San Michele Italian System

An Maide Mear Eire-Irish Stick

Throwing Blades

We are now offering the Bot Flumine de San Michele (Lightning Bolt of St. Michael) throwing knife set. The same ones I throw and teach about on the DVD of the same name. Each is hand cut and tempered, balanced to fly straight with no spin if you throw as taught and includes a leather belt sheath.  They come with a hand baked on resin to prevent rust, if you want it removed, any good solvent will do but i advise to leave it as is. These are sharp and real knives and we suggest you throw them under supervision and after instruction as on my DVD using all safety precautions and eye protection. We will only sell these to those who have already bought my DVD on the throwing of these.  For safety I suggest they be thrown in a tightly bailed, bail of straw set low to the ground.

The small one cost as much to make as the large one as it is harder to make and balance and fit a sheath because of the micro size.

$225 + $15 USA

Muletto

The Muletto, the long blade of San Michele can be seen in the book “Sicilian Stiletto Fighting, The Way of Honor”. It has a 17 inch triangular blade, the correct saber style grip and the grip is ray skin wrapped in wire providing the most beautiful and the most secure grip possible. The cross guard is a great Italian style stiletto design. Each blade is made to order.

San Michele Spring Assist Knife

This blade is for every day carry and I have a collection of Italian switch blades by some of the best makers, even some with magnum springs. They are beautiful, but

  1. They are not legal to carry everywhere.
  2. The strong springs in the good ones that give that great sound almost feel as if they could jump out of my hand if it was wet, slippery or I was in a hurry in the open.

So I went to the spring assist. Here I found problems

  1. In the ones that look like a real Italian stiletto they all have the guard backwards, look at the pictures. Some switch blades do as well. No one who ever tried a thrust into an object with one like this would do it twice. The backward curve of the guard slices your thumb wide open and i know as in a practice i thrust one into some soft wood and was bleeding everywhere, no good and a stupid and dangerous way to make a knife intended to ever stick into anything, be it practice or to save your life.
  2. The handles are mostly light weight cheap plastic or crappie light weight wood and held on with cheap tiny star head screws.
  3. The belt clips are also held on with the same cheap, tiny star head screws that very quickly strip out in the thread area and the head leaving the knife falling apart if you use the clip daily. Note in the one picture i am supporting the knife with a finger held against the clip. I had to change the grip a tad so you could see this, but that is one thrust grip used in the Italian arts and i have found the belt clip stabilizes that grip some. So it has another use.

The good news is the blades on some are very good as is the spring.

So what i am doing is this. I get a good quality knife for the blade and spring. Throw away the scales. Then

  1. I take the knife apart and reverse the guards so you won’t get cut, check the bearing surfaces and add a special oil that bonds with the metal
  2. Then I add real bone scales to the knife which are not commercially made and take a lot of elbow grease, all hand work with files and sand paper.
  3. Each bone scale is inlaid with a high detail, pure silver Saint Michael medallion.
  4. I hand fit the scales to each knife and replace the scale screws with longer better quality stainless allen button head screws.
  5. I can leave the belt clip off, or if you want it, I will replace those screws as well so it will not strip out or get loose.
  6. I then check for speed, mine is as fast as any switchblade and no jump to lose the knife and legal everywhere.
  7. The bone and silver scales adds about 3/4 of an ounce to the blade and gives it a nice quality heft.
  8. The overall length open is about 9 1/4 inches, the blade about 4 1/2 from tip to base. The perfect carry length.
