Re: 9” Bernie

That is nice, when was it made? I have a 9 in. picklock that I got from Bernie which has "Limited Edition 2005" stamped on the button side and "Frank B Italy 008" on the back. Obviously it is from 2005 and I know his stamp has evolved over the years but I don't know enough about the evolution to dat...

Re: Edwin Jay

Thom,

Portlandmike's photo is of a dovetailed spring. See how the kickspring fits into what is essentially a receptacle? That is a dovetail, as opposed to a knife where the backspring and kickspring are one piece. Make sense?

And another forum knife

This was possible because of our leader Michele (Arthas). I believe these were the first run of the Due Buoi stilettos (not counting any prototype(s). I went back in the forum and found my review from March 2007 and the specifications supplied by Michele. Here they are: Jim The first thing I noticed...

Re: Imitation Horn

The latest report had 9 separate incidents of women being charged with larceny (and 1 man), and one woman charged with stalking. The stalking charge intrigued me as no details were provided except her name, age, address, the date, and the charge.

Still another forum knife

Back around 2005 I had a Pro Tech Godfather jazz and thought that a Godfather with a mirror polished blade scaled in real horn would be the perfect example, so I brought the idea up here calling it the "Godfather for stiletto collectors" to see if there would be any interest. There was some interest...

Yet another forum knife

Here is one provided by our own Tanto. It is a Mikov leverlock scaled in dark horn with filework and the "Brotherhood of Blades" etch. I don't remember how many members have them, mine is number 010.

Another Forum Knife

This one is an AB/SKM slim leverlock from 2004 with real snakewood scales. My understanding is that snakewood comes from a small tropical tree. The rear stamp on mine is 31/50.

Forum Knife

Over the years we have commissioned several TalkBlade forum knives. I'll be posting some of mine. This is what I believe was our first. It is named after the durable Imitation Horn Thread started by JerrBear back in 2002 and continuing to the present. Jim IMG_0403.jpg IMG_0402.jpg IMG_0399.jpg

Thanks,
