This is a cool old cast iron and steel can opener c. 1890. This one isn’t a mystery like the last one was, but it’s just as cool. But this fish head type can opener features a marked blade saying: “Belmont” Pat Feb 11, 1890.
Haven’t been able to find out a lot about this company, but it’s a very pretty piece. Iron handle is 6” long, steel blade protrudes another 1/4” beyond that.
Sold as is, as this is a collector piece, but it can be restored if you so desire.
$50 shipping included in price. Restoration would be extra.
here is another stove broiler, or maybe it was meant to be used on a grill(?). Heavy and rough cast – it features an interior that is just over 12″ x 7″ with a handle of just under 7″
There are a series of numbers on the underside of the handle but they are hard to read, (8868? maybe)
Oversized so shipping is a bit more.
Cleaned (lye method) and seasoned lightly with non-GMO canola oil.
$20 + $20 for shipping (included in price)
This is a working old Keen Kutter #21 grinder with attachments. Patented May 29, 1906. Mechanically sound, this piece is a great display item, but could easily be cleaned to get it back into usable shape.
Marked: KK 21, E.C. Simmons Keen Kutter U.S.A on one side. the other side is marked Pat May 29, 06 E.C. Simmons Keen Kutter U.S.A.
Sold as found.
$15 plus $13 shipping (included in price)
These are some pretty old case knives – both are marked Case with differing blade stamps, both of which seem to be from between 1920-1940 (please note this whole description is my best estimate based on the blade markings and history of the company – so feel free to ask questions) . One of them is the 9” 1/4 slicer with what appears to be a rosewood handle, half tang and a pair of brass rivets.
The other is a bit more unique. Handle appears to be bakelite, full tang – but hidden within the handle aside from the bottom of the tang which can be seen at the bottom of the handle. Handle is also unique – ergonomically designed, or the best guess at such a thing from when it was made.
Blades appear to be chromed carbon steel.
Both knives are in outstanding shape, razor sharp and ready to use.
$65 plus $10 shipping for the pair, or $35 each plus shipping.
another non-iron but cool item
This is an old vintage enameled metal thermal chest good for hot and cold food made by K & M (Knapp and Monarch) of St Louis. It’s a cool old piece of vintage that probably still works better than stuff made today. But this one really needs to on display somewhere – it’s just so cool.
Seals are old (hardly surprising) but this appears to still be fully functional.
18” 1/2 long x 10” wide, 14” tall.
This is being sold as is. Body has some rust, some scratches to the enamel – it looks as vintage as it is.
Can you imagine getting your deli items prepared with this old time hand cranked deli slicer? This is a piece which I bet could tell some stories. Admittedly I’m presuming this was made to slice meats and cheese based on my research, but it could easily have been for potatoes and vegetables.
features a counter clamp to fasten it in place, a rotary head that has four razor blade like blades, a hand crank for turning the rotary head and a push plate to guide your item to the blades and not risk those delicate little fingers. There definitely was some art to using one of these.
I find this one to be just an amazing little bit of historical ingenuity. While it’s perfectly usable, it would make an amazing display piece too.
Sold in as found condition (everything works).
$65 shipped (FedEx with insurance) for $25 additional we can restore it for you if you’d like (Takes 7-14 days before we can ship).
Some of you may not know this, but I love old kitchen knives. Old carbon steel blades were probably some of the best ever made, they stayed sharp, were easy to hone, and cut better than almost anything made today. Most professional chefs, love and pamper their carbon steel blades – especially as modern versions of these can be $150-400 each.
These have been cleaned, restored and sharpened professionally. As they are used they will develop a nice patina (will look a bit like a dulling of the blade).
This one is an old vintage butchering knife by an unknown maker. Overall length is 17″ 1/4 inches, 11″ 1/4 of that being blade. scales (handles) are very nice and clean. Blade is razor sharp.
Carbon steel knives do require a tiny bit more upkeep than stainless as they will rust or discolor if not cleaned and dried after use, but that’s even easier maintenance than cast iron so I have no doubts you are up to it.
Here are three Wagner Ware toys/miniatures dating back 85-110 years ago. In excellent shape, all original, not reproductions. Pieces any collector would love to have.

Second: Marked: Wagner Ware Sidney -0- skillet 4″1/2 diameter, another beautiful piece.
Lastly – and the most desirable: the fully marked “”Wagner” Sidney , 0 Pat’d Feb 22, 1910″ Waffle iron with base.
No cracks, chips or notable flaws. Please see pictures and ask any question that you’d like.

Counterfeit Griswold #0.
These come up now and again. Fake Griswold #0′s made because the collector value on a real one is fairly high.
This one is a fairly well documented fake pattern with the odd spacing and alignment of the “Griswold” name, crude casting and rough iron.
Marked: ”Gris wold” “Erie PA, U.S.A.”
For a few buck it’s an interesting piece to have.
This is an old smelting pot, by an unknown maker.
Only marking is a number 6 (or is it a 9?)
6″ diameter, 3″1/2 depth
While I don’t know what kind of things this one was used for it was difficult to clean and season – and I don’t think I’d use it for food preparation unless you tested it for lead first.
Because of that it’s really just a nice display piece.
Looks great, and primitive, shows marks from a mold repair (that is the mold that was used to make it had repairs and you can see the lines of that on the finished product – considered normal just in case you were wondering).
Features a wire bail and a heat ring.
Cleaned and seasoned.
