Nella knife - did I find a treasure?
Yesterday I picked up a large chef's knife at my local St. Vincent de Paul second hand shop for $3. It has Nella Cutlery stamped on the wooden handle; the blade looks to me like stainless steel and looks like it has been fairly badly sharpened. I sharpened it myself and it cuts beautifully. The tang doesn't run all the way to the end of the handle, but it does have two - looks like brass - rivets. So? Did I find a gem or a nothing?

Probably quite serviceable. I've picked up several industrial-grade knives like that sharpened-up nicely.The wood handles date them and make them problematic for commericlal use because of sterilization issues.Mine looked like props from Pirates of the Caribbean and I ditched them once the wood handles went. Enjoy.
