WOW!! And "caddy43" is doing his very first transaction on such an expensive piece? Bidding 2 minutes apart against himself? Something's wrong here...(yes, I'm confused as usual. Getting use to it).

Re: I just ordered a Ganzo G719 SS Folding knife (auto)

OK, now you guys have ME looking for one! lol. The G719 and G721 have been mentioned here. There are so many models to choose from. Lots (most?) U.S. places are out of stock on the 2 mentioned. Looks like waiting on that "slow boat" may be the only option. The G719 looks pretty sharp in black. I'm l...

Re: A.G.A. Campolin Manual Lockback

Thank you so much Bill and Tom. You've answered it all for me. I knew it wasn't exactly a "rare" piece, but I had no idea they were still being made to this day. Wow, a $20 knife. Amazing that the materials & construction used to make this $20 knife, aren't used more in today's switchblades. Why use...

Re: A.G.A. Campolin Manual Lockback

They are made exactly like the 1960s knives were made. The Campolin family business (Falcon) made knives for Robert Klaas to sell under their "Kissing Cranes" brand name. I believe the only Falcon knives made for Klaas were the 15" manual stilettos. Thanks Bill. But, shouldn't this piece have eithe...

Thanks Sammy. Minus the button, seems to have all the fine makings of an auto.

A.G.A. Campolin Manual Lockback

Good evening all. I recently obtained this 11" manual lockback and searching the members knowledge about it. Apparently, it's not exactly grabbing a huge audience in the collectors world. Not very valuable (I would guess). But, I was very impressed by the materials used and the overall construction ...

Re: 13.5" Reproduction Frosolone white pearl

Bernie (or anyone), what year would you say this beauty was made in? Were there certain years that Angelo had A.G.A. Campolin stamped along the blade like that?

Re: LATAMA Square Button Switchblade

I'm not sure how the auction site works for sellers as I've never sold. But, why start the bidding price so low below the reserve price? Starting bid $3,500, current bid $3,815 but reserve not met. I'm assuming the reserve must be $4,000(?). Why not just start the bidding at $4,000? Seems to just gi...

Thank you kind Sir Tryker for that clarification. Over the years of collecting them, nobody ever referred to it as that, but 'tis true. I stand corrected.

Re: I'm Doofus E.

Hi Markco..Started collecting Krates a while back. Had over 20 of them at one time. Filled 3 rooms of my house. This 1972 Pea Picker with disc brake ought to bring back some memories. Could post a bunch of pics., but didn't mean to impose on this thread... http://i1152.photobucket.com/albums/p500/J-...

Re: LATAMA Square Button Switchblade

When did it become wrong to try to get the most money you can for something? It will either sell or it won't. ...And, it looks like it sure will! Bid placed with 8 days to go, but the reserve is not met. Good thing I'm too new at collecting. I still like the nice, new shiny ones and too dumb to kno...
