I love going to flea markets. Especially to First Monday in Canton, TX where you can find all sorts of great old stuff. I’m always on the look out for old knives to refurbish and resell or give as gifts. I really like the old Dexters, ForgeCrafts and Sabatiers, but they are becoming harder and harder to find. I went to Trade Days in Fredericksburg, TX this month and saw some old knives a lady was selling knives and cleavers. I looked at the prices and thought “This lady is crazy.” I had to take a photo. On her table are two cleavers for $155 and $185. But the real tragedy is the butcher knife at the top for $245. Cleavers are getting ever more expensive and it’s hard to find an old one for less than $75 these days, but this is double that. Anyhow, stay on the look out for old knives, but don’t expect to get prices like this for them. You may have to click on the photo to see the actual prices on the knives.
