    dad sent me some dirty steel.

    Well, my dad sent me some more of my stuff from Cali, so that I can continue with the gospel of vintage steel. lol These are similar to some of the ones that I had stolen that I didn't put on the list. I also have some teeth I'll put up later.
    first up is this one it's in great shape for a knife that's a hundred and thirty years old. I found this info on the web, My limited research shows it to be an A.J. Jordan from Sheffield , England . The obverse (or Mark) side is stamped with AAA1, the same side handle is marked Jordan's best. My research showed that the "AAA1" marks were used during the mid 1880’s and indicates this was an import piece.The founder of A.J. Jordan was actually an American from St. Louis , Missouri who moved to England to manufacture knives in Sheffield . The majority of his early imported pieces were designated for their warehouse and stores in St. Louis, Missouri
    dimensions: 9 1/4 in blade x 1 1/8 in carbon steel scimitar. 6 pin handle $50 conus shipping included.

    the second one is an American made unmarked vintage 1960's scimitar
    it is carbon steel and needs a little love to be useable.

    dimensions: 10 in x 1 3/4 in
    3 rivet construction

    third one is also American made probably 1960's. This is a butcher's boning knife, it was most definitely used in a slaughter house setting and was ground to hell, until it was half it's original height.
    carbonsteel blade. there is some working history here, this knife came out of Texas cattle country.
    dimensions: 1o 1/2 in x 5/8 in
    3 rivet construction
    $25 $5 conus shipping
