    That knife looks right up your alley! Your handle will be a bit elevated, of course, but that will just make it that much nicer.

    I like the lines on that knife!
    The knives that come out of this should be very elegant

    That would be cool. Interesting design, what it's origins, where was it made?

    American, 1830's-1840's probably made in Massachusetts. There is a makers mark but, you can't read it at all. This style of knife construction was made for about a hundred years. Braised and pinned pewter bolster with ebony handle and carbon steel blade. Upgraded versions would have ivory handles and a silver wash over the steel. They often came with horn, cattle bone or ox bone handles. They were very common throughout the Civil War period up into the 20's. This particular one is older and at one point I had a slicer and 5 in table knife that matched it but, for the life of me I can't find them or remember who made them. Theory has a small slicer of mine that looks very similar that was made by J. ward around 1880-1890
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
