This knife was a very kind gift from my friend Yann, @Corto_Malt . It is a French regional knife known as a Langres. The handles are beautiful horn. According to Yann, it is around 30 years old. He bought it from one of the leaders of Les Vielle Lames; the old blades. There is a thread somewhere in here about that organization which seeks to preserve old knives and old ways. The Porch stretches all around the world, as do our friendships. Thank you Yann.
