Re: Hafa adai

Not familiar with atulai, but Google says they're great to eat.

How do you prepare fish over there without your mammoth brick BBQ complex :mrgreen:

Bill, I have a 15"er made by Falcon, and it is so marked. This one does not have the Falcon stamp. Were all the 15 as well as the18 autos Falcon brand products?

Re: Freaknives.com....?

Thanks for coming here to add your input. Selling cheap generic knives is not the issue. Selling cheap counterfeit knives such as the AKCs is what most are steamed about. Some straight-shooting type questions: Are you aware there are counterfeit knives made in China and perhaps elsewhere for sale on...

Re: Freaknives.com....?

So Aaron is an upstanding citizen according to some, but his penchant for selling counterfeit knives belies that characterization. Is it possible he doesn't know about the actual source and legitimacy of what he is selling?

Re: Switchblade repair

Wondering if the hole in the pic could be welded, the back of the tang ground off and the hole drilled a little farther back to make it open all the way. Or am I dreaming. OK,but then the sear hole could well be out of alignment with the sear rendering the button mechanism useless. Yet another hole...

Re: Switchblade repair

Someone drank a little bit too much vino :!: Or someone had parts from 2 different knives and mated the two in order to sell a "complete" but ugly whole. That way he could realize more than he could from 2 incomplete knives good only for parts. BTW, anyone have a theory where the handle w...

Re: Switchblade repair

The very definition of a knife with a serious case of banana blade! I'll bet that blade which appears to have been sharpened and cleaned up on a coarse grinding wheel is not original to the knife. You can carefully remove metal from the top of the lock tab or from the blade cut out where the lock pi...

Re: Identification

First link does not bring up any picture. The other two do. The knife looks to be an Indian or Pakistani knife. Somewhat crude. Probably not all that old but age is not too important in this case.

Re: Walt's Latama 9"

Luke,those knives should not peek like that. It is a flaw. If you were to sell them at some future date, and such things have been known to happen as interests and /or circumstances change, this would certainly hurt the value. You should contact Walt about this. He should be made aware that QC is no...
