Re: B. Svoboda 7”

A lot of the B Svoboda swedge blades have the really deep swedge. Here is another one:

Re: B. Svoboda 7”

The picklock has a really deep swedge that is almost as big as the one on a bayo.

Re: An overwhelming Inheritance

I've sold a few of them but I've been trying to nail down asking prices for the black swing guards/rizzutos. If anyone wants to make an offer in PMs, I'm open. If they are in good shape with no major issues (peek on that big Rizzuto for example), then this is what you would probably get on the knif...

Re: B. Svoboda 7”

It seems like most of the swedge blade vintage picklocks I have seen had the B.Svoboda stamp.

Re: Are Kris blades a "working" blade profile?

I started making kris blades recently. Once I figured out the technique, it wasn't too hard. Basically, you cut the wavy profile, then to sand the edge, you run it length-wise down the rounded end of a sander. Sharpening the edge is done the same way. But to get the right side-tapering degree (whate...

Re: My First Latama

And so why was there so much bad soldering done on these types of rockers compared to regular rockers? Most button/rockers are the traditional hollow NS on the steel hump. Yet those are rarely fallen off. Most of the missing button vintage pls I have seen are the flat base ones.

Re: Colt II (chinese manufacture) automatic Pocket Knife

Those are neat knives. I have one. I like the little lever to press the lock back. It's interesting to see such innovation on a cheaper knife.

Re: BOBC

Is there a locking tab on the bobc knives? Just wondering how the blade locks. Yes, the same sear that holds the blade closed also locks the blade open. It's basically the same as your standard lever but instead of a lever pulling the sear up, it has a normal rocker where a button lifts the sear. L...

Re: BOBC

It is weird that Bo/c stilettos aren't more common. I guess the makers just consider the standard swivel bolster stiletto to be the way switchblades are supposed to be. One other thing about a single sear bo/c (which is the common kind) is that you are limited in size to about 11". Anything bigger t...

Re: Latama knife

That is one of the most sought-after knives out there. It's a shame about the blade, though. In that condition, a lot of collectors would probably pass on it even at a low price. There was a 7" Latama flatguard on the auction site with a blade like that a few months ago that had a buy now of $100 an...

Re: My First Latama

So like they torched it too quickly and the solder didn't fully melt? That is the only way I have seen that melted solder would not be on the steel.

Pay attention to those missing button flat base rockers ones in the future and let me know what those ones look like (remaining solder or not).

Re: Schatt & Morgan John Henry Express #71 Torched Stag

From what little I can see they both look like legit S&M JH knives. The differences like you mention are not too unusual. Lots of modern knives will have slight differences like that, like a group was made with one type of liners, then another group was made with a different type of liners. I don't ...
