Our classic Box & Tongue, here with a Triple Rosette ID is an exercise in old-school craftsmanship. The links are a lower profile variant of our Model 10 curb links. But the real magic is in this beautiful classic mechanism. Construction is entirely by hand and fine tuned with file and experience. The tongue is folded and hand-sprung. And as for the safety, well we don’t need one because our clasp works as promised.
Press firmly on the trigger and at full compression slide your thumb away from the box, separating the tongue from the box. This motion takes a bit of practice and effort, but that’s to prevent accidental opening. A truly clever mechanism requiring some care and skill. Welcome to the quality of a bygone era.
