Re: Whats the difference between T-6 and G-10 scales

Is that what the handles of stuff like Daltons and Microtechs is made with?

Re: knife restoration and identification

Does anyone know how recently 14.5" picklocks were made?

Re: knife restoration and identification

At first I thought the front top bolster had a little curve at the bottom but now I notice the third pic shows the locktab is clearly that of a picklock. That's actually a pretty awesome knife and might also have a two-piece spring. Unless the seller wants some insane price, I would probably say go ...

Re: knife restoration and identification

Isn't it much like the current productions? https://www.3knives.com/en/product/2361/stiletto_38cm_-_15_fa-s38b-hb.html It's the same basic knife but all the newer ones I've seen have the AGA stamp. And I don't know how the OP one could have gotten like that in just a few years. Maybe if someone was...

Re: knife restoration and identification

One other thing: I just noticed that the backspring is sticking out a little. It shouldn't be a big deal as it can be bent back in but it could be a sign that there are other issues. Be sure to find out everything that is going on with this knife if you are going to get it.

Re: knife restoration and identification

I'd guess 70s or 80s. A lot of people will refer to these as "transitionals" because they happen to have all the characteristics of a true trans (swivel, lined NS bolsters, d-stamp rocker) but they aren't actually the post-ban swivel-bolsters that still have the quality of the picklocks. B...

Re: knife restoration and identification

If the blade is unsharpened that looks like it could be a great knife with a little work. It's rare to see a 14.5" with horn like that. If you did get it, you'd have to get the spring fixed. There is a lot of debate on how much knives should be restored but a switchblade has to have a working s...

Re: Mozzetta Knife

As you can see in the pics, I started putting the stamp in one place but the decided to move it over. I didn't sand the entire first stamp away because the 3D effect looked kind of cool. I think I might have my next stamp made like that, which a second diamond slightly behind the main one.

Re: A.G.A. Campolin "Sahara"

Here is that Russian one that was around about two years ago. While the OP knife says 2017, I'm guessing they(AGA) either came up with the design or there was a previous Italian knife that both the AGA and Russian are modeled after.

Re: A.G.A. Campolin "Sahara"

That's a cool knife.

There was a Russian knife being sold about two years ago that was that exact design. Is this AGA modeled after that one, or is the Russian one modeled after the AGA one...or are the both modeled after some other, earlier knife?

Re: Whats the difference between T-6 and G-10 scales

Everyone always tells me not to work with G-10 or I will surely die. I think the cloud of micro-glass particles is real bad to breathe in and it can get through most masks.

Is the T-6 stuff similar in that respect?

Re: Switchblade repair

Considering the shape of the blade, and the lack of any stamp or ID, the best thing to do would be to make a new blade.

Re: Switchblade repair

I wonder if a knife maker put a blade from one of his knives on the handle from a different knife. The only time I have ever seen extreme banana blade like that is when I tried to see if one blade would fit a different handle.

Re: Grandpas old Schrade auto

The spring can be replaced fairly easily (just get that middle pin out). And the rest can be cleaned...if you wanted to do that. You might want to consider just doing the minimum to get it working and leave it in the condition it is in now.
