The one who restored this knife does amazing work, and takes great care to use the old high carbon steel blades to weld onto original tangs. The way the knife was before, it was truly worthless. I’ve already had numerous collectors asking to buy it. Before the restoration, I doubt that would have happened. Again, I know to purists for originality, this wouldn’t be the knife for them; however, to many others, I think they appreciate the restoration efforts.

I personally would never try to pass of a repaired knife as original, and I think seasoned collectors would know the knife was restored. Sure, if you find a newer collector and try to convince him the knife has never been repaired, then I guess you could say that’s fraudulent or immoral.
