You know how much I enjoy working with rehabing old knives. This is a Nichols Brothers butcher knife made in Greenfield Mass between 1892 and 1905. It is made of Sheer Steel which is awesome and very rare. you see it some in cutlery pre-1900 back to the 1690’s when the process was created. The client’s father had this knife and he inherited it and wanted to keep it and use it . The old handle had fallen off and was very rotten. The back 2 of the 5 pins were complementary gone so they were relocated farther back at the end of the handle and I kept the original shape and thickness for the most part . It is redone in Bacote and a blue liner. The steel polished up awesome with little effort. It is a very thin razor sharp knife. Love it, sad to send it back.
