Re: 8" Button Open/Close

I like it. Is there a name for both ears going down? Thank you Thom! I THINK it's referred to as "Sparrow's Wings"? But, not positive. I was attracted to this piece with it's "wasp" shape, steel liners and pins. Decent horn. Thought the lack of no top pins was interesting, and of course, the PATENT...

Jimbrown hi mate I’m not sure if the spring has a dovetail
I don’t know how to tell, flatguard told me the Coricama was a later one 55 to 65
...You're not alone on the dovetail subject Joe. I've never known how to tell either.

Re: Rizzuto estileto milano knife

It's my understanding, and I'll SURELY be corrected if I mis-understand, that the Italian swinguards came out in the 1960's. Giving the Japanese something to copy.
