Do they make two side-by-side backsprings? I have seen that on some vintage American bo/cs but I can't remember if Mikovs or Medicis had one or two.

Are your Medicis the ones with the slightly diagonal Rostfrei stamp?

No sir. Block letters that r left to right on back tang. No angle. There is a blank oval positioned above center the word ROSTFREI. No front tang stamp.

That Medici is one of the better ones. I hadn't realized any of those ones had the two kicksprings.
