The price was right.
9.5 inches overall length, width of blade 1.75 inches.
There is an ovoid logo on the front. The bottom line reads:
“best tool steel” or “rest tool steel” and there may be a letter before the B or R.
Top line: has “ja” in the early part and “an co.” at the end.
This is sounding like a crossword puzzle discussion!
Once we know the name, I’d like to know your opinion of the quality of the tool.
I wire brushed the steel and it is pitted but can be saved. The handle is likely toast. Or would you pack the cracks with sawdust-charged epoxy? And glue on a cap?
