Serco circa 1970

Just picked up a 10" Serco (Japanese '70s Sab clone). Well made, nice steel, my favored shape, but just a bit heavier in the waist than my Thiers-Issard Sab.

Not as slick handling as my Sabs, but very close, and certainly more agile in my hands than the Wustof Classic and other fine German blades I also own. Decent shape, too.

It won't replace my Sabatier, but it's a worthy backup and will be my knife of choice travelling or camping.

Thought some of you knife freaks might be interested in it. Sorry for the lousy picture, but it's the Ebay one and I haven't photographed it myself.

Interesting. Actually, it looks more like a 12" based on the proportion of the handle to the blade length. Is that handle smaller than a Wusthof's?

Yes. And I agree with you - the proportions are not classic Sab.

If the blade is 10" it must have a pretty dinky handle. Probably not a big deal if you use a pinch grip. That one's definitely "old school"! I'm not generally a fan of knives with a bolster but that's a nice one.
