I don't recall seeing any 13" pls with swedge blades. Though, that could be the blade from a transitional put on a picklock handle that happened to have all the holes line up.

Yep they made 1950s knives with the flat swedge blades in all the sizes; 7cm thru 33cm.

The price seems high to me. But it should still be worth a decent sum being a minty 13.” I think that seller hopes to get the opening price but offers a high buy out in case you gotta have it now!

If a collector is completing a set it probably is worth the $599.00

And not just any bug bites; "random" bug bites. The larvae responsible for that job needs a serious reprimand. There are plenty of hard-working larvae seeking gainful employment if he can't cut it: https://www.rainbowmealworms.net/dermes ... le-larvae/

They might be good fishing bait for really small fish, or maybe not.

Looks like they make him drunk, or does the little fella just want a belly rub. What kind of bird is that?

He's an obnoxiously tame Bearded Barbet. They're kind of like mini toucans.
