Re: Swing arm fired switchblade

Thanks for the post. I had one and ended up selling it. Another one of my stupid mistakes I've made. lol. There are a few people that collected one of every handle material/color. I think there were about a dozen or so types made.

Re: Vintage "Latama" with rare pantograph engraving.

This debate has been going on as long or longer than I have collected knives.

We need to let it go and just appreciate these beautiful old knives. :arrow:

Re: 1930s flat guard purchase.

Are all your cans Flat Top and Cone Top? Were you a member of the B.C.C.A.? About 75% are flat or cone tops. The others are pull-tabs. I was a member in the 1970s and early 80s. Most of them are in storage in my basement. I started in 1972. My BCCA number was 4672. I collected everything but my spe...

Re: 1930s flat guard purchase.

That is a cool back drop. Do you collect beer cans? I started collecting the cans when I was 12 years old in the mid-1970s. There was no internet or computer games, me and my friends looked for them. I only have around 800 left and they are in storage in my basement. Back in the 1930s, the cans wou...

Re: Vintage "Omega" picklock

The Leather Novelty Co. stamps seem to be a bit harder to find. I have a couple with the standard stamp. Jackalope, Can you post what you call the "standard stamp"? I know what you mean, but we have new members who might want to know. Thanks, Peiper The stamp I was referring to is like Salvatore's.

Nice knife. The Leather Novelty Co. stamps seem to be a bit harder to find. I have a couple with the standard stamp. I like the Gothic type font on Jules knife.
