back story on this knife goes like this... This amazing Dual Action OTF
design (push up on the slider button to fire the blade straight out of
the handle and pull back the slider to retract) represents our longtime
friend Paul Panak's lifetime journey of switchblade research and
development. That journey began would begin with his first switchblade
purchase made right here almost 20 years ago back when PVK was mailing
paper catalogs and you had know somebody to get on the mailing list. In
the early years Paul created extraordinary works of art that began with
imported Italians that were rebuilt from the ground up then tricked out
with any number of combined extravagant materials. Then at a point he
began to build from scratch and went on to challenge himself by building
every classic pattern side opening stiletto Italy had ever sent to the
United States. The culmination of that work was likely Paul building
the legendary square button Latama he did in 2006. This sqare button
Latama design was originally built in Italy in the 50s by Sam Polk and Patrazio Pasquale and is truly most most sought after Italian auto ever built with only 12 knives known to be in existence. As
the years went by Paul's designs got more modern and a few fixed blades
even appeared. Then in late 2013 after many years of consideration and
engineering he finally developed his first OTF engine and produced the
Razor Stiletto, a modern day design available in both alloy and
stainless steel handle models. With that success in hand and many
collectors still asking for his older designs he would naturally return
to his origins and build an Italian - but this time it's the OTF you see
before you with its signature finger guards and matching top and bottom
bolsters with natural horn inlay.
