Re: Best quality Italian switchblade

... The best modern Italian stilettos are probably the AGA 10" picklocks from around 2012 to 2016... Totally agree! They are very well built and have the feel of one from the golden age, post WW2 until the '58 ban. The 10" size is a winner. More heft than the 9" and more handy than t...

Re: Condor Knife & Tool CTK 4057C14.4

Then there is this.... 111-1111_IMG_MOD.JPG Mr. Corpse gifted me this when I visited his abode some years back. Not as flexible, usewise, as these war hammers / tomahawks / hatchets, etc., but the mere sight of this will either intimidate the intruder into panicky flight or set him to rolling on the...

Re: Walt's Flatguards

Got some really nice ones there. Love the horn on #3. I have three WFG's, all from the first run. They were groundbreaking, inspired as they were by the TSF forum picklocks, the first such knives made in Maniago in some 45 years. These are some of Frank B's best knives.

Many Happy Returns, Dave.

I'm sure I already extended this previously, perhaps on another forum? Anyway, tell us about your day and if you got what you asked for??

Re: WTS Armando Beltrame 9" ATS-34 Stag and Burl

Those are very good knives. I have two of them, one of which is also a burl, so I don't need more. I wish they had made the ATS 34 in an 11" stiletto. That would have been outstanding. :!:

Re: looking for fishing knife blanks

Not sure I understand why people choose to dig up ancient threads, and this one, whose previous post was over 7 years ago, qualifies as ancient. Aren't there more current topics to respond to? If not, starting a new one is always welcome.

Re: I have a Cold Steel Smatchet but...

Generic ones go for under $20, but you already have one of those. $400 is a lot of money, but if you want the brand name, that is what you pay. Is it worth it? Years ago in Hong Kong, I asked a shopkeeper if the Gucci luggage he sold was real Gucci. He replied it was better than Gucci as it was made...

Yes that is the term I couldn't put my finger on, or my brain to recall. Senior moment???

And I agree with your opinion that these knives should be left alone.

Re: False button?

I didn't notice that, how do they lock up then? These do not have locking pins, thus there are no holes in the lock tab. The blades do not "lock" open as you would find in other old and new stilettos. Only the friction of the cut out part of the blade against the lock tab keeps these open...

Re: False button?

I will say they are now collectible !! The false button models command fairly high prices over normal lock backs. Natcherly can you post a picture of yours? I like them!! OK here are some pictures as you requested! 20190205_102202_resized.jpg 20190205_102358_resized.jpg 20190205_102431_resized.jpg ...

Re: False button?

I think the 1960s knives are what they are- the closest thing to switchblades you could get. At some point, they may be collectible. I sure hope so. I've got two 13" false buttons, both of which are built like a proverbial brick s#|+ house. They are as massive and as well made as the 13" ...
