Nice knives there, Primus.
A pretty desirable set I would imagine.

Here are some I don't use. That big cleaver is thirty two inches long. One of the bread knives was built in the 1850s. Sheffield, of course.

Got this set of six steak knives marked MAC Japan today for $8. Wood scales and a really comfortable feel. My wife wants to use these in lieu of my stag handled ones.

K7K: Another terrific catch. Somewhere in Japan the odds are somebody must make poor knives. I just never encounter them. From kitchen cutlery on to pocket knives and then swords the Japanese seem to me to be especially gifted in the arts of blade making.

Tongueriver: Though I am best kept out of the kitchen I do love the older slicers: Very simple i.e. wooden handles and carbon steel blades. Don't have any as old as yours, just well used blades from the likes of Chicago Cutlery, Ontario etc. They evidently keep their efficiency for generations when treated right.

My favorite kitchen knife I own is a vintage I. Wilson Shear Steel knife. The sharpest knife in my kitchen.

Nice butcher knife, Fatman. Looks to be a fairly old Sheffield.
Do you use a chef knife in your kitchen too?

And welcome here.

Here's a nice old Robeson kitchen knife I picked up at a flea market on Sunday. Beautifully designed I think. Tapered tang, handsome bolster and a very thin tip on the blade. Ebony scales with three small pins. 13" over all and a 8" blade.
Thanks for looking.

There is a heck of a lot of character in that old knife. Some real thought went into its design. ::tu:: ::tu::

Love the brand and I'm so glad it wound up in my kitchen drawer. ::super_happy::

Here are my three newest kitchen knives.I bought them at an antique shop I frequent but haven't been to in awhile.They were just putting these out for sale and I grabbed one of each. I was tempted to buy them all but I'm trying to slow down a bit.There were about a half dozen of each of these and they were $2 each.
