Some of my favorite autos

Post by Millern »

Here’s is the “bulk” of my auto collection, submitted to your perusal. Some of them are “rebuilds or repairs”, limited by my tools and expertise. A few have been previously posted, here and elsewhere. (I think I need some “focus”!)

Great knives 8)

I have no American switchblades ,they never showed up where I could buy Autos from unfortunately.

Love the leverlocks shown aswell.

Really wish I could have got one of those paratrooper knives ,fills both my militaria and switchblade collecting needs perfectly.
Thanks for sharing them.

Thanks! In regard to the orange flight crew knives, I’m happy to have one from all three of the contractors. Unfortunately, the Logan Smyth knife has scales that someone painted black and then sanded most of the paint off, giving the orange/black speckled look. Otherwise, the knife works and looks as “new”.

Nice set brother! I have a couple of those EdgeCo knives. The 2nd and 3rd from the bottom. The little brass and wood leverlock and the pull to deploy knife, or whatever one might call it. I've had them both for decades, bought them back in the day straight from the Edge catalog!

Bob has one of those "pull" knives up on SD right now. They're an interested concept but they were made so cheaply by whomever Edge contracted with, and apparently they're not readily common these days. Probably because the survivor rate was low. I swear when I deploy the one I have that it makes the same noise my grandmother's screen door used to make when I'd pluck the spring on the door to make a noise. :)

Thanks for sharing the pics. Take care. Scott

I scored one of those EdgeCo pull release knives recently. It is possible to open it one handed, but it’s kind of awkward as you need to make a loop with the leather pull chord, put your index finger through the loop while you rest the back of the knife on top your other three fingers and give it a little yank with your index. It appears they were made in Mexico as that is what is stamped on my knife. They’re kind of like an automatic version of the old 007 folding knives.

Thanks for the positive comments! I bought what I could afford at the time from EdgeCo.
I think I “fixed” the other link so it can be viewed. There are a couple of EdgeCo autos there also.
