Just Picked These Up

Post by johns7076 » Tue Oct 26, 2021 6:09 pm

Got these a few weeks ago at an antique gun show. The shell puller appears to be very old, another collector said it's Italian. The kriss blade has no marks other than PATENT 35958. Searched the internet and found some info that suggests it was made by Elio Debin around 1950. Would appreciate any input from contributors to this site.

::welcome:: to AAPK John! ::handshake:: I can't help with the identification of your knives, although, I do wanna say that your shell-puller looks to be a Latama, but Bill De Shivs is a member here and he will eventually see your post and will likely be able to help. I'm sure you know who Bill is, but just in case, he's the designer of the "LEVERLETTO" knife, and he checks in here regularly, so be patient! 8)

The shell puller is Italian. It could have been made by any of several makers. I agree that it is a 1950s knife.

Is that a USA Patent number? Someone around here knew how to look up Patent numbers.

The patent number is the Italian number for the kris blade.
