It would be very nice to see any one of those show up, let alone all three! Thanks for sharing.

That’s a very nice trio. Too bad they don’t make them like that anymore.

Thanks everyone! I’ve been hunting for an Astor 9” kris for a couple years now; just need the 13” kris and fish to complete my Astor set so it’s fun chipping away at ‘em 🙏🏽

There were discussions as to whether it was "Kemper" or "Kerper". That stamp is so crisp that it is easy to read.

Wow! They are all great but I especially like the IMCO because the 28 cm with bayonet blade is my favorite picklock.

Can you post a group photo of all your Astors? I'll bet it would be pretty awesome.
