Re: Is this a pocket butter knife? What is this?

The blade is a bowl reamer,the punch is a stem reamer,the disk at the end is a tamper. It may still smell like somebody's pipe.

Re: Auto button change

Stainless steel should come apart without incident.,super glue will not hold metal parts together.It would help if you could post pics of the knife.

Re: Auto button change

All you need is access to a competent welder with a lathe.,turn your stud down and weld a stainless allen head in its place. Or start from scratch and turn a new stud and rotabroach an allen head into it thus saving the original part.

Re: Experiments in Patinas....

Ferrous metals such as carbon steel knives can be blued to varying degrees from light blue to almost black by packing in fresh cut oak sawdust. Any brass fittings or embellishments if polished will turn a literal rainbow of colors. Sap content and exposure time will determine the degree of color. Wh...

I've been buying online for 20+ years and have yet to be ripped off. As many scammers as there are out there,I've found they are far outnumbered by honest people just trying to make a living.

Re: are bobc mechanisms difficult

I know this is an old post but,,,every one of these that I've worked on the corners were worn off the sear. The blades tend to hold their shape as they are harder metal. Remove switch,weld up and re-shape the sear,or just fabricate a new one. If you're a capable welder the total cost is maybe two do...

Re: What causes this?

I think if it were mine I would fix it before the sear wears from not being fully engaged into the blade. I will reserve comment as to what I suspect is the root cause.

Cut and grind from a discarded circular saw blade. Sawzall blades work for the smaller knives.,chime rods from junk clocks,all make fair to good spring stock.

Re: Who made it? Japan?

Leave the small slab pins in place.,the three larger "through pins" are all that you need to remove to separate the two sides allowing access to the blade,back and spring.

Re: First Automatic Knife

Auto or not, Kershaw is a good choice. My 1035 moose hunter has been probably the hardest working knife I've ever owned.Oh,and yes I also have a launch 1,seems to be a very stout knife but I've done no rigorous test.,though I'm certain it would hold up well.

I'm just saying if you just obtained it and your intention is to flip it,flip it as found.it is worth more to some people that way,myself included.Another week without oil will not cause it to immediately self destruct.People have their own preferences when it comes to things like oil and cleaning.A...

Re: Pivot Pin Metal Choice in Switchblades

If you want to suffer accelerated wear,use brass. It makes for a very poor bearing surface as it is nonporous and "wipes away" lubrication and suffers corrosion in the form of dezincification. If you've ever stored a brass knife in a sheath and came back to find it has turned green you'll ...
