Re: Chatellerault switchblade marked T F BASTET AMSTERDAM

I'm from Amsterdam in The Neherlands. Bastet was one of the oldest cutlery stores around there for over threehundred years. It's history goes all the way back to the 1600's. It closed in 1984.

Re: New 13"picklock

Were the 2003 run specs the same, apart from the horn used? I saw a youtube movie about them and they looked great and seem to open fast.

Re: New 13"picklock

I saw one of your trannies and it looked good. Scars can just add something extra. For a guitar they call that mojo. :wink:

Leverlock stiletto?

This is on the antique section on 3Kknives. Never seen it before. Is there someone here who knows more about it. Was it perhabs the inspiration for Bill to design the leverletto? I'm curious.

Re: italian stiletto - frosolone - details

I'm sorry.....I was mistaken. They are described in the Switchblades of Italy book. Must have overlooked that part of the story. Made in Maniago to serve the Frosolone market.

Re: italian stiletto - frosolone - details

In my mind Frosolone conjures up a stiletto with tiny guards, no back bolsters and a blade that's between a swedge and a bajonet. :shock: I'm still learning. Beautiful piece. :D

Re: New 13"picklock

Thank you.....firing is good for a 13. Lock up is good. The only complaint is that it has a tiny little bit of so called banana blade. It doesn't bother me but like to hear your opinion. The horn is georgeous.

Re: New 13"picklock

That's the right one. The price listed is including VAT. Outside Europe you don't have to pay that. I guess.
