Re: Hubertus Shell Pullers

Your knives look great. What needed to be done to restore/repair them? Do you have a before photo?

Re: Sooo, has anyone else done this?!

I’ve come close to accidentally over bidding, but unlike my writing I double checked before clicking submit. I did accidentally buy a knife on eBay. I meant to put it on my watch list. I immediately contacted the sell and he was very understanding.

Re: Loose safety

It’s a temporary fix, but it does work. Be very careful you don’t want to snap the cap off the safety. The only real way to fix it is to take the knife apart.
I asked Al the same question about nine years ago. I noticed this is a this is an old thread that predates my asking by three years.

Re: Finding knives in England

Joe and Chris your knives are wicked beautiful. I’d say they look better than the example in the book. I’m a big fan of ram scales stilettos. Way cool!!!

Re: Chatellerault switchblade marked T F BASTET AMSTERDAM

I’m just wondering about the rust and the green oxidation. Shouldn’t that rust be removed? It’s only damaging the knife.? I think it should be restored at least cleaned up the rust.
