A really cool old-time friction folder with a wicked can opener. Not the shoddy shit that you often nowadays see but a pocket knife made to be used. These have been abandoned in some sort of a gloomy warehouse, so they are a bit rusty and stiff. A little bit of steel wool or very fine sandpaper, and oil, and they will be real purdy indeed.

Features

For a mass-produced army tool, this is quite a cute little folding knife, Italians sure know how to design pretty things. What is also surprising is that the two moving parts (the knife and the can opener) are of pretty decent quality, although stiff. When you open them, they don’t lock in place but they sort of click, meaning that they aren’t wobbly in any way either. The grips are black, textured plastic or bakelite

For some cosmic reason, the knife tip is rounded like a butter knife, because apparently soldiers aren’t fit to handle anything pointy. So, the scary-looking can opener is more dangerous, and an unskilled person can do some nasty damage to everything but cans with it.

Closed length c. 11 cm (4.3”), including the loop. The blades are c. 6 cm (2.4”) .

Condition

Just like all good Italian war gear, these are unissued. Although with these you should think of unissued as used since these have been warehoused rather roughly. So, they can be grimy and a bit rusty. The blade opening is also as stiff as the behavior of government employees. But unlike the latter, you can make it quite nice with oil.

Veitsifoorumeilta ongittujen tietojen perusteella nämä saattavat olla ww2 aikaista Sheffield brittituotantoa. Kun sodan jälkeen britti asevoimat eivät ole näitä enää tilanneet on varastoja myyty milloin minnekin ja tässä tapauksessa Italiaan. Tämän vuoksi terästä löytyy "Visconti" teksti. Tämä näkyy joissain veitsissä himmeänä koska stanssaus on tehty jo karkaistuihin teriin. Veitsissä on ollut alunperin vielä malspiikki selkäpuolella , joka on sitten jostain syystä pois höylätty. Eli lyhyesti sanottuna jämäkkä historiallinen linkkuveitsi jossa on kerrankin kunnon hiiliteräs terä jonka saa pelottavan teräväksi

Erinomaisen hyvä veitsi, terän saa todella teroitettua teräväksi ja kun varastorasvat on liotellut ja saanut vaihdettua notkeampiin, toimii kuin unelma. Ja hinta on kohdallaan.

Great little knife, lots of traditional style, solidly made & very reminiscent of British WW1 & 2 issue knives.

No maker marks.
Blade unsharpened, but easy enough to put your preferred grind/bevel on it.

VERY gummed up & stiff when received - due to old dried grease, etc.
Quickly cleaned up with a green scouring pad & a couple of drops of gun oil had the hinges smooth as butter. No doubt thess will ease more with use.

Will be back for more if they're ever re-stocked, as they'd make great little gifts for folk that appreciate a well made knife.

Perfect for re-enactors as they could pass for older wartime knives.
