Here's the rest, pic heavy

Post by kugr » Fri Feb 08, 2019 3:02 am

Picked up some good, some bad, and lots of parts.
The wandy needs repair, the kerper doesnt open fully, hangs up, maybe a deep cleaning will help. The blue works, the fake carbon fiber doesn't lock closed.
The misc parts might be able to be combined into working specimens.
The 2 lockbacks (made italy 6) can be scale donors... possibly

Looking for those un-repairable, lost cause stilettos.

You want to be careful with lots of parts knives because they are often the stuff someone who works on knives deemed to be unfixable.

The one on the right in the first pic might be a very easy fix. Unscrew the front scale and take it off (leave the rest assembled). Does the blade stay shut now? If it does, which is probably will, then the scale was pushing down on the button or the arm so the sear wouldn't go all the way down. So you will have to expand the top part of the hole so the scale doesn't push down on the button.

I think you will find that trying to swap parts on vintage knives is not worth the trouble, if it works at all.
