I found this knife in the backyard when I bought this house back in '74. It was in bad shape, so it was used for occasional root pruning and such. The handle was loose and full of cracks and the blade was well pitted. After I received my Takeda gyuto I got a different perspective on irregular surfaces in the sides of knives, so I decided to redo the handle and sharpen the old thing up. Then I saw someone reshape the blade of a very similar knife over at the other forum, and got more ideas, which may or may not see the light of day. Anyway, I uncovered a makers mark, it was made by the Ontario Knife Company. The blade is 14 inches long.
