O.M.O.R J-208 Japan Melon Tester

Post by aaron1956 » Sun Nov 10, 2013 9:29 pm

I picked this knife up at an antique store today along with an old Colonial knife. (posted pics of it on the Colonial collectors forum.)
Not sure how collectible they are but I just like the melon tester style. I have a Case 1st production run my wife got me last year and that the first time I had even seen a melon tester knife!
What was interesting to me on this knife was the "chisel grind" on the blade. You can see in the pics.

Nice! Sharpen her up and it'll be the best letter opener you ever had.
