 Swinguard Stiletto Knife Rare Italian Style Automatic - Buffalo Horn 440C

Leaf-Spring opening. Some pieces are quite strong, but some may need to be held firmly to lock. A leaf-spring uses stored potential energy, like a grass-hopper. Kicking against the sturdy ground, it can jump very high.... but kicking in the air, doesn't work too well. This same concept applies... brace the bottom of the handle against your palm with a firm grip. This provides a base for the spring to kick against. 

PRO TIP: Rotate your wrist to a palm-up position, and even a weaker spring will still lock when held properly.

Bone handle

Very nice knife. A little slow when I first tried it. Two drops of tuff glide took care of that. Very fond of the tear drop damascus.

Italian Stilleto

Knife arrived well packaged. Very nice knife for the money. As a collector it's always nice to get great knives for a decent price. Could be more sharp though. But since I'm not gonna use it, as it's just for my collection it's fine. I do recommend storing these in the open position in the safe, as the springs are under great tension if the knife is closed for extended periods of time.

Swinguard stilleto buffalo horn 440c

This is a very well made and well-balanced knife. It is by far my favorite. I can't say enough good things about it. If you're thinking about purchasing it I recommend that you do. You won't regret it.
