Re: So what you all going to do?

This whole situation has grown to the extent that most people feel helpless in the face of just about everything, airlines, schools, sporting events, even ski resorts being closed. It is out of our hands, just as the disease itself appears to be. I am still recovering from my brush with mortality an...

Re: Ali Yanik

What do you mean, "get your coin"? I would bet he means that as a seller, get paid before you ship. Common sense, really. As a buyer who has paid, you are in a vulnerable position. I wonder if there is something like an escrow service available? Probably not worth it for the relatively small bucks ...

I have been looking at a couple of inexpensive "token" slots. (Hours of cheap entertainment). :mrgreen:
What does it cost to ship one of those things?

Yes, has the slightly lopsided guard that was typical of the pre-Beltrame period. Frank bought the tooling for these knives after the quality had deteriorated over time. Looks like you got a good one, however.

Re: The neatest lil novelty (5,5”) SKM white pearlex/swedge

I like those little ones too, the ones that have all the features of the big boys but just miniaturized. I believe Oreste DiBon made these back in the day. He is no longer with us, sad to say.

Is this piece marked SKM? I don't recall them selling these.

Mr. Lucentcrow,
Great looking display box. Keep up the collecting and you might end up with more knives than you have wood chisels! :mrgreen:

Are you for real, Bill? :roll: At first they said "Yes, is made in Taiwan." They acknowledged it. "We didn't know about counterfeit.Can you send a pics?

Re: Who makes the best modern stilettos ?

As to the original question, Renzo Pacotto probably made the best modern Italian stilettos, but I don't know if he is retired or not. He was not a volume producer, more of a semi-custom, limited run operation. He is getting up there in age. So is Frank B, but the family continues to produce high end...

Re: Who makes the best modern stilettos ?

Walt of Latama. The best new Italian. By far Walter does not make knives. He contracts with makers such as Frank B, Renzo P and others to make pieces to his specification. They are marked with his one of his tang stamps including the Cat and Latama. Walter then must market and sell them. He does we...

Re: WHEW! I grabbed the last one!

Sorry for your disappointment. Probably was a return. When I saw your Subject: WHEW! I grabbed the last one!, I thought maybe you were referring to TP at Costco. There has been a run (no pun intended) on paper products as well as sanitizing agents and, of all things, bottled water! Shelves are bare ...
