It doesn't date back that far, but it's certainly of that lineage, and there's been nothing on the market in carbon steel for decades. It's also remarkable for its condition.Most pieces like this have chipped edges and numerous hammer marks on the top of the blade's spine, deforming it considerably. This has none of those problems, nor any other--condition is flat-out excellent, apart from some very normal discoloring from use. It was made by Enderes in Minnesota, a company more famous for having produced hand tools but they also made some surprisingly fine knives over the years. Who made it is secondary, however, to how well they made it and this knife was made stupendously well.
Its large curved carbon steel blade was hand-forged with a full tang, triple-riveted over solid beechwood handles of the finest quality. Its blade has been professionally edged for this sale to be RAZOR keen--far sharper than when it was new. The entire piece is beautiful and it just begs to be held.
Though it has some considerable collector value, it would be a shame not to use it, if you're able. Carbon steel blades of this vintage can hold a razor's edge like no other and I have little doubt it could still do more than its share of butchering of game or livestock. Comes with 11-5/8" blade (17-5/8" overall length) that is over 3 wide at its widest, and runs almost.25 thick along most of its length. Handle has no cracks, chips, looseness or damage to wood at all--just superb in every way.
