1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Just a small drop of any oil like 3 in 1 is fine,if you plan to use it on game prep then choose an applicable food friendly oil.
    A drop on the pivot pin and a drop on the back spring is all you'll need.
    Again caution against any abrasives,wire wool/wet n dry etc can destroy a knifes character.

    Knife is an early Buck 110 with no makers mark (they didnt etch them until later on)
    Steel is 420HC so high carbon content but very easy too sharpen.
    Some good advice already given, common household cleaning equipment, none harsh liquids and a lot of elbow grease will give this a new lease of life and it will retain its character and a few scars of real life usage :thumb:

    How dull is the edge?
    If you are not used to sharpening, and the edge is battered, you may have to completely reprofile the secondary bevel.
    If you are struggling, send it onto me if you like, and i will restore and sharpen for you :thumb:

    That's a pic of the Folding Hunters in my collection,all Bucks except the top left which is a Carl Schleiper/Solingen
    With regard to sharpening,if you don't know how to sharpen a knife yourself,find someone who does,it really is as simple as a few swipes on either edge on a decent hone,but you can make a real pigs ear of it if you are not careful.If the knife where mine I would clean it and cherish it,you can buy a fixed blade Mora for about £6.99 that you can carry that will cut way better and you won't lose any sleep if you drop it.

    The knife isn't actually dull at all, it looks like a quick sharpen needed to me but I'm guessing.

    Nice story mate. Whatever happens, keep that knife. Back in the 70's and 80's they were very popular. Everyone had one. Came in all different sizes. Much like Opinels in that respect. Great little lock knife. Solid click when you opened them, and the dark smooth wood against the brass was irresistible to the eye. The ones I had never held an edge though. You could sharpen them ok, but the edge would dull after any use. I would do as others have suggested mate...? You don't need to pay someone else to give your dear fathers knife a spruce up mate. Get some T Cut on the brass for starters, then give the wood a go over with some steel wool. The stainless steel blade will clean up a treat with a bit of elbow grease. They are tough little knives. Good luck, and God bless.
    Walter
