Re: Antonio Contini Masterpiece

Beautiful design and execution! Everything about it looks elegant and precise. I've visited his site a few times and have been sorely tempted. Do the blades on his automatics tend to be wiggle-free, and if so, do they stay that way after the mechanism breaks-in? I own one of his knives from previou...

Antonio Contini Masterpiece

My dear friend and Master Cutler, Antonio Contini, had a go at one of my designs. He changed it a bit, and while not exactly like mine, it's pretty close, and, of course, entirely gorgeous. No, I didn't buy it, but a fellow collector did. https://images2.imgbox.com/dd/81/garDCNml_o.jpg https://image...

Dave, I was just kidding a little. Hope your not mad, I'm bald too!
Mad as in angry? Of course not, my email is oldandfat for a reason. Mad as insane? Definitely. You're my bud, Sam!

Hot Diggity

Two Irish nuns have just arrived in USA by boat and one says to the other, "I hear that the people in this country actually eat dogs." "Odd," her companion replies, "but if we shall live in America, we might as well do as the Americans do." Nodding emphatically, the mother superior points to a hot d...

Scrawny Monkey

The picture is a dual action automatic from the Vallottons and called a "Chunky Monkey". https://images2.imgbox.com/95/25/794H9ogK_o.jpg Inspired by this unique grind I narrowed the width and created a 12" picklock swing guard with a bottomless fishtail design. I guess you could call mine a Scrawny ...

Top 8 Idiots of the Year

1. AT&T fired President John Walter after nine months, saying he lacked intellectual leadership. He received a $26 million severance package. Perhaps it's not Walter who's lacking intelligence. 2.

Re: Why not more picklocks?

Maniago has always advanced toward cheaper production methods that are more easily assembled from generic parts, so stamped stainless bolsters replaced two-piece, solid, or stamped nickel silver. It was easier to make a pivot bolster than didn't require precise fitting or adjustment, so that's what ...

A Close Shave

An old cowboy walks into a barbershop for a shave and a haircut. He tells the barber he can't get all his whiskers off because his cheeks are wrinkled from age. The barber gets a little wooden ball from a cup on the shelf and tells the old cowboy to put it inside his cheek to spread out the skin. Wh...
