Please read our Terms below for details. This is a GREAT piece of antique cutlery with a superb blade that was hand-forged in Buffalo, NY by the L.
White Company, who specialized in producing cutlery of every description to supply the vast American stockyards throughout the nation. The company was founded by a blacksmith and that tradition of fine hand-forging is highly evident in the quality of this knife's materials and construction. Its whopping carbon steel blade was hand-forged to perfection and still bears the company's football-shaped logo and the date of their founding, 1837. Handles are equal to the blade, too, made of top-quality oak hafted over the full and fatted tang using the old-fashioned style birdseye rivets--just magnificent, as you can see in the photos.
Furthermore, it has been given an edge so fine and sharp that it will literally shave with it if you should call it to do so. We feel obligated to state the obvious here: please be careful; we'd hate for you to get careless and lose a hand or foot with it. Hunters will also gravitate towards this knife and the bigger the game they hunt, the better this knife will be.It is a direct descendant of the knives carried by buffalo hunters 150 years ago, and for anyone interested in re-enactment of that period, this would look mighty fine and dandy at one's belt. Measures 16.25" long with a 10" blade that's 3/16 thick at its thickest, tapering toward point and pommel, and the entire piece weighs well over 29 ounces. By the standards of lamb splitters, it's a relatively modest one but still comes up as a HUGE piece that will instantly upgrade any professional kitchen or serious collection. Truly an heirloom-quality piece in heirloom-quality condition.
