They are "Nicks" cooks knives, one is a XXXNick, it has the 1/4 inch thick blade, and is really a cleaver, the other is quite thin stock and is a great carver/slicer.

They were a special run, and as the rumor goes, the thick ones were a mistake. But they really are a great kitchen chopper.

Thanks bud!! Man, finally the stars aligned and a Mastiff is coming home to Papa, ha! grin


HK,
Check the blade length when it arrives, it might be Rat Daddy, not a Mastiff.
Are you going to need a sheath for it? wink (have both...)

I took a look and think it is a bit short for a Rat Daddy, just the looks of it, it is a Mastiff.

Here are the three of them together. There's not a lot of difference between the Mastiff and the Daddy, in length.

You're probably right Ian, I've seen the pic on my phone.

I am most certainly going to need a sheath for it Elof, so if you're offering, I'm accepting smile I'll double check the length when it comes in, just to be sure.

Thanks Ian. I don't believe I had ever seen the Nicks. They made me think of preparing ribs for the grill grin

Mr. Magoo, the quite achiever might give all of us a shock. grin


Believe it or not, I don't have many old Swamp blades. I think my Hairy Carry and my M9LE are the oldest. Maybe my Ratweiler. Or the Rat Trap.

HK, I need to spread my magnificent skill around wink (pity there is no rolling & laughing icon to use here!)

With the investment in tools I might as well try and sell something... As an added bonus to you, with the crappy exchange rate, it'd cost you 25% less to get stuff from Au now.

If you're interested shoot me a PM.
