I absolutely love the patina on this vintage Erik Frost Mora!
Those different paint residues on the handle, the dark ferrule and blade paired with that stupendously sharp bevels and the original paper sheath with a very positive fit.
Check the detail shots!
The handle is super soft and I reoiled it of course.
Amazing steel that took one of the most wicket edges I've ever created!
Hollow ground to zero.
I adore vintage tools.
They carry the memory of gone times, craftsmanship, use and abuse inside them and often they were made to different standards than what we commonly know today.
