Tobias Gibson replied to Jack Haskins, Jr.'s discussion Where did the "patterns" come from?
"Of interest while everyone today seems to call the larger 5 inch toothpicks " toothpick" or "fish knife", Camillus originally called their knife a Switchback and described it as a folding bird and trout knife."

Tobias Gibson replied to Jack Haskins, Jr.'s discussion Where did the "patterns" come from?
"I really can't say 100% but the toothpick appears to be much older than the 1800s and could very well be of Spanish or Italian origin. It definitely resembles the old Navaja de Muelle out of Spain as well as the Italian Romano. In which case…"

"I don't think 1095 is that bad at edge retention but in a carbon steel I'd much rather see 52100.  However, for everyday carry I'd much rather have a stainless blade.  440C is better than the junk 420 and AUS6 that a lot of…"

Hi Jack,

   I see where you are directing folks to: caddyman1973@gmail.com for stiddys.  I have one I found on ebay, but what I need is a slackner, or information on where to find one.  If most folks make them, I could use some info on doing that.  Material to use, what thickness? do guys use more than one thickness?  Also, when shearing the pins of a folder, what's the best type of knife or blade to use?  Is there a real good you tube video I should look at?  Can a person shear stainless pins, or do you just punch them through?  I've sent you a friend request because you seem knowledgeable about folder repair.  Hope we can share ideas and information. 

Mike.
