My Aunt was in the process of discarding some of my Grandfathers things after his house was sold.

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAA! Hold on Auntie! I’ll take these 2 Items! (1/8” of Rust and Ruin on both Disston’s. Had to take them all the way down to Bare Metal and gently on the emblems. (Bolt Covers In Handles.)

Oh! The Disston Sale! UH OH! We’re a little late DAG NAB IT! ;}

Last summer I bought six at a yard sale with a couple of antique pipe wrenches for 5 dollars. Then I got close to a dozen for $2.50 at an auction. When it rains it pours. The nice thing is that the people who used to buy them to paint scenes on them seem to have disappeared. Enjoy.
