Rizzys

I am thinking about getting one for my collection. Which ones are the highly sought after/valued, and how can you tell clones from the real ones? Thanks. Scott

I think the best one is the 10.5" swedge blade Batwing. While none of them are very high quality, a lot of the 9" ones are very flimsy. If you come across a 9" one and wonder about it, let me know and I will look at it. There are some really rare ones with different color handles or stamps or sizes. They are mostly Japanese but some of them are Korean (those ones have the not smooth scales and often have a big gap around the button).

Yes, the Japanese ones are the "official" Rizzutos. They usually have the REM stamp but sometimes they don't. The Korean ones don't have Rizzuto stamps and don't look as cool (subjective, I know, but generally agreed upon).

This is the one I think is the coolest.
