Re: UNCLE HENRY 127UH

I admire your persistence.

So it is just like one of the Queens, right?

I did a Japanese swinger like that a while ago. Your's looks a lot better.

Re: Picked up a few... what do we know about thick backsprings and springs?

That 13" horn is a pretty cool old transitional. Notice the lower button; that is one thing to look for. That one has the 5mm steel, which is the thickest they ever used. In the pic, you can see three transitionals. The first has 3mm (actually 1/8") steel. That is what they usually use on ...

Re: Seeking info on a transitional piece

The Rostfrei stamp doesn't mean much, it wouldn't necessarily mean it was meant for the Germans and doesn't give you any idea about the age. I think they just thought that version of "stainless" sounded cool. There doesn't seem to be any pattern on how they used Stainless or Inox or Inoxid...

Re: Humpbacks pulled from ebay

neither of the two eBay humpbacks in the original post appear to have a locking pin. What's up with that? The coil spring ones are like that. Instead of the locking pin, the blade has a small notch like on a swinger or lockback. Then the tab has a piece that fits in there. Perhaps because a coil do...

Re: Here's the rest, pic heavy

You want to be careful with lots of parts knives because they are often the stuff someone who works on knives deemed to be unfixable. The one on the right in the first pic might be a very easy fix. Unscrew the front scale and take it off (leave the rest assembled). Does the blade stay shut now? If i...

Re: Humpbacks pulled from ebay

Beautiful knives again faster19 . Whats the very bottom one classed as or named ?...ls it still a humpback or another locking type ?. That is a fulcrum release. It is exactly like a leaf spring picklock except at the top of the backspring, instead of the locktab, there is a little protrouding hole ...

Re: MAURO MARIO

Even if there were originals with whatver scale type, it doesn't mean your particular knife is not a rescale. Can you post pics that show the questionable aspects?

Re: Humpbacks pulled from ebay

The seller probably got an offer to end the auctions early and took it.

I always thought the weirdest thing about Roadside (or whatever his name is this year) was that his posts weren't in all caps.

Re: False button?

That would make for a fine conversion but I would recommend just looking for a MII stamp picklock, they aren't too hard to find. And a vintage manual picklock is even more rare than your lockback so it isn't one you'd want to mess with. The ones you would have converted are normally newer knives tha...

Re: False button?

Yeah, I think it would be best to leave that one. If you do ever want a auto with a clip-point and lockback, just find a normal no-button one and have that one converted. Be careful, though, as a lot of those false-button stilettos are Japanese knives that are far inferior to the Italian ones like y...
