Re: "The Toy That Kills" article - 1950

Amen from me as well button_man. My parents lived through the depression and I'm a "boomer". As a kid growing up it was natural (at least it was for me) to focus on the things I didn't have, like switchblades. One big thing I did have but didn't really appreciate at the time was loving parents who i...

Re: New Hubertus/Otter lever lock dissected.

I have to wonder whether turning a lemon into lemonade applies here - that knife looks fantastic.

Re: Fixing warped horn

Thanks -yes, minor warping, I remember wrapping the knife in several layers of terrycloth to prevent damage from the clamp. I remember it worked very well for a much worse case, and I truly hope it works for the person with the knife (not me).

Thanks again,

Fixing warped horn

Hi Bill, Some years ago you advised me on a fix for warped horn that worked great. I remember wrapping the knife with terrycloth, applying a C-clamp and putting the knife in the oven at some temperature for some time. What I don't remember are the temperature and time. Can you help? (I'll save the j...

Re: Identifiers for a "Super Automatic"

button_man, No need to be concerned discussing knives "that probably seem unimportant". The title of this forum section is "switchblade knives". and you brought up a discussion about switchblades. There has been considerable interest and information in this thread which confirms the interest in the ...

Re: Hubertus lever

A tang stamped Hubie (1955-1972 according to credible research) in fine shape with great stag. Now that is what I like!

Re: 7'' BEDIMA Picklock

Thanks for sharing that classic Luke, I like you point about not rare tang stamps, but of course that doesn't exactly pertain to your knife. I have seen the stamp before in photos but don't think I have ever held one, let alone owned one. It is always nice to see a stamp that we don't often see. Jim

All are outstanding examples, thanks for sharing.
