After a few discoveries in my grandmothers garage previous summer, I asked her if she was sure she didn't have any old knives left. She said she thought she did, so she went looking for them. Today she showed up with an old Cigar box filled with old large kitchen knives. Some were from Solingen, there was a Wenger filet knife, a knife from La Rose,... and a smaller folding knife. Since folding knives are my main interest, this one got my immediate attention.
It looks a lot like some of the standard brandless knives -made in China and marked as 'Carpenters knife'- you can find in every local gardening shop or any DIY shop. But this one was old, and not marked 'made in China' but marked 'Solingen'. We've got a lot of kitchen knives ourselves from Solingen, because they're just very good at food prep with their thin, sharp carbon blades.
I am wondering what kind of knife this is. Is it just an 'unnamed' pocket knife from an anonymous knifemaker from Solingen, or does it have a known creator, does the knife itself has a name or number,... I was interested if any of you guys would know.
If nothing turns up, that's no biggie because I think it's still a nice knife for the collection.
It has some rusting, but I'm going to try to remove the rust while keeping the patina on the blade.
Anyway, on to the pics:
