On the one you are referencing, Ian, I agree.
My apologies Jose. I thought you referred to the other one.

Oh no problem Ian. I like to learn.

You know, once I thought I made an error, but I found out that I was mistaken...

Chris: Sorry, but we don't do Pasadena anymore, since they cut the show from three days to two. To much work for just two days. But we still do the Pomona Militaria Show in May. Hope to see you there...........Dave.

Good eye, I think catches like this are the most fun.

You're very right, Mross. Ebay is still a good source from time to time, I caught 3 very nice twistcore krises this year alone, 2 were under hundred bucks, way below the of bidding war radar.

I agree Chris, there are still sleepers to be found if you have a combination of a good eye and a good deal of luck.

True David. When ever I have time and free from any thing that is when I do my scouting. I take my time searching from item to item, each category that's link to what I am searching for. Two of the krises that I found this year were misspelled and it was buried in no where, I was surprised when I found it, I crossed finger a bit hoping that no one will fight me against it, and sure enough. none

I also take my time looking deep into those thick rusted photos, looking for signs, very rewarding at the end..

Default ebay twiscore kris

Here's one of the twistcore krises that I got from ebay this year. It has a very robust blade. If you look at the last photo carefully, evidence of vein like pattern seen on twistcore blades. Re-sized photos from seller.

Hello DaveS, Do you still have this twistcore kampilan that I gave you as present from Pasadena Knife show some odd years ago? That's was my first twistcore puchase, some give away price. Seller asked me, what did you see in it? told him the handle! hahaha.

Chris: Yes i do. When you said campilon i couldn't remember which one until i looked at your link. I also found out that a full-sized camp that i bought from Lee Berg, and which has a very rare handle style also seems to have a strange type of "twist". There is some dark staining that needs to be cleaned up before i can really tell, but i think it is some kind of twist. It has been up on our backboard for a good number of years and i just didn't take a really close look until a year or so ago. Iv'e been thinking about taking it down and working on it, just have to work up the ambition i guess.........Dave.

Ian.
