one says milano on the blade and the other says rostfrei ,these have been in the family at least 23 years, they belonged to my now wifes father .
you can look but they are not for sale
i store them with the blades open so there is no pressure on the springs.

i would say these are swivel bolster as you rock the bolster to unlock the blade

Yep....they are swivel bolster.
The green one is prolly the milano and the red one is prolly the rostfrei...rostfrei=rust free....which mean stainless steel.....60s/70s vintage I'd say.:)

blades and such

Scout, I used to live in the Vampire State until my mental illness went away and I moved here - Kentucky. Unlike NY and Calipornia we have extremely comfortable weapons laws here. CCDW license is mighty easy to get and we are a "shall issue" state. I worked darned hard to help get that passed in 1996. With a ccdw license here, we can carry swithcblades. I almost always wear two guns and two blades for social purposes.

I keep buying many cheap, Chinese switchblades at flea markets here just because they fascinate me. I guess you could say I "collect" them, but at anywhere from $3.50 to $10 each, they're far from "collectable"! Probably have 30 now. They do all seem to work, though, and some are pretty fast and pretty sturdy. Just a lot of fun. Stainless with plastic scales, ugly, but they'd work for the single time they'd have to.

I carried a thermoplastic "credit card" knife for a long time and I still have it, "somewhere". It was just one piece with a sharp corner between two sharpened edges.I carried it through many a metal detector over the years. I also have and regularly carry zytel knives like "executive letter openers" and "delta darts". Never been "made" for one. Don't try that trick through TSA, though, because the milimeter wave scanners will see them and of course a pat-down will likely find them.

Long ago, Vietnam era, I used to sand two adjacent edges of my credit cards to a sharp edge and sharp corner. I still do that and no one has even checked my wallet to look at the cards. Or they didn't know what they were looking at. Sharpened that way, with "fresh" edges, they will easy slash into a pork or beef roast with a quick slash, so I'd guess they'd make it through other skin and flesh. I did a couple of these for my traveling daughter who has been through TSA and foreign inspections and never been made.

I wouldn't even VISIT Cal even to collect a lottery prize! I do miss a few things from the western NY area where I lived, not the least is being in the same town as Kabar and Alcaz, and twenty miles from either Ontario Knife or Case.

My "screen name" Forty Fiver is for the Lightweight Commander that goes everywhere my navel goes. BTW: If you visit the Bluegrass State and have a cwl from your home state, it's accepted here as if it was ours.
