Really nice Mike! The 2 lockbacks on the right, remind me of swinguards- without the guards. Since there's no hole in the tang where the guards would pin to, they certainly aren't missing. Cool little knives.

They have the 2 pins in the bottom bolster like the swing guards have.
I like the bolster-less stag model. Not very common.
They all appear to have the German style blades

Really cool, portlandmike! I dig ’em! I’ve never seen the lockbacks before and would love to know more. What are they, if you don’t mind me asking?

Really nice knives.

My collection is almost exclusively 16cm knives. My first Italian auto (1969) was a 16cm, so I've always had a soft spot for them.

I have plenty of 16cm swivel bolsters and picklocks, plus one button open/close, one swing guard, one fulcrum release and two fish.

I've looked in vain for other patterns in 16cm, but your collection gives me hope that they are out there.
