Re: 9" "Topless Bolster"

That looks like a good one. Do these ones have the slot sear holes or regular round holes?

One of the other knives is a brass butterfly knife

Was it one of those Pakistani ones from the early 90s? I have been trying to find the brass one with no holes.

Most of the buyers of Italian stilettos are baby boomers, since we were of the era of "the switchblade", "pushbuttons".
I blame the legalize switchblades movement. Kids need to be told they can't have switchblades if you want them to become obsessed with getting one.

Re: Slip Joint Repair

It does look like the blade is not lined up enough with the backspring. You might just need to tighten the pivot, not completely replace it. EDIT: I just noticed you said you already took the pivot out. If that is not the problem, then there might not be enough pressure being put on the bottom of th...

Re: B.V. & F. ITALY

started making stilettos and using this stamp in 1958, which seems like a real odd time to start,
Probably just bad luck with the timing.

Re: Mini Japanese Lockback Stilettos

That black Batwing humpback has a VIC stamp. I don't think I've seen that before.

Re: PIC Japan Manual “Toggle Switch Lock” Stiletto

That lock release is pretty interesting. It is the same idea as one of those old Zipper autos, just this one only releases the blade. I thought about converting one of these. It should be simple, just install a kickspring and give the front of the blade a notch so the lock holds it shut. My only con...

Re: Mini Japanese Lockback Stilettos

That dagger blade one has a locktab. I don't think I've seen that on one of these before. Or I might have just not noticed it before.

Re: Old Frosolone campobasso,NOW AT AUCTION

That's a great knife. I have heard some people say this model (the 22cm, right) is fron the 30s and some say they are 40s. I think they are older than the bigger guard, tapered body ones like in the first post of this thread.

Re: My "grail" knife will soon be a realty!

Here it is. It's 10.75". You can't see it in the pics but it has the octogon locktab like the old ones. And the original had a flat top on the bottom bolster (not curved like the modern ones) so that is how I did it.

Re: Probably A Counterfeit

Counterfeit is not the right word. It's not one of the Italian vintage bo/cs but it is still a great knife. That double sear rocker is definitely the way to make a bo/c.

Re: Modern Russian "prison switchblade"

That's a neat one. I haven't seen one of these with a scale release before. And it has much more intricate engraving than any others I have seen.

100% was not made in prison, btw.
