    My first knives

    Here are my original Forschner knives that I used in the late 60's and am still using today. 12", 10", 8" & 6". I've sharpened the 6" one so much, the blade width is less than 1/2 of what it used to be. 55 years and still going strong. I took the pic on an 18" x 24" disposable cutting board, that I've been using lately. I really like them for cutting and seasoning stuff, because the clean up is really easy. I've been buying them from Butcher BBQ and they are less than a dollar a piece. I would like to buy these wholesale, so we could stock them in our Ace Hardware stores with our own logo. Does anyone know who the manufacturer is and what their contact site might be? Click image for larger version  Name:	fullsizeoutput_558.jpeg Views:	0 Size:	55.2 KB ID:	820433

    Love that breaker at the top. Kinda remind me of old hickory knives.

      Back in the day the chain stores, Safeway, Albertson's etc. got their beef in 1/2's & 1/4's, and that breaking knife got plenty of action to break it down and get cuts ready for the counter.

      https://www.kitchenknifeforums.com would be a great place to ask if no one here can help.

        Forschner is the surname of the guy that imported Victorinox knives into the U.S.
        So I would start there if you haven’t found your answer.

        Yes, I know this is months old...but sometimes that’s what happens when one goes down the rabbit hole.
