Help with a switchblade

Postby Mantiques » Wed Jun 13, 2018 3:58 am

I picked this up the other day. The only marking is the 440 stainless. Does anyone know who the maker may be? It is a good heavy knife with a wicked strong spring. It opens by moving the top of the handle sideways. Thank you

It looks like a Chinese scale-release automatic. It is worth about $20.00-$30.00 on the open market. It looks as if It could be useful.

Does the original Dalton have the same kind of scale release?
