Actually, an estate auction. It was the usual knick-knack stuff, beat up furniture, some tools that went for way too much money, etc. I got around to the kitchen items and saw the requisite Chicago Cutlery block with a out-of-place black handle in the mix. Hmm... Sabatier... discolored 10" blade... this could be good. I sat back and waited as the auctioneer says, "Your pick of a box on this table." A woman ends up with a $9 bid and grabs the knives. I walk up to her and ask, "Could I buy one of those knives from you for $5?" She says, "Sure, I just wanted the Chicago Cutlery anyway." So what do I have? Handle has 4 stars above the name, followed by what looks to be an elephant. Any thoughts? Thanks to all.
