    Just a quick question is an Ettrick blade and a wharncliffe blade the same. They certainly look alike.
    Thanks in advance.

    They can be straight or curved. Ettrick is the designation of the pattern (handle and blade design), not just the blade shape. There have been variations, discussed in this thread.

    That's what I love about this place. I'm always learning new stuff.
    Been a little slow here lately.
    Thanks guys ! ! !

    Heck, turns out I even sort of have one . . . sort of . . . my Case Swayback with the Wharncliffe blade.

    Got my first Sheffield knife recently. I've been told this is an "Ettrick" knife. It's very comfortable in the hand and makes a good apple peeling knife and pruning knife as well.

    - yes, I wonder @Wowbagger which came first, the Swayback or Ettrick........I’d suggest the latter
