knife-fi? - Page 119

post #1771 of 1777

Woohoo! I chucked out a big load of old magazines for recycling last week, and afterwards, I couldn't find my damascus Laguiole-style knife. I thought "well, that's gone forever", as the bin had been emptied the same afternoon.


Then, sorting out Christmas presents for wrapping, I found the knife in the bag which contained all the cards I'd bought. I like that knife a lot - it looks like this one, only with a cream-coloured handle.

Close call! Glad you found it.

The Monnerie has arrived! The handle's slightly darker than in the photos I've posted, and it is an inch longer than the Laguiole, at 8.5 inches (unfolded).

Well that certainly is pretty. I've been looking at a Thiers french folder in juniper wood. I like the shape of that one though. 


Just received a 50s-60s Primble redbone barlow that I'd been eyeing for a while.

Just arrived today. A Schrade Cutco (Walden NY) EO Teardrop jack, with tortoiseshell celluloid scales. Circa 1945, I believe.
