    I know I shouldn't have, but I bought myself a birthday present this year.
    Needs a little work, but basically sound.

    Grats & Happy B'day Joan.
    Who's the maker ? Can't make out all the name. I'm guessing it's not Friedrich Fronkenshteen ?
    It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so..

    Haha - Its Friedelko printed the box satin lining, and Friedel Koch Haans Solingen on the tang. Patina spotting across most blades and a couple of rough edges, plus the warped scales that you can see, but no broken blades and all 7 days, so I was pretty pleased.

    Thank for that. At this stage I'm not touching them- would like to try to keeping the originals and re-warping them back again rather than having new scales made, but we will see what happens when restoration time comes around. Priority at this stage is to ensure no further corrosion.
