And every since Dave posted that beautiful Sabatier a few members have been looking around for some
here is a page of already sold knifes but will give you a idea of whats out there but some of the prices are really not as bad as e-bay.
i know that i will hit the few of the antique places we have here to look for my diamond in the rough.

Lee Valley (I think) years ago was selling NOS Sabs that had the logo of the sharpener lying down with a dog on his back to keep him warm. Alas, I didn't buy one.

I love the dogs in these pictures.

Do you think they're just shop dogs to keep the workers company and make it a more fun place to be?

Cool old pictures. I have seen ones like that before and others, perhaps from Sheffield, were guys were grinding like that. There is a video out there somewhere of a guy in Solingen grinding a presentation sword on a huge wheel standing up and he is wearing what can only be described as armored grinding boots. The rig looks like the lower half of some 50's sci fi movie robot costume, but more primitive.

Actually the dogs were here to warm the people legs because in this position they had cold feet.

Interesting. One would think a blanket draped over them would be less trouble (if not as much fun!).

Their dogs were quiet ones and very good friends :)
