Re: Ok, here's another that I have questions about...

Yeah, that is actually the more common model of swinger. Besides for Rizzutos, there are very few bo/c swingers.

I think that one is actually an 8", not a 9". It's a good one, though.

Re: Rizutto repair experts, looking for some knowledge...

Lol, yes; use a torch. For the soldering, just use the small Butane one that they sell by the soldering stuff. For treating the rocker, you will need a bigger one. Get the largest size torch (yellow button) that comes with a tank of map gas. It is usually around $45-$50. And in the future, you shoul...

With soldering the bolsters on a Rizzuto. The first thing you want to try is the reuse the existing solder. That usually works if you are careful. If you need more, use this stuff: https://www.ebay.com/itm/11000-SBSK-Harris-Stay-Brite-Silver-Bearing-Solder-Stay-Clean-Liquid-Flux-Kit/252631608462?epi...

Re: Newest additions to my collection, both on the repair list

Those vintage Americans have such weak springs that if you have one that is firing poorly it is pretty easy to just reach in a bend them forward. And because the backspring is pinned almost all the way up, you don't need to worry about an uneven kickspring bend pushing back on the backspring like yo...

Re: Broken shur snap

Definitely get that one fixed up. If that is an aluminum button it is one of the older models.

Re: I'm confused about this auction

I was looking at the bids for the original listing of the Chinese stiletto. You can see the highest bidder was an unregistered user: https://www.ebay.com/bfl/viewbids/192782312062?item=192782312062&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2565 You see that a lot with the unexplainably high bid item. I would ...

Re: I'm confused about this auction

The brass pivot makes me think it probably is. I don't know what to make of that backspring, though. I don't think I've ever seen a Japanese stiletto with a fulcrum or ring.

Re: Springer/gun

I see these little novelty guns on the pawn store shows sometimes. I've never really thought about it before but what do they do about the license and registrations of these kind of things?

Re: No bottom bolsters?

If you look at the last pic you can see the top part of the spring is not there.

As for the stamp and non-flat guards, that means it's a later knife, right?

Re: No bottom bolsters?

if the high blade peaking can be corrected ? I also noticed that when the blade is in the closed position that the lock tab is raised - what is this an indicator of and can it be corrected ? Look at the sear hole on the blade, you can see some stretching on the outside. That is most of the peek rig...
