AGA 38cm (15") swivel bolster

Post by Peiper »

Here is my only AGA 15" switchblade. What a beast. Here it is next to a 13" and 11". Do they still make these? I am surprised how fast the blade opens for its size. Please look at the tang stamp and tell me about when it was made. Thank you in advance.

Very nice! I'm fairly sure the 15" is an earlier Campolin knife made by Falcon.

I am too, and at least many of the later ones have the A. G. A. Campolin stamp.

I only have one 15" auto marked "Falcon". All my other non-AGA 15's (18's too) I have are marked "INOX" or "Rostfrei" over "Italy".

Here are my largest and smallest. The 15" has a genuine amethyst for the deployment button.

Hey Bob. I'm glad that you are happy with the knife. I bought it along with the three others about twenty years ago. The other three all have the AGA Campolin stamp. All four of these were all made around the same time. The only difference in this one is the tang stamp. The construction is identical.
