Even during this Summer of Covid 19, pool parties are as popular as cold beer on a hot Sum...

Re: Boker 712R

I haven't seen any in horn, not to say that they don't exist. I have seen them in a few colors of bone, both smooth and jigged. Does anyone know the significance of the "R"? My only example is one of the newer ones in jigged delrin, and it is etched simply as "712"

Re: Curious

It appears to be a Robert Klass Kissing Crane leverlock. These are well made desirable knives. The bad news is that from the photo is appears that the blade is "down" a good bit which means much of it has been ground away from sharpening. This is actually common among vintage German leverlocks as th...

Re: My latest Walt’s

Outstanding group - thanks for sharing. I especially like the light horn and what appears to be white bone.

Re: Where is a good honest place to buy autos

I met Barry Adams of Adamsinternational at the 2012 Blade Show. We had a good conversation and he seemed like a nice guy. It doesn't surprise me that they lube and test everything.

Re: Imitation Horn

Great to see you post Roccomo! I have come to think that it should be the unanswerable question, which keeps this thread alive, a suitable tribute to Jerry.

Re: G. Grafrath Springers

Bill is right (as usual), they are examples of fine craftsmanship. I got hit with the old German leverlock bug over 15 years ago and can't seem to get rid of it. The frustrating thing for me is I like pristine examples. These knives were made to be used and most were.
