Recent Fulcrum Release

Post by Chris51P »

I was able to purchase this very solid and nice fulcrum release recently. She had been neglected and forgotten. But then a she got some attention and a spit polish. Now she is cooool. All nickel silver components with full brass liners. Has great lockup with no movement. This leads me to think it could be from the 60's. Any thoughts on time frame?

Whoever cleaned it up did a magnificent job. It looks like a 60's knife to me.

That's a really great find; fulcrum release, swedge blade, fantastic condition. I think we all would like to come across one like that.

The swedge together with the fulcrum all shined up like that make this extra fun to look at. It’s a really cool knife. Thanks for posting!
