UP FOR BID IS THIS OLD HICKORY, SHAPLEIGHS HAMMER FORGED KNIFE SET. FOUR OF THE KNIFES ARE STAMPED SHAPLEIGHS HAMMER FORGED 1843 TO 1934. THE FIFTH KNIFE BLADE IS NOT STAMPED AND WAS MOST LIKELY A REPLACEMENT. IT IS AN OLD HICKORY KNIFE, BUT YOU REALLY HAVE TO LOOK HARD TO MAKE OUT THE OLD HICKORY BRAND ON THE HANDLE.. THE FIVE KNIFE WOOD CABINET KNIFE HOLDER WAS A AFTER THOUGHT, BUT HAS KEPT THE KNIFES IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. THE BOX IS OLD AND AND I TRIED TO GIVE A GOOD PIC OF THE PAPER ON BACK, I SEE NO DATE ON BOX. THE FLATS OF THE BLADES ARE CLEAN WITH JUST A SLIGHT SURFACE RUST AND T ON THE TOP EDGE OF BLADES, VERY MINUTE. THEY STILL HAVE AN EDGE I DARE SAY YOU COULD SHAVE WITH, I WOULD NOT CHANCE IT! THEY ARE EXTREMELY SHARP. IN THE 3RD PICTURE OF THE KNIFES THE SIZES ARE AS FOLLOWS --TOP TO BOTTOM - #1- 11 1/2" OVER ALL & BLADE IS 7".... # 2- 12 1/4" OVER ALL & BLADE IS 7 5/8".... #3 - 10 7/8" OVER ALL & BLADE IS 6".... #4 - 7 1/2" OVER ALL & BLADE IS 4".... #5 - 7" OVER ALL & BLADE IS 3 1/8" #5 IS THE KNIFE THAT IS NOT MARKED WITH SHAPLEIGHS LOGO ON THE BLADE. OLD HICKORY SET WOULD STILL BE GREAT IN THE COOKING AREA.. THEY DON'T MAKE'M LIKE THIS ANY MORE !

EMAIL ANY QUESTIONS... THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!!
