Recommended Posts

hey guys I just thought I would want to share with you that I recently inherited a knife that was given to my grandpa by my great grandpa filo. they have both passed away a long time ago so my grandma thought it was time to get some of his hunting gear. in a box was 2 knives one that was forged and one made in the 70s by Solingen. right now im going to show you the one that was forged at least I think was forged.post-39113-0-07930400-1377813284_thumb.jpost-39113-0-18357100-1377813289_thumb.jpost-39113-0-56093100-1377813294_thumb.jpost-39113-0-92887600-1377813299_thumb.jpost-39113-0-05779000-1377813304_thumb.j sorry if the pictures turn out weird im working with an ipod lol

Neat old knife, looks well taken care of.  That's one reason I love bladesmithing.  One day, if the Lord tarries, a desendant will tell the story of how there ancestor (me) made this knife.

That's a fine knife Eric. Forged or not it's a family heirloom and worth honoring by passing it on to your own son or daughter when the time comes.

My wife bought a ring at a garage sale for a quarter. While she was paying the lady told her the ring had belonged to her grandmother.

Very, very sad.

This is a MUCH better story!
