    more of my vintage blades

    Here are some vintage 10" american made carbon steel chef knives. They don't make them like this anymore. I would say these were made in the 60's. They look like they may have been made by the same maker. Dimensions, shape, rivet pattern are identical. The rosewood would have been an upgrade and the lanyard hole more utilitarian. These will take a hair popping edge. There is no makers mark
    1. rosewood handle, 10" blade length 2 1/4" wide. triple brass rivets
    2. mahogany handle, 10" blade length 2 1/4" wide triple brass rivets and a lanyard hole
    $40 each

    I also have two vintage French blade blanks made of carbonsteel. The blades are 8 inches long by 2 inches wide, they originally came off of two chef knives that were very similar to nogent style only the handles were stubbier and fatter and a lot more rustic, more farmer style knives. they are from the sixties. I removed the handles years ago because they were completely rotted through. I was going to put antler handles on them as I had some really nice elk, but life got in the way and I forgot about them. $35 plus shipping. $5 shipping Conus

    up next is one of my favorite knives in the whole world. Another 1950's forgecraft hi-carbon 10" chef knife. I personally think it is one of the finest American made production chef knives. It can take and amazing edge and it will last many lifetimes if cared for properly. Cut an onion with it and it will turn purple black, the blade and possibly the onion. So, get a patina on it quick. The American Hickory handle is cracked. I remember my dad saying that the pin was sticking out, so he took a ball peen hammer and gave it a whack and split the handle, he was an incredibly strong man back in the day. This knife is so good even with the split handle the price stays the same $40 plus $7 shipping
