Way to go, Theo, you pulled a fifteen year old thread out of the cobwebs and gave us another chance to show off our switchblades. ::ds::
Nice knives, by the way. ::tu::

Nice looking knives, Samb. ::tu::

Here is a stout and highly active Pro Tech.

That's a nice one! That one is on my list, I have a couple of ganzo's that were copied after your Protech and I was really impressed with them. I'm sure they're nothing like the real thing though.

Great ProTech Joe! I own a "Godfather" and an original "Don" and I'm most impressed with both knives. I don't recall which model your knife is...? Thx! 8)

Thanks Marc.
I believe the box refers to it as a "Tactical Response 4".

Cool knives Sam! My Godfather is configured the same as your Godson, only longer! If you keep up this pace, you'll have the entire Launch line in no time! And whatever way you're posting your pictures it's working perfectly, right down to the double-click to enlarge them! 8)

Had a little trouble and don't know how they posted twice. Had those for quite awhile, got them for around $18 each and the same quality as the Kal 74's. Really nice knives, solid, tight and the open quick.

Very cool autos Sam! It's kindda funny, I was looking at a champagne/satin Boker, the 2nd one in your picture, yesterday at a Canadian knife store and in the description, it clearly stated "Not Automatic", but I was considering ordering one and installing a coil-spring myself cuz it had the button installed already, but when I thought about all the trouble it would be to find the correct spring, I decided against it. If I really want one, I can get them at DHGate or AliExpress. I like your cheapos too, they're cool to fire, and you needn't worry about breaking them! Keep em' comin' buddy! 8)

I am having so much fun looking forward to seeing what knives you post each day Sam, thanks! I've been watching the Kal-47's with the blue, lime-green, and etched blades cuz they really caught my eye, and hopefully I'll be able to acquire a copy one day. The Italians you kept are gorgeous! The top knife definitely looks like a Straydog mod...yes? I love the Maltese bolsters and fileworked liners and button! Could you tell us about the 3rd knife down with brown covers? ::shrug:: Great showing buddy! 8) EDIT: Never mind about the 3rd knife, I just saw the Frank B stamp and realized it's a Stealth model! Very cool! 8)

3rd down is a frank beltrame b stealth, another Straydog. Milled out the Handel's and made some wood scales for it, plenty sharp too. Don't think they are being made anymore. Doesn't crack like the launch 8 but it's still opens pretty quick. I'll post some Ganzo's tomorrow.

Well, you know I like Ganzos bud, and even the orange covers hold a certain appeal! Cool knives Sam! I see you solved the double picture problem too, way to go! 8)
