That's certainly an unusual, unusually beautiful knife you got there, D ale! 

From a purely aesthetic perspective, this picture really epitomizes WHY I love and collect knives...

The mating of wood with steel to form such an exquisite piece of functional art is expressed so perfectly in your new knife. I absolutely love it!

Congratulations, D ale! Enjoy your new knife in good health, my friend!

Picked up a new one today ...Leverlock design.

Laminated blade steel.

This steel holds a good edge.

An attractive and functional knife.

As a locking mechanism .. I've formed a fondness for the leverlock design.

Maniago made, classic "transitional" stiletto. NS bolsters Two piece spring, swivel bolster, flat ground blade. Late 1950s to early 1970s.

What's this knife I bought from Portugal.

13 1/4", 5.2mm backspring, India stag scales are almost 1 inch wide. A really hefty knife. The tang punch says "IN0X" over

                                                "9".

Can anyone nail this one down?
