    Default Got a deal

    I went to a gun show in South Bend yesterday just to look around and was looking through a box of old cutlery and found these 2 gems...

    These are Forschner - Victorinox got them both for $6.00..I think it's a good deal.


    The larger chef knife has scallops and makes me think that it's more of a bread knife....anyone ever seen anything like this?

    No, a bread knife has a flat serrated blade. That looks like a semi-serrated chefs knife. Kind of a cuts anything blade style. Saw some like that years ago when we tried out a knife leasing service in restaraunt I worked at. Nice for veggies and fruit, not so good for meats.

    THose old carving knives like the other one make great fillet knives if you grind them down a bit and get rid of the last 3-4 inches.

    I'm thinking about keeping it the way is and using it to slice filets off of tenderloins in 1 long slice so as not to saw through it....I saw an Episode of Good Eats and AB used a similar knife for that task.

    Joneser,

    Nice look blades my friend, good find for that price. I missed them as the week before that gun show was in Crown Point, me and a buddy went and found some good cheap ammo, but that was about it. They got some neat stuff at that thing!!!

    You didn't get a deal, you got a steal!

    Either knife is most likely a $30 knife new.

    The serrated one is indeed a chef's knife. The serration is kind of a gimmick for folks that aren't able to sharpen their own knives. The idea is that it will hypothetically "stay sharp forever" Actually is give more of a saw cut than a slice. It ought to be handy for tough skinned veggies like maters and bell peppers.

    The other it definitely a slicer. W/O knowing the actual width and length, I would say it is most likely a ham slicer, but whichever it is, it should be great for slicing any meat.

    As far as a fillet knife goes, I prefer a much more flexible blade, and being as you can buy a decent functional fillet knife for under $10, I would prolly not be grinding eith of those down.

    Great score. I love finding stuff like that.
