    My father found this beauty many years ago while walking near my parents' home. The small blade was missing, so he hired a local knife maker to replace it. After Dad's passing, I inherited it and carry it and use it almost every day. I have dropped it numerous times, as evidenced by the cracked handle material and broke the tips of both blades ;) That is why the main blade shows obvious reshaping. :)

    @Dean_Gretsch how about another from the past not sure the exact age as it was my grandfather's Keen Kutter stock knife which would put it pre 1940. That rounded blade on the left was wicked sharp when stropped, on a leather strap we kept in the barn. 3 generations used it.

    You can't fake the patina on those blades. Real steel.

    It won't hold an edge as long as as some of the more modern steels but it doesn't take much to keep it sharp either.

    We have a nice sunny start today with a cool breeze, busy cleaning today then I might manage to get the camera out. Hope you are staying safe in all the stormy weather you are getting in the USA.

    4 hours and 12 or so minutes today.
    20.24 for the week so far.
    Upper management wants Trish to hire another floor guy for Saturday and Sunday.
    She'd rather not and I agree. It would take 3-5 hours off my paycheck.
    The only plus side would be not getting up at 4am on a Saturday.

    What’s temheir reasoning for hiring someone else? Are you getting close enough hours to qualify for benefits?
