    Never considered a broken pin, I'm not one to force anything apart it took me a couple days of playing with it to get it apart. After your reply I took a closer look
    (used jewelers loop) it is a broken pin, I got it apart now my question is can anyone recommend a place to have it restored with out destroying the value? Thanks again

    Ok I see now. That makes more sense now and by the way nice to have you with us.
    I would leave as is as the cost can be very high to repair.
    With some luck you may be able to find another Bolster,but I still like it all the same.

    [QUOTE=bco6;793947]Not sure which side your calling the right but to point out the unusual part to me is the fact that the top rotates instead of sliding off .


    Lever points up and forward for thumb use, thus the R&L side.

    At the risk or reviving a dead thread... some other helpful information on Gravity knives. The original poster's knife had R.B.Nr code 0/0561/0019. Many of these codes are murky now as to who was the manufacturer, but not this one. This code and in fact 0/0561/0018-0020 found on Gravity knives is for Paul Weyersberg manufacturing at Solingen (0561).
