  1. I've seen that mark before......If I recall correctly, its Czech made from the early 1920's or so.
  2. I have several Knife related books for sale.... If they don't sell here I'll put them on EBay... 1. Moran Fire & Steel by Holter...$200 2. Master of the Forge...(about Moran)...$175 3. The Antique Bowie Knife Book by Adams, Voyles & Moss....$400 4. Damaszener Stahl by Sachse (in German)...$375 5. Japanese Swords & Sword Furniture in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston...by Ogawa..(rare book)...$500 My prices are based off of a book search site....If I'm way off on the prices, let me know.... Reasonable offers considered...Interesting trades as well...
  3. I have a KMG rotary platen for sale.... It has been run for a total of ten minutes.... There is no wear at all on the belt.... Tooling arm included will fit a KMG or a Bader B3.... Asking $375 shipped to the lower 48.... Oops...Looked up the new price on these...$473 plus shipping...So I lowered the price.... PayPal or USPS money order only... Questions?...E-Mail...
  4. John, I agree with you about the paint job but I'm laid up and cant do anything about it.....hell, I cant even make it out of the house....
  5. For anyone interested, I lowered the Anyang 33 to $2600.....
  6. I know it looks rough....That wonderful Chinese paint is not very durable.....I saw some cracks in the paint and when I touched it, big chunks fell off in my hand.....So I started to strip it.....Thats as far as I got....
  7. Well, I've reduced my hammer again.... $3000.....Local pick-up.....Located in Delaware.... If someone wants this shipped, I'll strap it to a pallet....The rest is up to you.....Figure 800 pounds Shipping weight.... Runs great.....Has drawing dies on it...... I started to strip it for a new paint job.....thats why it looks like it does..... Runs on 220 volt single phase.... Fabricated steel stand..... Questions?....E-mail..... Thanks for looking......
  8. I once asked Bob Lum about the design of a knife he had on his table......He said that he picked up a bar of steel and ground away everything that didn't look like a knife..... So our individual expression of what we do makes a difference.....We could get by with simple form equals function, but how much fun would that be?......Look at the Edo period of sword furniture....Utility with art..... Bill Moran said we aren't doing anything with knives that hasn't been done before.....The materials change a little, but what we do with them says the most..... Just my opinion......Tradition
  9. Howdy, I sat with Henry at his table at the Vegas show In 83 or 84 for about an hour.....It was in the old Sahara when they had the Gun show in one room and the Knife show in another.....At the time, I was about one year into an aprenticeship with a rather notorious knifemaker from the Pacific Northwest..... Henry was not social by any means, but if you hit upon a topic of interest, he would talk freely.....I think that part of the problem back in those days was the lack of information out there.....There were not alot of knifemakers around, and the free-flow of information just didn't
  10. Press is Sold pending funds......Thanks to all who inquired....
  11. I have one Burr King Grinder for sale..... It's the Knifemaker model and takes 2x72 belts.... The motor is 1 1/2 hp wired 120v single phase......
