New "BARON"

Post by JulesVane » Mon Jun 01, 2020 10:58 pm

Arrived today. The new Baron from A.G.A. Campolin. An Italian remake of a 1960's French knife (that I do not have to compare). It's a nice, 8" BO/BC.

Nice, so you are happy with it ? I have been procrastinating ever since I came across the announcement.

Just arrived today, but yes. It feels nice and sturdy. Came surprisingly sharp as well.

Nice knife and great horn. Is there a safety on it?

Good question Thom! No safety.

It seems like all the originals I have seen had stag scales. Other than that it looks pretty similar.

Here is an original:

Thanks for that link Jeremy. Interesting..."The button slides back to catch the scale and works as a safety"...Hmmm. I've messed with mine just a bit, but I'm not seeing that on this piece. I've tried sliding it back, but it just eventually fires. I'd like to see that action as maybe I'm doing it wrong(?).

I didn't notice that safety stuff on the original. I don't think your's has that. I also noticed that original on Mike's site is a multi-blade.

One other thing: Can you tell how the rocker is connected to the liner? Does it have anything like D-stamps on it?

Sorry for the delay. No, no safety and no D cutouts. Here's a couple pics...
