Absolutely beautiful Rizzy and to find one in flat grind! Please forgive my lack of knowledge. Is that an actual Italian made Rizzy I’m looking at

To my knowledge, there is no such thing as an Italian made Rizzuto.

Hi Jim,

Yes, of course I know that. But thanks. Anyone that buys/collects should know this.

With the myriad of different types of switchblades both young and old. Not every buyer/collector even well informed ones will know this. Some collectors interests might be in completely different areas and they may have never even bought a Rizutto. Also maybe they just started collecting. Especially when you consider how many people spread misinformation all over the entire Internet!

I've already stated that the Rizutto is Japanese. Thanks for your reply. They are scarce though in the event you didn't know that.

Of course I know their scarce. I’m implying that to a novice in Rizutto knives or a beginner might misinterpret is all. I read your entire post, I’m saying when using the word original in the title, can throw some people off. There is so much false information regarding these things out there it’s absurd! I respect your knowledge of different knives and I certainly am not trying to disrespect you. Maybe I got the wrong idea in your reply to Jim. It made it seem like all of this is common knowledge or something. I don’t see it that way. There are just way too many switchblades out there for anyone to be an omniscient buyer/collector as we are always learning new things! I’m actually looking for a Picklock Rizutto like this one. It looks better quality steel compared to all the other ones I’ve seen but I like it!

Wow - what a cool collection of Rizzy's and a real blast from the past! Nice! Makes me wish I'd held on to some of them I had in the past.

Unfortunately the JPL's (Japanese Pick Locks) are notorious for soft steel and bent backsprings. When I find one it almost always has to go to Jeremy for repairs.
