    I love this thread simply because there is something about vintage carbon cutlery, a feeling, that I simply don't get when I pick up something new. It makes me imagine being back in a tiny kitchen in France cooking with Escoffier. It's silly seeing as I've never been to france, but I do fantasize about working over there at least a few years. I figured a couple pics of the vintage sab that dave restored for me belong here. I have to put one in the favorite knife I own thread too. This thing is the only knife I baby.

    Scimitar is spoken for, but there's plenty of great vintage and newer stuff coming up soon.

    I love how the wa handle looks like it belongs on the forgecraft. A true east meets west.

    Wow, I just removed all of the chips, and reset the bevel on the scimitar, with my crap Chinese 600-800, and man, is this knife ever SWEET! Next up, 1k, 6k and newspaper strop. Lucky new owner...

    On a side note, this crap stone was the best $5 I've ever spent!

    I'll send you one

    Very similar in construction, but I believe that is more a result of era and stylistic trends (Takeda versus Moritaka is an example of this). However, I'm not as into the history as Son, or Steeley. However, Washington Forge produced Forgecraft, and old Hickory was Ontario Knife Company, I believe.

    Cool question...now I want to double check.

    old hickory knives are made by Ontario Knife company and Forgecraft was made by Washington Forge. The pattern is cold rolled forged and usually 1095. Around this time frame, a lot of companies had very similar patterns such as Case xx, Cattaugurus, Shapliegh's hammer forge, Winchester, Remington and a handful of others. Of all of these I like the Forgecraft the best, The grind and heat treatment tend to be a bit better than the others I've used. I really think if I could find someone willing to re- heat treat a blade to its optimal , then I would have a truly exceptional knife with better edge retention.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    I'm working on it, Son.

    The issue is 1095 and its love of warping....
