Re: 15" AGA Purple kriss stiletto

OK, that's really ugly. You'll have to offer more than $150 for someone to take it off your hands.

Re: Walt's 13" Picklocks

As I know it, the stamp Pascotto, Renzo with the anvil is his personal brand and follows the Italian convention of surname first. The stamp Renzo Pascotto is used on prototypes and ones he claims as personally built. All 13" Walt's were built by RP at one time regardless of being so stamped. As Renz...

Hey Dave, I think that’s a sweet design. It would look great in brass and dark horn. How do you feel about using brass? Anyway, here is the Frosolone that Dave is referring to...

I really like that one!
Sounds great, and Jeremy is just the guy to pull it off!

Re: What’s the deal with..

I've owned half a dozen of them all purchased from Mike Kovalenko out of the Ukraine. Like the man said, unusual shapes, firing and locking mechanisms. Mike is good to deal with, low prices, never misrepresents and when he offers, the sale completes in minutes. I doubt that the are truly Russian, or...

This is such sad news!!! I really liked Don a lot! My prayers are with his wife and family. Thank you Dave for giving us the news.

Don Choura, 1/5/19 RIP

http://i765.photobucket.com/albums/xx296/dnlsause/DonC/s209.jpg It is with deepest regret that I must inform you of the passing of DonC at the age of 77. Because it was brought to my attention that Don hadn't posted in a while, I attempted to reach him by phone. After half a dozen tries, his wife, ...

Re: New AGA black widow

The one with the three dots is 720 euros, the stag 600. It's a fulcrum release 11" x 5 mm. Only $800 for the first one, such a deal. (Personally, I would get Jeremy to build me a 13" for 40% less and get a steel blade instead of the stupid stainless.)

Re: Tantolizer

The knife PortlandMike so graciously posted is indeed the one that inspired me and I think it looks awesome in brass and that horn. JimBrown257 should be able to build either of the designs I show here. I just wanted to see them on a larger scale, but Mike, yours is a gem. Gravknife and Sammy, thank...

Another Success Story?

Tyrone was having trouble in school; his teacher was always yelling at him, "You're driving me crazy, Tyrone; can't you learn anything? One day Tyrone's mother came to school to see how he was doing. The teacher told her honestly that her son was simply a disaster, getting very low marks, and that s...

Tantolizer

A week or so back one of my Facebook group members posted a beautiful bayonet bladed Frosolone by JimBrown257 which reminded me of a picture I had captured and saved a long time ago and shown below. This is a stylised version of a tanto (which Bill DeShivs called a "ridiculous grind that added nothi...

That's awesome. Is that the guy who makes the Sardinian knives?
You're probably thinking of Lelle Floris, but Antonio does as well.
