Does the tang taper in the handle? :)
Thanks, it has about 8 inches of cutting with 12.5 overall. Not sure of thickness, calipers are in the shop, but it is thin for sure, we wanted a real slicer. It does have a distal taper to the tip, with a slight taper in the tang to keep the weight balance right at the heel. The clayless hamon is true Master Smith beauty, creating a differential heat treat with the edge at 61 RC.

Thank you, Kris.
It sure is a beautiful knife as are many others you have shown.
I always enjoy looking at them.

Thanks FRJ, much appreciated. Here is a cleaver my friend made for me, over 1/4 in thick CPM 3V, heat treated by Peter's using a Delta heat treat at 61RC. This thing is a monster and super abrasion resistant. Distal taper with a slight taper in the tang.

Great looking kitchenware, your wives should be happy!
*joking! ::super_happy::

Surprised I haven't posted these Anton Wingen sets I've had, probably for close to 10 years. May have picked them up on eBay back then. One set has poultry shears that are gorgeous tools. The end cap is missing on one carving knife, both have been used. One knife has deer/elk etching. Great looking stag handles all around. Just might need to break out a set since the holidays are just around the corner.

My cat, Ireland, was helping out/modeling.

Interesting how they made the springs on these.

That is a great looking set, John. Ireland seems to be ready for you to put it to use.

Ha! She would prefer a can of fish (sardines, oysters, etc). When I open a can, my cats are there with their mouths watering. :lol:

Great l@@king cutlery everyone! ::tu::

I bought a raffle ticket at a local community fund raiser back in June. All the knives pictured below are what I won, including a box set. All are Made In China. I use the orange handle knife quite a bit and it is SHARP. The others are in a kitchen drawer. The box set, still sealed, also contains one of those flimsy plastic "cutting boards." Still, not bad for $1.00 raffle ticket.

Nice, I would guess the top knife has 489-8 stamped on the handle.

This knife is unmarked, unless it is lightly marked under the stuff on the blade. flat on one side with an alternating rows of angled saw cutting action. Most of the Keystone designs are worn down. Not sure if it can be sharpened but it makes short work of loaves of hard crust gourmet breads. Not found matching pictures online, so any ideas of the maker?
