    Picture of the year!
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence

    What I find particularly interesting on a lot of these historical plates and the photographs of these historical knives is that most utilize hidden tang construction.

    This makes the most sense considering the steel and methods of manufacture.

    These are great. However, I was surprised to see a Bob Kramer in the middle picture, in the first post. Even in ancient times, he was selling knives.
