Visited some thrift stores today hunting for sharpening practice knives. Bought some junk but also a pair I can't identify yet.
They are in a fitted walnut block with a stone built into the back. They are long chrome or highly polished hollow ground blades with brass pinned wood torpedo ahaped handles. They are marked as Case's Mr. and Mrs. Russet Line Process Pat 2147079
The longer Mr. knife looks likeit has never been used with some rust or patina along the edge. The handle has marks that look like a pliers was used to remove it from the block a long time ago.
The shorter but still long Mrs. knife looks similar with some very fine scratches near the handle. The handle is unmarked but dull and un finished or oiled.
Do any of you have insight to the mfr. date or if I should treat them as collectibles and preserve?
Thanks Mark but that's not a patent number, I believe it's Case's pattern number. I did find that it appears to be made from 1945-1950 as that is when they used the Case's trade name for their Kitchen knives. I'd like to learn more.
