THIS KNIFE: IS A 4 1/2" COPPERHEAD LOCKBACK WITH MAGNIFICENT SELECT PEARL HANDLES IN MINT CONDITION OPENED: 7 5/8" weidmannsheil vintage knives
Story of Weidmannsheil knives      PRODUCTION OF WEIDMANNSHEIL KNIVES BEGAN IN 1892.  THEY WERE IN BUSINESS FOR 100 YEARS.  THE EMBLEMS WERE STAMPED WITH EITHER THE STAG HEAD OR THE BOARS HEAD.  THE STAG WAS FOR THE GERMAN MARKET AND THE BOAR'S HEAD FOR THE AUSTRIAN MARKET.      WEIDMANNSHEIL MEANS "GOOD HUNTING" TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH.      WILHELM WELTERSBACH WAS THE FOUNDER OF THE KNIFE COMPANY AND BUILT THE FACTORY.  THE LAST OF WELTERSBACH LINE OF CUTLERS DIED IN 1991 AND THE FACTORY WAS IMMEDIATELY CLOSED DOWN.  ALL OF THE EXISTING STOCK WAS PUT INTO STORAGE.      ALL OF THE WEIDMANNSHEIL KNIVES WERE, OF COURSE, MADE IN GERMANY.  THE FINEST KNIFE COMPANY IN GERMANY TODAY IS THE FREDRICK OLBERTZ CUTLERY COMPANY.  IN 1997, KURT GRONAUER, PRESIDENT OF FREDRICK OLBERTZ CUTLERY COMPANY CALLED A PROMINENT CUTLERY ENTHUSIAST IN THE STATES AND INFORMED HIM THAT POSSIBLY THE KNIVES MIGHT BE COMING UP FOR SALE.  HE IMMEDIATELY BOARDED A PLANE AND FLEW TO SOLINGEN, GERMAN.  THE TWO MEN WHO OWNED THE COMPANY AND ONE OF THE WIVES WERE DECEASED.  ONLY ONE OF THE WIVES REMAINED ALIVE.  ALL THE STORED KNIVES WERE STILL IN TACT.  WITH GRONAUER SERVING AS TRANSLATOR AND ASSISTING IN THE SELLING OF THE STOCK, ALL THE MERCHANDISE WAS SOLD.  ALL OF THE WEIDMANNSHEIL KNIVES I HAVE OWNED, I PURCHASED FROM THAT INDIVIDUAL UPON HIS RETURN TO THE STATES.
MUCH MISINFORMATION EXISTS ON WEIDMANNSHEIL KNIVES THESE ARE THE FACTS 1. WEIDMANNSHEIL KNIFE COMPANY ONLY MADE KNIVES IN GERMANY FOR 100 YEARS     ...BETWEEN 1892-1991. ANY KNIFE MADE OUTSIDE THOSE DATES IS NOT ORIGINAL- NOT VINTAGE 2. IF A KNIFE HAS A DATE ON THE REVERSE SIDE, IT IS NOT ORIGINAL-NOT VINTAGE. I HAVE HAD PEOPLE ASK ME WHEN ONE OF MY WEIDMANNSHEIL KNIVES WAS MADE. THERE ARE NO DATES ON THESE KNIVES. I ONLY SELL VINTAGE KNIVES. 3. SOME PEOPLE HAVE SUGGEST THAT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE STAG AND BOAR LOGOS COULD INDICATE AGE. THIS IS NOT TRUE; THEY WERE MADE SIMULTANEOUSLY . THE DIFFERENCE IS THE NATION IN WHICH THEY WERE SOLD. (SEE ABOVE). 4. WEIDMANNSHEIL VINTAGE MADE NO DAMASCUS STEEL KNIVES. I SEE ON THE INTERNET KNIVES THAT ARE MARKED WEIDMANNSHEIL GENUINE DAMASCUS KNIVES. THEY ARE NOT GENUINE VINTAGE. 5.SOME OF THE KNIVES BEING MADE AFTER 1991 ARE GOOD QUALITY, SOME ARE NOT. I WILL MAKE NO ASSERTIONS AS TO WHO MADE THEM.
6. BUY AND INVEST IN ORIGINAL VINTAGE KNIVES. BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHOM YOU BUY FROM AND WHAT THE REPRESENT TO YOU! WE STAND BEHIND OUR KNIVES
