Re: IMCO knife

That looks like a shorter dove-tail spring. Can you take a pic of the inside of the handle at the very bottom?

Re: Movie Switchblades

If you check out the Goofs section of IMDb for this flick (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1302006/goofs/?tab=gf&ref_=tt_trv_gf), you will see there were MANY inaccuracies of all kinds. This particular one did not make the list. Lol, those goofs lists find the tiniest mistakes, like spelling errors in...

Re: Movie Switchblades

Next time you hear someone praising the historical accuracy of The Irishman, show them this scene which takes place around 1957.

Re: Problems with jndiana pattada.switchblade

Those have a real awkward button mechanic that ends up with the blade getting stuck shut (or stuck open or won't stay shut). I would try to return it. But if you got it from a site (and not a member here) that might end up being a nightmare.

Re: Reading about blade lock pins on the 101 forum - Pin Question

Not to mention that installing a separate locking pin is actually harder than just making the blade with a locking pin on it.

Re: Knife Mechanisms by LeRoi Price - Book

There is a picture that gets posted from time to time with several liners each with a different button mech.

Re: Selling some production stuff

Those two are bo/cs, not swivels. The three swivels (5, 9 & 10 from left) are all true transitionals (lined bolsters).

Selling some production stuff

Here is some stuff I am selling. The one on the far left is Spanish, the one on the far right is Russian. All the rest are Italian. Besides for the Maltese Cross and Fish on the left side, they are all older picklocks, tranistionals and bo/cs. Actually, I don't know how old the Russian one is. That ...

Re: NEW Italian Switchblade book!

The first pic two messages up from this one has a curved knife in the middle (to the left of the Maltese Cross). I have that knife. I have a hard time believing it is Italian. It's pretty clearly either Pakistani or Indian.
