Thanks for the info, Clint and JJ.
It is Italian. Look closely to the lock hole in the blade. It is worn which causes the point of the blade to creep out. Keep this hole greased with some kind of lube like graphite or even Vaseline. When releasing the blade you can depress the blade then push the button or push the button very quickly and firmly so the pin does not creep out and wear on the lock hole. Nice looking knife.
looks to be Italian not German and I would agree 1960s .... Cool knife , I like that style of blade. worth a little more than a modern knife similar .
Can anyone provide me with information and values for this knife? I think it was purchased in Germany in the late 1960's. I could not locate a tang stamp or any markings except for Rostfrei (stainless). Any info would be greatly appreciated.
You can. Number one thing cops are stabbed with.....screwdriver.
Can I venture a guess that crime involving those unbanned weapons did not go up?
Last summer Kansas abolished their deadly weapons law and went further in saying no other form of government can pass a law forbidding any weapons. So auto knives are legal in Kansas....as well as sword canes....shotgun canes...blackjacks....etc. Man the Pendulum is swinging from one extreme to the other.
See, it may just be me but I see the tool in the object and the beauty in the tool!
In 1880 this was nothing other than a tool. A way to keep a knife in your pocket when most had to be worn on your side.
I often wondered when this simple tool became a weapon, guess I know now LOL
Great read Jan thanks for digging it up . I guess that fishtail knife was as vicious as it looks LO effin L .....They sure used some strong verbage in describing these easily opened tools of the past . Maybe it was the folding daggers that brought it to the forefront , I mean look at an Italian stiletto and I get it , it was designed for damage but the Schrades etc. were honest user knives ( that`s why I collect them) I guess it had to be anacross the board ban as how would you say " Stilettos are out and Schrades are o.k. .... so all automatics were banned , Silly !!
