This old blacksmith made scraper, chopper, came from Austria with the great grand parents of the woman who sold it to me. She swears it was made not later than 1810. I’ve never seen one this large, or made quite this way. It’s just huge.
Blade is just a hair under 14” long, 2” 7/8 wide, handle just over 17”, overall about ~ 9 high if standing.
As always we are happy to combine shipping, as well as take back pieces if you are not satisfied. (Please see return policy)
Looking for that special, flashy cast iron set? Get a load of this one. This is a chromed Griswold set with the #3 (p/n #709), #6 (p/n #699) and #8 (p/n 704) along with matching high dome skillet lid (p/n #1098). This is a beautiful set which both shines and has good cooking surfaces. These are large block Erie Pa USA pans. They date from 1939-1944. They feature both types of Griswold chrome plate, the shiny flashy one, and the matte finish Griswold called silverlight. Chrome on all of these are good and can probably be buffed or polished to an even better shine, but I didn’t have time to do this.
Marked with the Griswold Large Logo marked “Cast Iron Skillet” Erie PA., U.S.A” along with the respective model #.
# 3 Diameter 6” 1/2
#6 Diameter 9” 1/8
#8 Diameter 10” 1/2
Lid Diameter 10” 3/4
No cracks or chips. #6 and #8 both sit dead flat. #3 has a slight wobble. All have excellent cooking surfaces with minor imperfections. With use all should come out as glassy smooth users.
Cleaned (lye method) interiors seasoned with non-GMO canola oil (2-3 coats).
As always we are happy to combine shipping – and if you don’t love it we’ll take it back (Please see the return policy on the website for terms and conditions).
Can you imagine making your morning toast using this old frontier/hearth toaster? Slice your bread and put the slices into the rotating end piece, sit it down near your cookfire and wait until one side was done before turning the end piece 180 degrees to toast the other side. Pretty darn cool. This one predates the invention of the household stove in the 1830s. A blacksmith made piece, this probably belonged to a fairly well off family who had the wherewithal and room to own a gadget like this back at a time when most folks were toasting their bread in a skillet.
Sold unrestored in perfect working shape. This one would be great for historical reenactment, or used as a display piece.
$225 shipping included in price.

No cracks or chips, no scratches. Absolutely gorgeous! This is a wow holiday set.
Will be shipped FedEx, double boxed and with everything well wrapped in bubble wrap.

Ok, this lid probably belonged to an old camp oven made by an unknown maker. What makes this piece so special is the interior. Take a look at the inside of this lid. See all those weird pieces? Those weird designs? That’s all the evidence you need to know that yes – some manufacturers, didn’t just pour molten metal into their molds, but actually threw bits of scrap into the space and filled around it with molten iron. That would have resulted in the need to melt less iron, and use less fuel, or find less high quality ore. Basically it saved money.
Not surprisingly not a lot of lids like this seem to have survived. They probably by in large weren’t as structurally sound. It also makes pieces like this kind of neat and well worth collecting.
Aside from the raised #8,and the interior gate mark there are no indications as to who might have made the piece.
We cleaned the piece with lye, and coated with four fresh coats of non-gmo canola oil.

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.
