A pair from France

Post by jim d, »

Nothing rare or exotic about either of these but both are very nice. The top knife is a Cartailler-Deluc fulcrum release. the mirror finish on the blade is most impressive, typical of French knives. The bottom knife is a Gimel-Bargeon, commonly known as a silver bullet due to its extermely hard snap and the metal scales. You can't tell from the photo, but it has coined brass liners.

Nice 8) I'm a fan of the Bargeon knives. I have a dual action otf G. David Arbalete, and it's by far my favorite otf that I currently own. I also have one just like the second in your pic. Here's a vid I made of my "Silver Bullet"...
