Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: We take our photos in natural light outdoors and as a result there are sometimes reflections or shadows or glare shown in the blades.
In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. From the school of Bigger is Better, this beautiful antique bucher knife is nothing short of a stone-cold stunner, made in the largest size this maker ever made.Yes, it is truly THAT good. This outstanding antique knife has everything going for it one could possibly hope and more, and in terms of quality of materials, craftsmanship, size and condition, you'll find none finer. Marked on its hand-forged bullnose blade, UNIVERSAL, L. DOUBLE SHEAR STEEL, it was hand-forged from an early form of industrially produced damascus steel, in which steel rods were hammered, folded and refolded before being beaten into blades, a technology abandoned long before the beginning of the 1900's. As you'd expect from a hand-forged carbon-steel blade, it's capable of the finest degree of sharpness and to prove it, we've had it professionally edged for the purpose of this sale.
You can literally shave with its edge. It was constructed in a VERY rare and unusual configuration with a single, very oversized birdseye rivet holding its blade firmly affixed to its solid rosewood handle, ridged all the way around its circumference.
Mountaing men/fur trade re-enactors will love a knife like this not only for its beauty and utility, but also for its usefulness as a camp knife or even just for trade bait on your trading blanket come the next rendezvous. It was manufactured by Landers, Frary and Clark in New Britain, Connectcut under their Universal brand during their earliest years, as evidenced by its construction. It's in remarkably good condition, and, as the photos show, it has acquired a glowing patina produced by the passing of many years and the touch of many hands. Overall look and feel of this knife are excellent, even a bit better than it looks in photos. Obviously, this knife has considerable collector value, but it'd be a shame not to keep using it, if you're someone who has the need for a blade of this configuration.
If you've never used carbon steel knives before, you're in for a treat. Only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes using it a true pleasure you must wipe the knife after every use to avoid stains and rusting, but will be richly rewarded with superior performance! Measures 19.25" with a whopping 14" blade, perfect for breaking down a carcass, or any number of slicing cutting tasks in any kitchen or meat locker, from carving a Thanksgiving turkey to trimming and butchering your own livestock. Whether you're a chef, butcher or simply someone who appreciates fine cutlery for any purpose, here's an excellent opportunity to upgrade your arsenal with something truly special, an instant heirloom in even the most discriminating collection.
