    Moved from General with replies: Kitchen knife restore questions

    Hi Wil, Let me suggest that you post your Kitchen Knife inquiry on this page/section : https://www.bladeforums.com/forums/kitchen-cutlery-tools.842/ as I'm sure you have better results/answers. That being said, it appear your Knife will for sure need some Blade reconditioning in addition...

    Thank you Bob for your help. So, might this Handle be "do-able ?" That is to say, is there a way to "fill that gap" with ? for a secure fit ? Thanks Bob. Regards, HARDBALL

    Help please! Mini Hatchet Head

    Hi all, I have a rather unique/unusual Mini Hatchet Head needing a handle (Sorry I am unable to post photos at this time). This mini Hatchet Head looks rather like a vintage PLUMB "Boy Scout" Hatchet (the PLUMB weights 18.65 ounces). The Mini Hatchet Head (when placed side by side) next to...

    The Mini Hatchet

    Hi all, I admit, I not very good when it comes to Fractions/Measurements. Might either of these handles be a close match for my (per above Specs) Mini Hatchet Head ? * 2.5" Blade Face *a FLAT (non rounded) 1.5" Poll * 3/4" THICK (measured width of Poll) *4.5" O.A.L. "The "Eye Hole" I...

    The Mini Hatchet

    Hi all, Sorry I am unable to post photos at this time. I have a rather unique/unusual Mini Hatchet Head (needing a handle). This mini Hatchet Head looks quite "similar" in design to a vintage PLUMB "Boy Scout" Hatchet (PLUMB weights 18.65 ounces). The Mini Hatchet Head (side by side)...

    Recommendation? Looking for a camping/food prep fixed blade

    Fair enough AntDog. I edited my original comment. Hello all, For anyone reading this old thread, here's what I suggest. Save your money for that ONE special Fixed Blade Knife for Camping/Hiking/Hunting/Bushcraft. I speak of the one you really always wanted (such as) a nice Bark River, ESEE...

    Recommendation? Looking for a camping/food prep fixed blade

    Oooh, thanks for pointing that out AntDog. I suppose we should ask the Mods to remove this thread as I suspect it no longer has any relevance and/or provide any useful information to those who might happen to stumble upon this thread. HARDBALL

    Ha! I'm "QUEEN" for a day!

    Hi Doc, Yes indeed, I'm always "on the hunt" for Treasures! No doubt by now you've seen my comments (here and there on BF) about my having found an "OUTSTANDING" condition Zero Tolerance 0200 Folder (mixed in among a box full of "cheap/also ran" (off Shores) Folders). I scored the 0200 for...

    Ha! I'm "QUEEN" for a day!

    Hi Doc, Too funny, this "Queen" Knife looks like it could be a "Fisherman's and/or Bird & Trout" Knife however, judging from the above video, it sure do LOOK like those "Steak" Knives......except...... I do believe the Knife I found today has authentic Antler/Bone slabs (as opposed to...

    Ha! I'm "QUEEN" for a day!

    Hi all, I found this vintage "Queen" Cutlery Fixed Blade (B&T ? Fishing ?) Knife today at a "Flea Market" for three dollars! The overall condition is quite good! The following Google link provided show a photograph of the exact same Knife I found this morning. I'm not sure if the...

    Do you have any dealbreakers?

    Hi Smiling, Well Sir, I have to take exception with No. (4) four. Thin blade knives are AWESOME! I think (hope) that the trend/fad of "Crow Bar" thick Knives has run it's course. This is not to say that (heavy) "thick" Knives don't have their place but, there is a reason why (for...

    OPINEL. Which "larger" one should I consider for next purchase ?

    Hi all, Well, no doubt about it, Opinel Knives are like "Lays Potato Chips". As I mentioned above, the BIG No. 12 just is too awesome so, I will plan to purchase a No. 12 in the future (just because). I am also seeing quite a bit of love for the Opinel No. 9 (which also looks to be a very...

    OPINEL. Which "larger" one should I consider for next purchase ?

    LOL, ya got me unwise! I should of explained in greater detail. I was attempting to compare the folding Opinel vs. the fixed blade Russell and/or Old Hickory Knives. On the whole, I'd take a "Fixed Blade" any day, still, there is something to be said for "the idea of a larger Bladed Knife...

    OPINEL. Which "larger" one should I consider for next purchase ?

    Hi HB, I was just watching a Video on the No. 12. Man, pretty AWESOME! I might have to buy the No. 12 just on general principle! I must confess, I do sort of like the idea of a larger Bladed Knife that it's O.A.L. is more compact when folded. That being said, I have been giving a serious...

    OPINEL. Which "larger" one should I consider for next purchase ?

    Hi all, I own two or three Opinel No. 8's which is really the "Goldielocks" of the Opinel line being an excellent "all around" size "Pocket" folding Knife imho. That being said (just because) I'm thinking about purchasing a "LARGER" (than No. 8) Opinel. So, pray tell, which is your favorite...
