Rare Douris Chastel Le Superoto, Out The Front (OTF) Switchblade Knife Variation, France, Unused. This is a 1960's Le Superoto variation with a shorter spear point blade that is marked ROSTFREI. The handle sides also have a different design than the normal longer model. I believe it was made for the German market since they used to have shorter blade length requirements there. I searched and could not find another model with the same blade style or shorter length. I also asked several friends who are switchblade collectors, some with several versions of the Le Superoto and none had seen this variation. 

It's a very interesting design with a lever that allows the blade to be tightened when extended to remove blade play. The lever on this one is made of steel, later models were plastic. Here's a link for additional information on this model - https://www.talkblade.info/viewtopic.php?t=24424.  

 

I HAVE A VIDEO SHOWING CONDITION AVAILABLE BY TEXT @ (3 ZERO 3) - 5 FOUR 9 - 1 4 1 9. 

 

- Knife is unused. The blade has light firing marks from opening and closing. Also has a blade mark where I think the locking lever would meet the blade when the blade is closed. I don't see any other condition issues. Please see the pictures as they represent the condition accurately. Picture note - I took two pictures of each side of the blade because it's so shiny it's hard to get a good picture. 

- Functions great, fires strong and locks up with very little blade play. The knife has a lever on top of the handle near the opening to tighten the blade lockup when it's extended. 

- Approximately 8 inch total length with blade extended, approximately 3 1/4 inch blade. 

- Knife only.

 

CASH OFFERS ALWAYS CONSIDERED 

 

SHIPPING: I normally ship using USPS Ground Advantage in a box. I sometimes use USPS Priority for heavier or expensive knives. On orders over $400 I ship with signature required at delivery. NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING without contacting me first please!

 

WANT LIST: I do my best to maintain an inventory of interesting, unique and hard to find knives. I'm always looking for single pieces and collections. My current switchblade focus includes Miniature & Keychain, Vintage Imports from Spain, France & Japan, RPK's, Rizzuto's, older Microtechs and some other 90's-2000's American Switchblades and I'm starting to get into pre-ban American switchblades. I also like interesting miniature knives and arms, 1980's Import Balisongs and older Great Eastern Cutlery folders. 

 

ABOUT: I'm an US Army Veteran that became a big pocket knife user while I was on active duty in Panama. Back then my goto was always a Spyderco since I grew up in Colorado. In 2010 I started collecting knives and in 2021 I decided to go all in and became a dealer. I love the gig however it's a lot of work for a one man show. I spend my days buying, selling and sometimes trading knives. I also travel to knife and gun shows regularly, walking up and down aisle's looking for cool stuff to offer to my customers and the online world. 

I've met a lot of great people along my dealer journey. I've also realised there's a lot of sharks out there in the knife world. The honest ones are fine, it's the dishonest ones that suck. I've been ripped of and scammed many more times as a dealer than I ever was as a collector. I guess it's a volume deal. I'm buying and selling way more knives than I ever did as a collector. 

In my listings I always do my best to give accurate information about the knives I'm selling including what it is and the condition. I take lots of pictures showing as much of the knives as possible and offer video's for all the switchblades and some of the other knives I list. I research sale prices and other available information on all my knives. I also have a great network of other dealers and collectors to get information and opinions from. All that said, I still make mistakes so please let me know if something I say is innacurate or misleading.
