View Full Version : Interesting knife on eBay

04-16-2012, 06:28 AM
After looking at all the refurb threads going on, I had a quick trawl of the bay and thought this looked quite interesting


Anyone have any idea if the dates make sense? The handle doesn't seem right, the blade looks interesting though.

Also if anyone is looking for a Beatty there were 2 that seemed reasonable BIN.

There is also a forgecraft 10" chef on there for a very reasonable price if anyone is interested.

that guy is saying a'lot that's not there.
and it is pitted . a no go for me.

He says the pitting comes from forging. Some of those look very bad. It also says it has a damascus pattern, I may be just not seeing it.

The pitting being from inclusions in the steel kind of makes sense and the damascus pattern looks to be from folding the steel -consistent with the steel being full of impurities. It's more visible near the heel. Wouldn't be a user would just be interesting to see as an early village blacksmith type knife.

Ok looking at some other pics, I did end up seeing damascus patterns. The handle looks well made too. A little love on it should be good.

I'd buy it if I had the cash. Looks interesting, at least.

I was the first bidder on it and then a bunch of guys looking for vintage knives to restore jacked up the price. lol I used to have one with the same makers mark I'm thinking it's closer to post civil war not early 1800's also judging by the bolster, handle and overall shape I think it was part of a set. carving set or multiple table knife set. it has that feel.

Look at what you started Son - All these people going their merry way and then "Bam" - "Hey guys fix up a couple of classics" and now you have a freakin' feeding frenzy for vintage knives. :angry1: :dazed: :knife:

Haha, I had the feeling it was going to get bid beyond my reach, otherwise I'd have kept it to my self until it landed on my door mat.
