    I’m thinking of picking up some vintage carbon steel kitchen knives from that big auction site. Are there any makers that are standouts in quality?

    My great grandpa swore by J A Henckels Zwillingswerk. Really, though, it would be hard to go wrong.

    The ones that I use and always look for are Foster Brothers. I absolutely love their steel.

    Forgecraft, although they tend to be overpriced.

    Condition of the blade take precedence.

    Rust is the big enemy. Have a pile of old carbon steel blades that may be beyond saving. They may become a custom blade.
