Frosolone Fix

Post by portlandmike » Thu Jun 13, 2019 3:35 am

After reading Paulo’s book Coltello A Scatto Antico I kinda fell for the old Frosolone style.. but even if I was lucky enough to find one I sure wouldn’t be able to afford it. Luckily we have JimBrown257 (JTK) who was able to make me these four beautiful knives for a very reasonable price. Each slightly different and that just makes them all the more special to me.

I just wanted to say thanks to Jeremy for creating these pieces that will be handed down in my family.

Mike

Mike, Those are really nice. Love the scales on all. Are they brass bolsters? Does he do N/S bolsters? Love the flatguards also.

That certainly speaks to the hand built nature of these fine pieces. Great work and wonderful set. Thanks for posting these pictures!

Very cool knives, and each one is unique.

What are they? Around eight inches OAL?

That second one down in the first pic is the 1084 steel that I was talking about the other day. I couldn't get the stamp as deep in that steel.

It will be interesting to see if the guy who does my sharpening mentions that one was any different

He does do amazing work without being snobby and arrogant.
