    The largest one is 14" long. The stamp is difficult for me to read. It has a man running with a ladder I believe. If someone could tell me the maker I would be pleased. Them maybe I can figure out it's worth. Thanks for any help. I buy chef knives when ever I can. So I will be listing some from time to time for your viewing pleasure. Blue...

    No idea what it is, but nice haul! Are you just finding and selling?  Or doing any fun restorations?

    Mmmmm.  Nice.  Those should clean up very nice and make great user knives.  If you can 't find who the maker of "man with ladder" knife let me know and I'll make up a nice story to explain that marking. It will be pure fiction but will involve a fire department, a fire house, fire fighters, big red trucks, and it will be as good a story as any other (except the truth, of course).  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif

    Ah yes the steel was melted down from reclaimed firehouse poles.  In Brooklyn probably.

    Find and sell but keep a few. I may then sell them and save new ones.

    There is are a few regular sellers of vintage kitchen knives on ebay, don't recall names off hand but they are easy enough to spot, try asking one of them or ask on kitchenknifeforums.com

    Great idea.  Look up "ralph1396" on ebay... he's one of those guys and a very nice person too.

    I'm thinking the running ladder is an old Sab.

    Ahaha yes most likely, but the real conundrum is "which old Sab?"  I did a number of searches with various combinations of Sabatier+ knife + ladder +man + logo without luck.

    Ahrrrrg!  All I had to do was punch that into an ebay instead of google search.  Damn google, they're not as powerful as they think.  You cheated Panini!  ;-)~

    Who would have thought that eBay is as good or better than google or Wikipedia.

    I found the ebay listing also. When I took better pictures yesterday outside I could read Guelon and found it. Thanks for the help with my problem. The Trumpet knife had cosmoline or what ever they put on knives to protect them. I scrubbed this off and wala a beautiful knife appeared. I believe this one to be unused and now hair cutting sharp. 5 minutes of my life not wasted. Thanks again Blue...

    The hat he is wearing does not appear to be that of any firemans from the 1800's or beyond, it appears to be just a large cap with a visor.

    The smaller bolsterless Au Ritz looks nice.  Good looking haul.  I just got a 10" Sab in the mail today - very nice project.

    The last two show my arm hair I shaved off that you can't see. Some blew off the knife and their was not much left to shave off anyway. I have to quit doing that!
