Old knife usage
« on: May 17, 2020, 12:18:40 PM »
I was going through my old knives, putting them all in one box and came across this one. Do you think the original owner got his money's worth from it?

My mom had several like that. Sharpen it and it will probably be one of your favorites.

I have a couple of old butcher knives like that also. Half the blade width has been sharpened away. My grandmother used to sharpen her knives on the top of a stoneware bowl.

Yep, looks familiar to me too. I have one hanging on the wall in my kitchen. It's a big, long butcher knife, and half the blade has been sharpened away. The knife belonged to my Mother's Great Aunt Maime. It's ugly, but it's a family heirloom.

And I also much prefer the carbon steel knives over stainless ones. Whenever I see one in a resale shop I will pick it up.
