Thank you for the reply, Raf.

Thank you for the photos, Philip.
Not seen that type either. It Is a simple design, and probably as good as the pinned type. As you say though, the Finnish model takes this design a step further....

David,

I would go so far as to say that nearly all ferrous grips were made in parts and brazed together.
I have not seen as many as some here, but all the ones I Have seen were made that way.

Wheellock,
If you search using "Tinderlock" or "Snaplock,....snapping matchlock, or Arquebus" you will get swamped in Michael's old threads and photos.

It looks an interesting and attractive knife, Martin.
