    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

    That Herder with the Pukas Spade pin is quite the find!
