Mikov OTF project

Post by tanto »

About two years ago I got two Mikov OTFs on local auction. Both were in bad shape (the side panels falling off) but the blades looked good so I decided to get them. First I thought I would use CF like on my other Mikov OTF but this time I opted for G10 and asked Mydlinka TM to engrave the scales for me.

The knives as they arrived:

And what they look like now. The frame was sand blasted, the interior of the knives cleaned, both side panels replaced, So what do you think? They look different and not like the originals, but I do like them.

Yes, and I found picture of it in their brochure from 1980 celebrating 25 years of the company.
