Re: A Fascinating Man

He was fascinating but also troubled. It apparently took Francis Ford Coppola some time to convince Sterling that he could do the part of the police captain. His insecurity was debilitating.

Re: Signups for Rick Giroux Commemorative Knives

All of Walt's most recent runs have been N/S swiveling bolsters by Frank, he's definitely got them on hand / has the tooling... I guess my question is who on earth is making huge orders through him if Walt's run is finished and hitting shelves now? Perhaps 3knives is restocking itself? Almost all F...

I understand Frank will not build a swivel bolster knife with NS tops. That material is too soft and would wear prematurely which is why SS is used. Moreover, a NS swiveling bolster is a new part.

Re: Do any of you store your kick-spring autos CLOSED?

I keep almost all my knives in the open position. I think they look better that way, and I have the room. Here are some examples:

Re: Hello

Just joined. Been collecting knives for a while, recently got 3 Italians, Walt’s classics. Almost hooked. Sounds like you have some nice pieces. The urge to obtain more of them will likely grow if personal experience and the experiences of others on this forum hold true. "Almost" in this ...
