AGA Campolin Classic Line Picklocks

Postby Woolly Caterpillar » Fri Mar 15, 2019 1:53 pm

I continue to be impressed with the experience of forum members. I did a search regarding (slow) kicksprings and immediately found one describing the slow opening of the Campolin 70th anniversary picklocks, one of which I also own. And, yes, it also is a slow opener. Are the 2018's any faster? The reason I ask is because I may pick one up just for a different handle material but if the release is no different, I will pass. Yeah, I know this probably should not be a consideration but it is for me.

Well we all seem to like hard kicking knives, seems it's part of the fun. I remember reading Grandpa Campolin commenting that they should not me made to kick hard because that causes premature wear and self-destruction. I reasoned that if anyone would know, he would.

Interesting since my Campolin flat guard and 10" picklock are among the fastest opening (hardest kicking) autos I own. My Campolin Sahara is also a very strong opener as is my Campolin fishtail.
