Hi Hope everyone is well and getting better looking with age .
Trying to find vintage knives in your city sometimes can be a bit frustrating .
you have garage sales if you wake up early and you can spend a lot of time going through to find that one knife in 10 or more sales .
or swap meets where its 90% stuff you don't need 5% that is interesting and 5% that might be in what your looking for .
That brings us to thrift stores where if you dig around at enough of them you might find something and forget antique store they know what they have .
So everything that has more value is online and you'll pay , especially in the last 4-5 years where more and more are looking to refurbish old carbon knives .
It does not mean you can't find a diamond in the rough someplace .
for me if i find one knife somewhere I will go back again and again hoping for some for magic .
which brings me to what one can find .
not bad for $23
And sharpening stones are even harder to find .
and now to try to save that spade bolt on the Herder boning knife
