Blue Super-Automatic

Post by Panzerfaust »

My cousin bought me this knife at a Mexico border town in the summer of 1984. It has never been used or carried and is in as good of condition as when I got it. OTF knives were often called "stilettos" or less frequently "angel blades" in the 1980s.

We used to call them Stiletto's also. Some of my friends still do.

Hi Matt,
Your knife looks like the day it left the shop. I really like the blue scales and the slide release is blue too, not black.

It's hard to think that you didn't use it. If I had owned it I would have used it. Were you ever tempted?

Yes I remember everyone called them stilettos back then. Bell Metal model K 108! The blue handles were a bit rare......

No because I had a black-handled one that was used when I got it and I later got a NATO Military that I carried some.
