Jerry, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have had this early Schrade Fishtail Switchblade for over 50 years. I never used it, just put away. this one and some others will be for sale soon. There is no damage or rust just some dark spots here and there, on this fine knife. It opens quickly without fuss. Beautifully marbled handles
I'm asking $199.00 delivered. Paypal or Money Order.
More vintage switchblades for sale have been added to my store. Click the link below.
Anyone familiar with the Walt's flatguard stilettos? I'm looking for some to add to my collection.
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 .. !!!
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
