Re: What is Likely Origin of This Automatic?

Definetly a Jindiana Pattada with faux ivory scales. I have one. Look at the tang marking. Triangle shaped Indian head with word extra below. These knives come in at least 3 sizes in stag, horn, faux ivory and different color plastic scales. Very unusual knives. And Italian.

Over oiling a knife

Can over oiling a knife cause it to not open fully and lock up? I oiled a rather inexpensive knife with Ballistol and now it doesn't open fully all the time ? Am curious if oiling a knife can do more harm than good?

Re: Vendetta Corsa auto

Yes, the vendettas where made by the french and italians. The italian model has bolsters the french none just black scales. Some models deem to have the etched blade and others not. But they are still vendettas. This is the best info I have. Rob

Re: CHRONOLOGICAL LIST of switchblades in movies

Didn't see West Side Story in your list. Movie has a classic switchblade knife fight! Think it was released in 1960. Broadway show 1957?
