    Great finds! Keep the pictures comming! I am wondering about the stamping patterns on the knives. Were they meant for food release? We dont find similar on today's knives, e.g. Granton grind.

I think it is a meat slicing knife, but I could be wrong. Does anyone know what this knife would have been designed for? I have seen meat slicers with the blunted tip, but cake knives may have also been designed similarly. This one looks to have a nice geometry for slicing meats, not pastries.

    Anyone familiar with this pattern from Sheffield? Thanks.



    I somehow missed this post.

    I'm just curious why nobody mentioned that damn handle on the slicer?!?

    Yes the handle on the IXL is quite interesting. The 4 pins and single large center rivet (not sure if its a pin or rivet) make it very cool. The wood has excellent color as well, possibly a type of rosewood. This thing gets wicked sharp and slices meats like a pro.

    I do not know too much about the slicing knife but I believe the keen kutter pocketknife is a rare pattern.

    very nice!
    love the copper handle pins
    early 1900's/Victorian era they made fine cutlery until income taxation, then they cheapened the quality after that in my opinion
