    Cris, the 14" scimitar/breaking knife was likely intended for professional use. The breaking portion would most likely hit about 2.5mm at the spine, while the thin overall blade shows it's age, in my mind. The 70s seemed to produce fatties, but older blades were thin, largely because it worked. I'd love for Son to add his perspective on these.
    Bullnose is older 40's or 50's

    because of the half tang, perhaps?

    The bullnose appears to be full tang. It is the thinness of the spine. Older knifemakers had better skills and could make thinner knives do the same work. The ones from the 60"s and 70's were still good just thicker the skill set was diminished with the younger generation and more modern manufacturing processes.

    Son, I must humbly agree about the full tang. On my crappy phone screen it wasn't that obvious a prima vista, poor excuse, I do admit.

    The other long one I have is a dexter scimitar of some sort. There's some numbers on the handle I can barely make out. I'll try to get some pictures and get the handle cleaned up tomorrow.

    Anybody ever seen one of these Robeson Sure Edge knives. Weird texture on the upper part of the blade.
