News Paper Front Page!!

Apparently on Oct 21 the front page of the Cape Cod Times put a picture of our friends at Field Point Oyster Farm using one of our shuckers!! You can see it in Elisabeth’s hand. They have two of them and used them all weekend at oyster fest, shucking thousands of oysters. They were one of over a dozen pro shuckers using our blades in Wellfleet. It is great having some of the greatest shuckers in the world using and appreciating our blades and giving us feedback every year. They let us know we are doing things right and with their feed back our blades just keep getting better.

Tonight’s Rehab Project.

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.

Tonight’s Rehab project.

Rehabbing a 100 year old plus high carbon steel chef knife. The blade was in really good shape but the handle was rusting and the wood was rotten and falling off. I removed the old handle and hit the rust with a brush then sprayed it with a rust converter. I then picked out a scrap piece of mammoth tusk we had kicking around and a piece of bacote wood, it is one of my favorites. I then added some green liner and brass pins. I gave it a sharpening and polish and now it sings and cuts like a dream. Really happy with it. I love giving these old knives a new lease on life. I hope the customer is just as thrilled.

We have been really busy this is possibly the biggest inventory we will have all year and we hope to sell it all. This event last year rained and it was still amazing this year the weather should be beautiful so we can not wait.

A knife for Mom.

So my Mother has about a dozen small paring knives that she uses for all her cooking. They are all cheap and dull almost on first use after sharping and she hates them. She has been hounding me for a good paring knife that will stay sharp. Well mom it is your lucky day! Knowing that my mom was born into the age of stainless knives that no one ever cared for or sharpened or god forbid hand washed after use , dried and put away. I knew if I made a knife for my mother it would have to be tough and rugged and able to withstand all the abuse and neglect it would receive in her hands. The blade is made of Nitro V. A steel that is supposed to be rust and stain proof. The handle made from Acrylic resin . It should be able to handle all the things we tell people to never do to a knife. Plus it has fancy file work down the spine for beauty and class just like mom. 🙂
