    Goodell is one of my favorite profiles on an American vintage knife and they cut like hell.

    Posted this in the new buy forum - but had to share - Another former Son knife. I gave it a super clean, got the handle and pins cleaned up, took it to the Gesshin 4k stone, got a stupid sharp edge, and have been enjoying cutting all sorts of things. This knife LOVED some USDA Prime Ribeye. Got a monster steak, grilled for first time this year on charcoal, and after a good 10 min rest, carved and indulged. The patina is gorgeous!
    Next to Del Parer:

    Next to Zakuri 270 Suji (pre-cleaning and cutting):


    Now for the finger guard... a trip to Home Depot is in order.

    Here it is all fixed up. The right side is convex and the left is concave so I put a 70/30 edge on it. I'm taking for a test drive tonight.





    I even made a saya for it ala 5150

    I posted these in the New Buy thread, and someone suggested I post them here, too. Besides these, I have a PILE of ODC. Mostly yard sale finds.
    I need to invest in some good polishing and sharpening gear now.

    I bought this 10" Dexter for $1. It was pretty rusty, and the work I did on it was pretty quick and dirty. Paid someone to sharpen it on the EdgePro, and it's wicked sharp, and lots of fun to cut stuff up with.




    I can't find a maker's logo on this 12 incher, but it looks like a nice piece of steel. The handle is pretty blocky and uncomfortable, so that's gonna have to change. I'm also gonna take my time an polish this one up nice.




    Not sure what I'm going to do with these yet. They'll be petty knives by the time I get them straightened out.

    That 12 in one is probably the best in the bunch and once you sharpen her up she will cut circles around the other guys 1960's vintage American carbon. It's a nice knife.

    I actually have a second one of those, maybe a tad shorter. It needs to be re-handled in the worst way.
