I could be wrong on the date. There hasn't been much change in this model in a long time. It's a G.O. Massaro made knife. Nice Italian utilitarian knife.

The scales on that Primo are really stunning. 8)
It's almost like thers a white flame with wisps of smoke rising from it .

Beautiful knife ,I would have that blade professionally restored and polished and I would be reluctant to let it go.

Although I have seen a few Italian trapdoor knives that are similar, its the first time I have seen this button style and that way of opening ,I too thought these were gravity operated ,so I learned something aswell.

Thanks a lot for sharing it here ..

Bernie, I have known you for about 20 years. I Have bought many knives from you over the years. I met you at the Glass City Knife Show with Bob, Salvatore and Randy. I enjoyed our conversations. Please try not to be so negative. I don't enjoy reading your attacks on Bill. I come here to enjoy our hobby. Not looking to argue.

That's to bad, I bought a couple Boker lever locks a few years back that the seller was concerned about being fakes on the cheap and I think it was him I got them from. From pictures that I've seen here and other forums I am convinced they are the real deal. Don't know what he has against Bill but at least he's honest even if he is a little hot headed. I'm not condoning his actions against Bill at all but it is what it is.

Sammy, I think you got those from Duncan (HDC). Not Bernie.

PS-Anybody heard or seen anything from HDC? Seems like a long time since he has been around.

Bottom model "should be" a patented AGA CAMPOLIN Italian OTF knife. The design was or should I say SHAPE of the body was again used several years ago when the Campolins sub division AKC ITALY created the "EVO" OTF KNIFE line
