    One of my products got a wonderful makeover! Check out this great little refurb Dan did on a Forgecraft he picked up from my shop:



    Talk about nice work!

    Ok guys, I know you've all seen Son's "collection" pics. I have had NO TIME AT ALL...ahem...to add anything to the store in a few days, but I have 2 of the sweet, paper thin German Parers (sheepsfoot-ish) available. They do have minor wear/rust that should come right off with Rick's method, or sandpaper. I'll even do it for you...

    Anyways, those little demons are up for grabs for $15 apiece, or $25 for both, plus actual shipping. Contact me if you'd like a picture or more info.

    OR:

    I'll toss one in for $5, with the purchase of the 12" American Grinding Co. chef knife.

    I'll see what I can do. I'm at work, but I'll try to get one or two emailed to me and I'll post from my "office" (iPhone).

    I'll be cleaning the handle up, and the tarnish/age on the blade, but here it is. They're wicked little parers!

    Thanks for the pix!
    Looks good. They are the longer versions of the common carbon peelers a few German makers still produce. Very thin indeed, mostly 1095, not too hard (around 56Rc), maintain by steeling.

    You say carbon, I say "Nicht Rostfrei" (not rust-free)

    Funny. "Nicht rostfrei" is the term for the general public. There is some warning in it. "Carbonstahl" is the term amongst the informed public, in opposition to "rostträge" or "Chromstahl". Robert Herder indicates on his knives simply "Carbon".

    my understanding is that the one I have is old/new stock from the the late thirties, they came with no handles and were coated in a cosmoline type substance and wrapped a dozen at a time. when they were purchased from the guy I got mine from, he would clean them up and put a rudimentary handle on it. The company still exists and still makes these types of knives now, but in stainless steel mostly and not as good in my opinion. It is the quintessential German paring knife design for the last century. It's simple, cheap, effective and easily sharpenable.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
