    Foster Bros. pron

    I saw someone on KF posted this link to some (I'm assuming) Russian website with some great old Foster Bros. knives.
    http://www.cookingknife.ru/iView.aspx?id=38
    I happen to have one of these chef knives in my possession from Son for PIF.
    Hope this link is ok with the mods.
    Maybe I can ask Marko if he knows anything about this site.

    Would it be bad form for a maker to copy these on a new knife?

    Love them!

    I wonder when they quit making knives with the Foster Brothers stamp? Back in the 1980's Columbia Cutlery sent me a large catalog with both their own line and a full range of "Foster Brothers" stamped blades. I think it is buried someplace out in the old catalogs I store up in the haymount of the barn. Not sure they were actually making knives or just selling contract made cutlery with their logo on them.

    If it is them I am guilty. Had some custom pins made over 3 years ago with the Lone Star.....thought it was an original idea. And then I thought the same thing about stabilized-epoxy filled Cholla cactus.
