    My Vintage finds

    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

    Good to have you back Steeley! Nice finds!
    Just one thing....You don't post pics of pretty girls at the end of your posts any more?

    There are many people who claim to be good cooks; just as there are many people who, after having repainted the garden gate take themselves to be painters.
