Two Saturdays ago, I had the exquisite pleasure of examining some stunning knives at my booth at the Farmer’s Market. A local gentleman brought by some knives for me to review. When he set his bag down, a lion’s head handle was poking out of the bag and distracted my attention from a sharpening customer and immediately grabbed me. I was shocked to see the knives that were pulled from the bag. Below are some of the pictures that I took of the collection. I was shocked even more when the collector informed me that this is only a representative sample of his collection. Very nice. You never know what whill show up at the Farmer’s Market.
I will be back at the Farmers Market in Waxahachie from 8:00-1:00. Bring your knives, scissors and other edged tools. As always $5.00 a knife. I hope you see you there in the morning!
