Nic link, Jan
!! . Thank you . !!.I've a fondness for autos & have representative samples of most approaches to auto locking systems.
While buttonlocks are really cool .. and I've a few of them .. I've had every one I own open accidentally at some point .. i.e. when not intended too.
I've grown to appreciate the leverlock for it's comparative SAFE locking system.
!!! .. Nice article .. !!!
Knife Magazine May 2016 !!
Jan in Germany and Italy where autos are legal, these are common. In the past I have had several lever-locks which were 12/16 ga pullers. They are not my favorite so they went in a trade to a straight lever-lock. Great topic Jan....great web site.
I have seen multiple types of shell pullers but i have never seen them as lever locks
Thanks for posting that link, Jan. While I'm not a shooter I am nonetheless a man who admires a beautiful stag handle knife. And, good lord! That blog certainly has some gorgeous examples of stag handled knives that were designed with a specific purpose in mind - To extract shotgun shells.
I enjoyed looking at all of the pictures as well as reading some really interesting information about the history of those knives. Good Stuff!
A member sent me a link today that I wanted to share with you, It has some amazing information! http://thebladeblog-ulf.blogspot.nl/
Hello All .. glad to be a member of the switchblade group. I look forward to learning from the experts here and displaying some pictures of my small collection (working on my photography technique)
Glad it's working again for you, John.
A little light oil (3 in one ..or.. sewing machine oil ..or.. equivalent) is certainly suggested / required at this point. I'd stick to a light oil .. a high quality sewing machine oil works great !!
I am glad you solved this problem and that we could help. Remember WD40 is a penetrating substance which does repel water...as does oil but is not a great lubricant. So keep and eye on the action. One drop of oil on the locking points, both open and closed, will prevent the wearing of the release point/s. Remember, cut long, deep and continuous.
