I still am hoping to find out about the knife on the right in the first pic. Does anyone know what that one is?

I believe it’s an 1800s Frosolone style knife marked DURANTE. Durante was a cutlery family who had a store in Rome in the mid-to-late 1800s into the early 1900s.

But hopefully the author Paolo can tell us more. :). I’d love to see how the locking/release mechanism works

Here is what they sent to me.

"The book costs 95 euros, but for the first days of sale, it will cost 85 euro ( plus a book shipping costs for U.S.A. 22.75 euro, if you take two book the shipping cost is 30,44 euro).
Total 107.75

You can pay with a bank transfer."


Shipping is a bit high, but guess it is via air mail, or courier service such as DHL, or FedEx, or ?

Thank you.
I have no experience with bank transfers.

The sear must move forward, instead of pulling up. I wonder if that thing on the front is a sliding button or if there is something else (maybe on the other side). And that locktab looks too small to be pulled by hand (I guess that could just be an illusion from the pic).
