Re: Mangler I.D.?

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 ...

Thanks Jeremy! That's a great start. I would have never even guessed by the bolsters myself.

Mangler I.D.?

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(?). It's a fun little knife. Does anyone recognize who may have done it? Maybe the skull button or filework style l...

Re: Strange Picklock

I've got a beautiful 6.25" Omega Import Co. picklock that I love in every way *except*, has the similar issue of someone attempting to butcher nail nicks in both sides of the blade! Gee, they couldn't have at least picked only ONE side!? But, I love the little buggar anyway! https://i.imgur.com/oPKv...

Re: 712R Value

I “think” I read that Boker dropped the “R” in 1980-82. As far as I know, this is the older blade etch. I’ve seen asking prices between $225 and $400. (I think Latham’s has one now for $400). So, I’d sure like to learn as well. Great looking knife! *Edit* Actually just looked at the one on Latham’s....

Wow! That Bat Cave is getting crowded. Those monsters really take up some display case real estate. Beautiful collection Jason!

Re: I found an elusive stamp yesterday

Latham’s has had two different 11” Panamex models on his site for sale for a while. Certainly out there.

Re: WTB ? Falcon manual swinguard.

That’s good info Tom. I wasn’t aware of the 70’s and 90’s with and without the medallion. I do have one with the medallion, so now I know it’s from the 90’s. You mentioned the one that sold was an older model, but it too had the medallion. Were the 70’s models tang stamped instead?
