Hello Everyone,
I've been into knives ever since I can remember. I was 4 when I can recall playing with my mom's key chain knife. I bought my 1st knife when I was 5 or 6 years old. Bazooka Bubble Gum offered a knife for .10 cents. I filled out the form mailed it with my dime and it arrived in the mail. It had blue scales and a cool blade. It was maybe 5" open. Fastforward to today I collect mostly Italian Stilettos in various styles. The classic picklock, swivel bolster, lock back, leverlock, OTF, Bolster relelase, BO/BC. Most of my knives are new I own several vintage knives. I need to grow my vintage collection. I also enjoy mangling. I have been customizing knives for just over a year. If you have any questions for me please send me a pm or post them here.
Here's a photo of my newest knife. It is 33 cm made by Renzo Pascotto. This knife is called "The Delta" the shape of then button, safety and lock tab is a Delta, it is number 1 of 5, Pick Lock Style, Weights 12 ounces, Fires like a Rocket, Locks Up like a Bank Valut, Old Sambar Stag, Solid Nickel Silver Bolsters, Button and Safety, Brass Liners:
I hope you like it. It's an awesome knife.
Sincerely,
John

Welcome Stilettos are my favorite switchblade style. I just can't afford a good quality one... yet. My favorite is probably a bolster release. Something so simple yet beautiful about stilettos. Brings nostalgia and a rebellious attitude to mind.

Hello RNN,
I hope you don't mind, but if you do just say so; I shortened your name to RNN.
The swivel bolster was a great invention. No more broken nails or sore fingers. There are ways to make hard to release pick lock close, but it requires skill and the removal of metal. I'd like to recommend two makers of stilettos to you. Frank Beltrame and AGA Campolin three are two very well know craftsman who make some of the best Italian Stilettos. There are age restictions so before you buy check with your state laws.
It's true these knives have an appeal all their own.
Thank you for your friendly welcome.
John

Lol age restrictions and I'm in Indiana Rolling Eyes It's not illegal if you don't get caught, right? What about AKC? Are they good? They are a bit cheaper than a FB, but you get what you pay for. I live on a farm and have owned knives since before kindergarten, sorta like you I guess. My dad usually signs the order form for me. Very Happy He doesn't care, just says its my money. In fact, he his edc is a switchblade.

Hello RNN,
AKC is owned by the Camploin family as well as Falcon Kmives their non auto knives. If you're looking for a high end stiletto check out Due Buoi; they start at $240.00, but they are 99.999999999% perfect. I have the Thorn; it's wicked cool! They do have a low end model. It cost $79.00; I just bought one a few days ago I'm thinking it must be as good as or better than any mass manufactured production model made by Frank B or Campolin or SKM. Their's a bill in your state sponsored by you senator to amend the knife laws in your state. Check this out kniferights. org. I live in MA. The knife laws here are bad too.
What type of knife does your Dad carry? What's you favorite knife or knives? My wish list has a Burm and a Havlin on it.
Talk to later your new friend,
John

Thanks for all the answers. Just one mor question. Do you recommend I spend $50 on a FB, or get a Mikov kit? I would think the Mikov with its wider blade would work better for edc on the farm. I have made knife handles before on fixed blades and folding knives, so I know I'm capable of doing it. I'm leaning more towards the Mikov since it will mean more to me if I put it together. Dad carries a Chinese made scale release my friend and I got at the fair a couple of years ago. Dad wore out the stainless blade so I made a new one out of a hand plane blade. Take care, Keith

Hi Keith,
I have assemble many Mikvos. I love the knife. It's well made and an excellent worker knife. The Italian Stiletto's are not the best worker type knife. Go with the Mikov Kit. Tell David hello from me; he's a really cool guy. This is his website: mikovknives. You send payment by PayPal. He ships same or next day by registered mail; you'll have to sign for the package or go pick it up at the PO. I usually takes about 8 to 10 days for the package to arrive. The blade are 100% dull; you'll have to sharpen it. I like the clip point blade, but it's my personal preference. The dagger blade is awesome too. Here are a few that I put together.
This was my first one:
MOP with my first time doing any file work on the spring:

Buffalo with Bark still on the horn:

Camel Bone with exposed spring:

I've done Ram's horn and jigged buffalo to look like Impala.
Go with the Mikov.
Italian stiletto's make great show pieces and the look cool when you cut your apple or other fruit; I don't recommend them as a working mans knife.
Let me know what you decide and don't for get to show me a photo of the one you choose. I love photo's.
Take care,
John

I think I'm going to get a Mikov kit. Probably from here http://www.pvk.com/webcat/MikovAutoDaggerKit.shtml
Curly maple handles. Should I get that or spend the extra $ to get one from Mikovknives?

Hi Keith,
Josh at PVK is another good guy to do business with. He stands behind his products. The good thing is he's here in the USA. His place of business is in MA about 100 miles from my home. I have purchased kits from PVK and other knives. The cost is the same from David or Josh. The only difference is the color of the metal used to move the lever up and down. PVK is blue and Mikov from Europe is highly mirror polished stainless. The other reason to buy from Mikov direct is the selection. PVK only has that one style. If you plan to expose the spring the get it from Europe; if not, get it from PVK. You'll get it faster, you won't have to sign for it, shipping is less expensive and the quality is exactly the same. Are the scales pre-cut? You can get them pre-cut and that saves a lot of time, but I like to make my own. I have a lot of fun making the handles and I can customize my knife with any kind of handle. You can make your handle from wood you already have at home or if you have cow horns you can flatten them and make your own horn handle. Do you hunt? Do you have any deer horn? Stag handles look awesome on a Mikov. They look awesome on any knife. I buy all of my scale material. There are a lot of places on line to buy all kinds of knife making supplies.
If you have any questions please ask away. If I can help, I will.
Oh, the blade from PVK is dull you'll have to sharpen it too. I suggest to build the knife first and then put the edge on the blade.
Take you soon,
John

Hi Keith,
I forgot to mention some of the lever's spring will be exposed. You have to cut some of the scale material away. It's just how it is. The blue really isn't bad. It's a matter of personal taste.

I plan on following this build-a-long. Are you a member of SharperDeal? I already have some curly maple so thats what I'm going to use. If you stain curly maple a very light brown, almost tan, it really brings out the waves. My dad has a Lansky sharpener so I'm set for that. As for waiting to sharpen until the knife is done, I have found that out the hard way with homemade knives. Thanks for the advice. Later, Keith

Hello Keith,
Yes, I am a member of SharperDeals and TalkBlade and a few others. Eastcostsniper on TB or Kruznn on SD has some great tutorials you should check them out.
I can't wait to see your finished knife.
Like I said before, if I can be of any help let me know,
John

How do you go about the pivot pin? Do you slowly peen it until the blade is as tight as possible without slowing down the opening? Or is it just a pressure fit? I thought I read somewhere that the pivot pin is so tight in the holes in the bolsters that you must taper the pin just to get it in there. I want to know everything before I even attempt to make one of these. Thanks, Keith

Hello Keith,
It's not a pressure fit you'll have to pein it.
I just started doing this procedure that I'm about to explain. Before I would insert the pin into the pivot hole and pein both sides, front and back, very carefully.
Now, I pein one end of the pin before I put it in the pivot hole. First, I file it to a point and then with my 2 ounce Ball Pein hammer. I use a 2 ounce hammer for a few reasons, 1. a professional suggested it, 2. the head is small, so there is less chance of doing damage to your knife, and 3. it's not heavy, a large heavy hammer can do some serious damage if you should miss. If you don't have a two ounce hammer. I suggest buying one. You can get an inexpensive hammer for under $5.00 plus shipping at Otto Frei Part No.: 137.112 this is the one I use and it's awesome. I gently tap tap tap tap tap till I have a nice round head. Then, I gently file it to make it smooth so it looks good. I try to get rid of any rough edges. Next, I insert the pin with the peined end into the lever side of the Mikov. There isn't much space to pein the pin on the lever side and since it is the front of the knife I want it to look its best. Next, I cut it down so that is no more than a 1/16 of and inch on the back side. I file it to a point and then with my 2 ounce Ball Pein hammer I gently tap tap tap tap tap till I have a nice round head or something that looks good. Sometimes I can't get it round, so I leave well enough alone. Every time I try to make it better I mess it up. You don't have much space to pein. There's the ridge of the bolster and I try not to hit it so I tap slowly and gently. I also, tape the bolster to help protect it from scratches. I use a thick duct tape. I cut a small hole so I can see the pin. In fact I use masking tape on the blade to protect it. You'll want pivot pin tight, but obviously not too tight because it will interfere with the opening of the knife. Too loose and the blade will move left to right and you want to avoid that too. If it's loose gently tap some more. I stop and check many times this method will almost always prevent peining your pin to tightly, but if you do over pein and the blade will not open first oil the blade and pivot pin or use some type of grease work it in and that should do it. If oil/grease doesn't work take a flat/slotted screw driver and very very gently put as close as you can to the pivot pin and twist ever so gently. You may want to use some tape on the screw driver to help prevent scratches. Fire the knife if works fine leave it alone. If not, twist again very very gently till it works like it should.
I am recommending you to visit this website knife101 the address is: forums.delphiforums.com/Knife101 and ask Bill DeShivs the same question and see what he recommends. I would simply say that you are assembling a Mikov kit and would like his advice on peining the pivot pin. Bill is a highly skilled craftsman with many years of experience. Ask as many questions as you like till you're satisfied. Bill also has a website BillDeShivs.com check it out. Bill repairs all of my knives and I just had him customize a Leverletto kit for me. I told him what I wanted Sterling Silver Shell Lever and Bolster with Abalone scales and he did it. Bill is the inventor/designer of the Leverletto. They are made by the Campolin family. Heres a few photos of my custom Leverletto:










Some additional advice: work slowly. Do not rush your project. Stop when your tired. If things aren't working out stop rest go back to it another day. Be very very patient. And work slowly. Do not rush your project. Stop when your tired. If things aren't working out stop rest go back to it another day. Be very very patient. I have messed up more times than I care to admit for not following my own advice.

Let me know what Bill suggests.
Good luck and talk to you soon,
John

Thanks for the advice... again. Very Happy I had read to use a flat end punch to pein the second side, but that would require someone hold the knife for me. I saw that leverletto on SD, but I had no idea you were the proud owner. Lucky man. I'm not a member of the knife101 forums, so do you think I could just pm him on SD?
Thanks once again,
Keith

Hi Keith,
Sure pm him I do all the time or you can ask the question on the SD forum under the section Ask Bill DeShivs in the General Questions tab. Asking in the forum others may see your question and give you their opinion. I have often asked questions and the more who see it the more answers I get with different options to do the same operation. Sometimes more is better; I like options. I can try the one I feel more comfortable doing or I may not have the tools for option A, but I may the the tool for option B.
In other words there is more than one way to do the same thing.
Go for it. I suggest using the General Question tab.
What's your screen name on SD?

[i] Cooee John,
Glad to see ya found my suggestion inspirational enough to join up. Laughing I've not been hanging out here much, as I need a lot a materials before I start mangling/crafting. Oh, that Delta-tab/button! The missus asks me who I'm wet-dreaming about, I don't dare tell her it's a knife! "Of course honey-it's you" jerkin Have you seen the "AK47" plans? Maybe we could chuck in together one day & get the necessary bits & pieces?

All the best Krab-E.

Hello Mr Krab-E,
I haven't had much time to go exploring the forum's various and interesting topics. I have to as they say Just Do It. I haven't seen the plans for the AK; I'll have to check that out. I'm planning to shot a pictorial of my Delta today and maybe by this evening I'll post it on SD, TB, WS a few others and here the only thing that could foul up my plans is me. The Delta Stag has wicked cool Sambar Stag scales. Every thing that Pascotto makes is made with museum quality scales.
Thank you, Dave, for the welcome note,
John

Hello Keith,
How is the Mikov coming along? Did you get the kit? Let me know if you need and help I just may have the answer and if not I'll try to get you one.
When you have a chance "Introduce Yourself" to the SD forum and don't be a stranger, if you already did I guess I missed. Check in leave a comment join in the conversation.
I should take my own advice and spend some time here on Sinza.
Later my friend,
John

Hey John,
I haven't got the kit yet. I've been kinda busy with some trades. I traded a bow to have someone forge a big bowie-camp knife out of 5160, I'm in the process of trading a flint knife I made for a handmade steel one, and I need to get some cattle horns out in the mail. And I have been meaning to introduce myself on SD but every time I get online I forget. I think I will do that right now.
Later, Keith

Hi Keith,
Sounds like you have been busy. The horns you're mailing are they from cattle that you own?
If I have time, I plan on posting the Delta Sambar Stag on the SD forum later tonight.
Later my friend,
John

They were from a Jersey heifer we dehorned so the horns were only about 3" long. Not big enough for knife handles but big enough for bow nock overlays. I love the Delta!! I hope to someday own something that nice. Last Saturday was my b-day so I got a little cash. Probably end up with a Mikov sometime.... still trying to decide.
Later, Keith

Mikov kit or Leverletto kit? I can't decide and they are the same price...

Hi Keith,
Depends on how you plan to use your knife. The mikov is a bigger more heavy duty knife. The leverletto is smaller so it's still a great knife, but not as beefy. The Mikov weighs more and has a larger profile in your pocket. The LeverLetto is lighter and takes less space in your pocket. Both have the same type of firing mechanism; both lock up nice and tight. It just depends on your personal preference. What I suggest is getting one of each.
I may have a Mikov that I can sell you for $40. plus shipping. It's like six dollars total $46. I'll check my stash of knives and I'll let you know what I have. I'll send you a PM with a photo maybe later tonight or tomorrow.
Talk to you soon,
John
