I picked up a Lamson knife from a yard sale recently. It appears to have gone through hell,
but appears to be a decent knife from a decent company. Wood handle, 8", Chef knife.
Heavy as hell, and probably German steel from what I've read.
It has no bolster; which I like, but seems odd considering the knife. Handle
is in decent but worn shape, so I might need to refinish it by light sanding and staining it.
Best route of doing this?
The back of the knife blade had some odd metal defects as if it was hit with a hammer or tossed around,
but I've sanded that and it is fine in that regard. Been working on putting a new edge on it and sharpening
it considering it was nearly unusable in terms of sharpness at time of purchase.
Anyways; opinions on Lamson?
