    Viper Knives Turn. Made in Italy.

    Bolsters and liners are one piece titanium on each side. Poplar wood scales. Bearings in pivot.
    Flickable if that matters but I prefer to walk it out at this point. Came with a leather slip.

    Blade says M390 near hilt. That is popular in the nicer Italian knives.

    She's a beauty! :thumbup:

    Is it currently available, and -- not to be gauche -- but what's the price point?

    Oops -- never mind... I just got off my lazy butt and looked it up. :)

    Yep, M390.
    Yes sir you can find them. There are many different versions though I don’t like the ones that have a clip based purely on the clip design.

    Prices range between $205-$250.

    I have a lot of frame lock flippers, and love them, but I was craving something different and classy.

    After handling on that belongs to a fellow THR member, I ordered my own kershaw 3655.
    I expect it to make a great work knife.

    Case Stockman in S35VN with amber bone jigged scales. It came with poorly sharpened blades including uneven bevels and burrs on all three blades. It’s a good looking knife and I have the blades all ready to go.

    Older case knive always came shaving sharp but the 2 new knives I have bought both had issues and were not sharp. Quality gone down hill. The blades do still hold an edge but it is time consuming getting them that way by hand.

    Modified Spidey holes on a Case, who ever would have thought?

    Nice knife, good luck with it.

    While Spyderco's trademark hole may have folks think all holes in blades are derivative of the SpydieHole. If you can't open it like a SpyieHole it's just some other thang. There have been plenty of half, elliptical, oval, and even triangular holes put in blades since Sal put a hole in the Worker...opening the door to all sorts of openings, but reserving the best for Spyderco.

    My new favorite combo Hollowvex Plainsmen La Kukrita and Scandi PSK satellite in AEB-L. Need to wipe it down with some WD-40 to even out the micarta colors.

    Modern take on the classic Khukri with the small accessory knife and steel:

    Shaving sharp! Whoever owned it knew how to sharpen a knife. I have 3 of the newer Mora knives and like them and have always wanted one of the older ones with anice birch handle.

    I just received a Joker Trampero with olive wood handle. Knife and sheath are very basic, but I am the simple kind of man Lynyrd Skynyrd sang about. I will try to post a pic with some of my wood handled knives one of these days. Meanwhile, a stock image: joker-knives-co113.png

    The through holes are much easier to open. Love them!

    My buddy Trevor at TWSKnives.com smithed me up this 80CRV2 set most recently. I haven’t used them on flesh yet, but a skinner he made for PVW over at western hunter did 3+ animals before it’s edge needed attention. 9C8A2310-4E1B-48C3-B8C4-49B3B7DAC244.jpeg

    I really like this one!
    It reminds me of the unfinished kit I have in a box..... 20220325_195656.jpg

    I built a knife from one of those Dexter-Russell blanks I bought from Indian Ridge Traders many years ago. Sold at a gun show. It was described as a mountain man knife, IIRC.

    Never thought of olive wood as pretty but that handle is gorgeous.

    My specimen is quite similar, and sports a very pleasing matte finish that lets me feel the warmth of the wood. I was impressed with the fit and finish of the knife.
