Re: WTB 8 /9 Inch Steel Lined Coricama

Here is the 13” after Tim took it apart and sanded it all
down and buffed it to death. You can see damage and blistering around every pin. A tell tale sign of the it being taken apart.

I’m sure there are examples like that. Someone should do some digging and find out.

Re: Rostfrei Import tang stamp and 1 on back tang

I'm not saying the ones marked "Rostfrei Import" were not sent to Germany- but why mark them with the English "Import?" "Import" in German is also spelled "import" as is it in Dutch. Great to know. Too bad it took three pages of of doubting to figure out the truth. Good thing I had my facts in orde...

Re: Rostfrei Import tang stamp and 1 on back tang

I would imagine I'm a collector, Charley. I have about 500 knives here. I have been collecting knives since before you were born. Why are't all the German stilettos marked "Import?" You know which year I was born? Nice... You tell me...maybe there were laws put in place for time to time. I believe ...

Re: Rostfrei Import tang stamp and 1 on back tang

I have seen several that came from England and Canada marked "Foreign.". I'm not saying the ones marked "Rostfrei Import" were not sent to Germany- but why mark them with the English "Import?" And, why are so many knives that were obviously imported to Germany NOT marked "Import?" Many say Rostfrei...

Nice. I found an 11” B Svoboda last night. Nice colored black and old yellowed colors.

Last night I also scored a very rare 12cm flat guard wasp. 😍 it was super expensive but well worth it.
