What I find particularly interesting on a lot of these historical plates and the photographs of these historical knives is that most utilize hidden tang construction.

This makes the most sense considering the steel and methods of manufacture.

These are great. However, I was surprised to see a Bob Kramer in the middle picture, in the first post. Even in ancient times, he was selling knives.
