I just remembered there was someone who customized Italians with ivory and ruby buttons. Some of those ones had the solid step bolsters like yours has. I can't remember the guy's name though. That kinda' sounds like Slo-Joe(?), but wasn't there someone that did a lot of skull buttons? But, I guess ...
Just wondering if the pics might give a clue to the mystery mangler who did this piece? It's 7.5" OAL, blade stamped Frank B over ITALY. Appears the bolsters are soldered to the liners(?).
