    The top one was purchased in '79, originally twelve inches, currently about eleven inches.

    Bottom one purchased in '82, originally ten inches, currently about eight and a half.

    Thanks, fellas. Just got through a day of work with the two Sab's & absoluely love the way they performed!!! Handles are very comfortable in hand and the blades cut really quit well, I couldn't be happier.
