Its bullnose blade was forged of carbon steel of excellent quality with an extra-large clipped point. This blade was originally given a surface pattern consisting of a series of overlapping machined circles, very much in the manner of the exceptional knives of Ernest Warther of Dover, Ohio.Warther was neither the first nor last maker to use this technique and I think the age of this piece predates Mr. From age and use this surface treatment has become less obvious and it's still perfectly clear and evident. The construction of its handle also borrows from another legendary maker, Bill Scagel, consisting of a series of chunks of birchwood, stacked atop one another and sandwiched at bolster and pommel with solid brass over a full and hidden, rat-tail tang.
Just look at it--a thing of beauty and a testament to its maker skill. As with all carbon steel knives it must be kept dry to prevent rusting but the superior performance delivered by carbon steel combined with its ease of edge maintenance more than offset this minor inconvenience, as any veteran chef or butcher can readily confirm.
And we do hope you will use it if you're able; at 12-3/8" long with a 7.5" blade it is sized to be one of any meatcutter's most handy and versatile knives for trimming and cutting meats, of course, but also for just about anything your kitchen calls upon it to do, from slicing up some onions to making a few hundred sandwiches. Condition is used but excellent with no problems of any kind and whether you're a user or collector this is the kind of knife that you will immediately embrace as an heirloom and something you'll be proud to pass along to future generations.
