Gimel-Bargeons with filework and a Korean swinguard

Postby TnqCmdr74_78 » Tue Apr 02, 2019 7:33 pm

Just a few of my Switches I’ve collected that I will soon put up for sale. I went through a phase where I fileworked anything that moved, so you’ll see filework on the French knives.
The Bargeons fire very very quickly and lock up tight. The Korean ‘Rizzuto style’ I sent home from Korea in 1978 and its remained in the original box (albeit written on by me ::facepalm:: ), but appears unblemished with minimal wear marks from opening/closing.

I love the mechanics behind the artisan’s tuning of a Switchblade. I’ll soon part with these and others in the very near future as I bring them out of storage. I mainly collected modern Italian bolster releases and a few swinguards in all sizes. Thanks for looking and commenting !

Those Rizzys are going for some good money on the auctions.
