Italian switchblades have had quality control problems since at least the 1980s with many that have non-functioning safeties, and I hate to hear the quality is going even further down hill.

The Frank B's sure have some pretty bond horn.
I sold this one 2 days ago. It is a picklock with the red dot safety and also has a dagger blade.

Sorry Panzerfaust. I went on such a rant yesterday about this issue, that I decided to pretty much rewrite the entire post. But you’re right and I hope some of these issues gets corrected! Take care man 👍

Frank B's Kriss blades are the most aesthetically pleasing ones I've personally handled from modern times - I think it's the ridge in the middle - others from other cutlers are more rounded. He also puts an actual edge on em... or at least he did with mine.
