    Some future projects, laying around.

    All are Forgies, except the top one is a John Pimble Hickory...I really, really like the handle shape; I was planning on doing a hidden tang style handle, since it's a short tang; trying to keep the same shape.

    Question is, should I go ahead and rehandle it, or is it rare enough that I should leave it alone?

    I got some flack from doing the handle on this vintage Sab oyster, as they are a little rare; often fetching $50 to $100 on the bay...but, it was in good condition, minus some splitting on the original handle, so I thought, what the hay!

    I'd say keep the top one intact. Not sure if its "rare" but you don't see knives from that vintage with those handle shapes often. I'm sure someone who actually knows why they are talkin about will chime in, lol

    Love that blade, no fingerguard, no bolster, brass rivets, very nice profile. American?

    Randy, I remember this blade from when you let me stay over, and it is a special piece of vintage cutlery. It looked and felt American to me. However, if I remember correctly, the taper on this one was especially impressive. I guess it says a lot that a guy who makes knives for a living uses this as his primary knife.

    Yep Its all American! Brass riveted rosewood handles. beautiful blade. A little over 10" of ODC!!

    The reason this knife is "special" is because it was a gift from a great friend. The reason its used daily in my home is Its a great cutter with a solid profile! It cuts pretty darn good

    This awesome blade, a damascus Ealy petty and a AEB-L HHH paring knife pretty much cover anything we need in he kitchen at the moment!

    Hey That does look like my knife!

    Not sure what steel but my guess would be 1095.
