    Latham & Owen Chef Knife and 2 Jadeite stones

    Some of you may know how long I have been searching for Jade sharpening stones. Each time I finally have found one, I have to sell it. well, I got do it again but, this time I have a friend who periodically cuts new ones when he finds a clean enough piece. These are made of California jadeite and a dark green blue with white streaks. They are harder than steel and will last hundreds of lifetimes before you ever wear it out. They are around 10k to 12k grit and give a very high polished edge. These are from Jade Cove near Big Sur. since I don't have a strop I use a few passes on these and I'm good to go.

    First one is
    L 5 1/2 in x W 2 3/8 in x h 1 1/8 in

    $150 conus shipping

    1940"s Latham & Owen Sergeant 10in blade chef knife .
    This is a beautiful knife, nice distal taper. Needs a little love on the stones and a little handle love. Latham and Owen started in 1921 and became famous for there knives and table ware. The plant was destroyed in 1940 by the Germans and was immediately rebuilt after the war, The Sergeant line was started then and this is one of the early ones. Beautiful old growth rosewood handles and nickel pins. 10 in carbon steel blade.
