Re: 1960's OTF Italian Trap Door stiletto

When I was a teen my parents took me to Europe every summer. I was in love with knives my whole life. The stuff I saw in Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Germany and France was amazing ! I wish it was more common to take pictures back then as it would be great to have photos of them all. Every tourist sto...

Re: 1960's OTF Italian Trap Door stiletto

I know they are rare but I also know what I see them sold for!!! Great knives !!! Your line up is out standing! I saw about ten of them on a cart in Rome back in the 1970s.....I should have grabbed a few back then!

Bernie: Those are selling for at least $900.00 each. The metal-handled versions for about $1100.00.
I see them listed for those prices but not selling for them.....But anything is possible!

Re: 1960's OTF Italian Trap Door stiletto

They are going for way more then they should...lol...$600 and up is what I see most often. Beautiful set and the info on which is more rare is correct. I remember these in Italy in the 1970s all over. I didn't like them too much back then, but they are very collectible now....Great find!!!

Re: Spring life?

Yes the true response is that it doesn't matter. The rapid and repeated opening and closing of the knife heats up the spring and could cause an issue.

Re: What kind of knife is this ?? Stamped (Italy Inox)

Imitation stag handles, bayonet blade. Now it is either made in Italy or Asia. The safety slot and pins, the color of the brass liners, and steel made me think it might be from Asia.

Re: swing guards.

There was a rumor that there were some 9" AKC fakes out there, but I never saw one. They have made fake lever locks of all kinds. The Korean copies of the Japan Rizzys were 1980-90s copies and cheaply made....
