A heartwarming surprise
The two knives here qualify for antique status. The larger one belonged to my grandparents and I'm told it was handmade. The smaller one belonged to my mother-in-law. Over the years, every time I was in her house, when she was in the kitchen, she almost always was using that knife. When she died back in the early 90's, I placed my claim to it!
Both of these knives have sentimental value to me. It wasn't too long ago that I wondered where they were. I knew they were not lost - I would never allow things that valuable to get lost. "They are probably in a box out in the shed," I thought.
Today I tackled my pantry. I ended up tossing expired canned goods, almost empty containers of this and that. Suddenly I had room to find things! There in the back corner, was a small 3 drawer organizer. Opening the drawers, I found these knives!
They have long since retired from use, but they will always be special to me.
