Re: Made in Italy mean for export

It MAY have been marked that way for that market. It depends on what the buyer ordered.

Re: Made in Italy mean for export

No. Made in Italy is a generic marking.
Inox, inoxid, rostfrei are also generic. Knives could/can be ordered marked any way the customer wants.

Re: Random shop pictures

I have many bins of old stuff. They probably have been here for 17-18 years.
Out of site, out of mind.

Re: Random shop pictures

They are a little better than the NATOs, but far from the American knives.

Re: AGA 13" Batwing Problem

Open the knife to a 45 degree angle. Peen each side with a very small hammer and light taps.
Peen first side-test
peen second side- test
repeat as necessary
Do not bend the guards.

Re: AGA 13" Batwing Problem

It's almost always loose guards.
They flop, and prevent opening.

Re: Random shop pictures

Here's a full custom from some years back. It came through the shop for a shine-up on the way to a new owner.

Re: AGA 13" Batwing Problem

Tighten the finger guards. If they get loose, this happens.

Re: AGA 13" Batwing Problem

Look in the blade well at the spring. It will be rubbing on one of the liners. put a little drop of oil where it rubs.

Re: Shredded money scales

Use casting acrylic from Hobby Lobby to cast the scales. LMK if you do it this way, and I'll send you a link to the correct casting acrylic.
