Re: Coricama info wanted

If there is no blade loss, and just light scratches, that might not take so much off it's value but the difference between mint and almost mint is still a lot.

Re: Coricama info wanted

That's a great knife. It is from the 50s; the exact date isn't really important. If you are just curious someone might have a more exact date. The scales are stag. They look like the originals. It could be worth a lot, well over $1000. But that blade sharpening is going to cut it's value down to abo...

Re: "No Name Style"

I always called those guardless Medics. I've never seen any other name for them. Based in what I've seen, the one you have, with the longer flat lock tab, is the more rare one.

Re: Very Vague ID Request

actually, the girl "Annebelle" said her Dad (Jerry Garcia) gave her the knife. Here's what she publicly posted Yeah, I definitely believe her story. I looked at the Instagram page and that is indeed Jerry Garcia's daughter you are talking with and that knife used to be owned by Jerry Garc...

Re: Very Vague ID Request

Wow, the story seems to check out too. Don't see that much on the internet. Besides for the absurdity of Jerry Garcia's daughter having an Instagram account, this is pretty cool. Although, I would still be hesitant to say that knife the girl found is the exact knife in the poster. If there was some ...

Re: Loose safety on a Frank B

Isn't there some thing you can do with Super Glue? Like you put Super Glue on a tooth pick and run it along the slot to make it thinner? I've heard people talk about that. Though, it always seemed kind of risky.

Re: Test picture

I too want to see more test pics. Does that file work go all the way to the guards??

Re: Rizzuto Estileto Milano

You'll get your best return on Ebay...unless they remove it before the end of the auction. It seems like that happens about 50% of the time. Though, if you have never sold knives there, you might have better luck. You could sell it on our auction site but you won't get as much as you would on Ebay. ...

Re: SloJoe 28cm Picklock

Those are definitely handmade bolsters on your knife. It's a solid piece of brass soldered on the liner and then pivoted on a sander to get that shape. They all look uniform because that is just kind of the natural shape of guardless bolsters. Here is some solid ones I have that were all done with f...

Re: SloJoe 28cm Picklock

Do you (or anyone else) know of a production stiletto that uses those solid guard-less bolsters or are they only used by manglers and custom makers? The builder/customizer makes those bolsters from a solid piece of metal. Many AGAs have bolsters made from a solid piece (never guardless as far as I ...

Re: Loose safety on a Frank B

One thing I have done is to take an exacto knife or razor and cut the safety slot a little bit longer. Then that little longer part holds the safety in place because it is much thinner than the rest of the slot.

That little twister tool is real smart. Did you come up with that?
