This style of knife is often called a Serbian chef knife. It has hickory scales, brass pins exposed lanyard hole at the end of the handle, and a fitted leather sheath. Blade length: 7-3/8" (as measured along the cutting edge); total length: overall 12". Made in Kentucky, USA.
The Blade: • Hand-forged from 5160 steel • Tempered at 440º F • Acid-washed, forced patina • Approximately 1/8" wide at handle • May require further sharpening • This steel type rusts fairly easily, so it must be cared for (oiled, cleaned, etc.)
The Handle: • Various • Various
The Sheath: • Dyed vegetable leather • Hand stitched • Sewn-on belt loop • Custom fitted for this knife
Disclaimers: • Really only one: This is a unique, hand-made item. Thus, the blade may have hammer and other marks, the sheath stitches aren't machine-perfect, the handle may have a few scratches And et cetera. Be sure to look at the photos. Don't expect a factory-machined product. Do expect a quality, tough, one-of-a-kind knife.

For the Old Knives:
Condition of the Knives Unless noted specifically otherwise in the individual knife's description, the following common conditions apply: • The knife is used. • The knife has been previously sharpened. •Because of the two conditions above, the knife will have some scratches. • The knife has been cleaned and lightly oiled. • The knife blades are free of rust and dirt, but some will have signs of pitting (those dark spots on the blades you can see in the photos). • The knife has no issues that should affect usability, unless noted in the description.
Dating the Knives This can be a tricky proposition. Each knife presented has been researched and dated as accurately as possible through a variety of means, including tang stamps, style/construction, advertising and comparison with known samples. It's part of the fun. Sometimes a manufacture date is easy to establish--more often than not, a reasonably small range of years can be confidently defined. But there are individual knives which can't be placed into a set range, especially if the knife was part of a long-time production line which changed very little over the years. I won't guarantee mistakes haven't been made; however, I have stated the dates as accurately as I could determine.
