Paul used to mill backsprings out of one piece of thick steel.

Re: Selling some production stuff

Those two are bo/cs, not swivels. The three swivels (5, 9 & 10 from left) are all true transitionals (lined bolsters).

ALL SOLD Selling some production stuff

Here is some stuff I am selling. The one on the far left is Spanish, the one on the far right is Russian. All the rest are Italian. Besides for the Maltese Cross and Fish on the left side, they are all older picklocks, tranistionals and bo/cs. Actually, I don't know how old the Russian one is. That ...

Re: NEW Italian Switchblade book!

The first pic two messages up from this one has a curved knife in the middle (to the left of the Maltese Cross). I have that knife. I have a hard time believing it is Italian. It's pretty clearly either Pakistani or Indian.

Re: Website update

That library is pretty cool. I wish I would have been able to order stuff like that when I was a kid. All I had was that little ad where you could get the NATO OTF (the "stiletto") or the standard Italian side-opener (the "switchblade").

Re: A few of my favourite things

Great set up. It's odd to see a collection start like this. Usually collectors start with the cheaper and not so special stuff before moving on to those ones.

Re: no more sharperdeals auction

The decline of Sharper Deals auction is almost as disappointing as the decline as the quality of a show whose name we will no longer speak. Remember how great they both were five years ago? Don't get me wrong, SD just had some unfortunate circumstances; I do not favor executions like I do for certai...

Re: Which is the oldest knife

I think you mentioned the Coricama had a dovetail. If so, that would probably be the oldest.

Re: 7” Japanese swing guard MINT

I usued to have a bunch of JPLs but the only two I kept were a smokey scale 11" and a steel liner 7" with plated bolsters. Then I kept the two REM stamped ones. A...

Re: Rizzuto Estileto but no Milano?

Standard 9" Rizzuto. If I could take a look at it, I might be able to tell if it was a better one or one of the more flimsy ones (which I assume would be the later ones). It looks like it's in good shape.
