Here's my blade for the day. It's a Landers Electric Slicing Knife frow the 1960's (i think).
18" long with 9" blades
POB : somewhere behind the blades
ok I didn't get it from Albion, I just used the box as a background.
enjoy the day,W

I'd feel less guilty about using that to carve the turkey than my Talhoffer. Razz BTW, what did the big white box once contain?

If Albion did make carving knives, they'd have the Squire line for turkey cutting reenactors and the Next Generation line for folks who actually cut real turkeys. Eek! Laughing Out Loud I wonder if there's an Oakeshott typology for carving knives? Razz

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Happy .

Turkeys are usually lightly armoured, so a good thrusting tip isn't necessary. Broad shearing cuts are more effective. Razz Laughing Out Loud

Excellent documentation of both the cutting and thrusting ability of the Type XVI ! Laughing Out Loud

Today's blade is The Laird. Very effective against a lightly armored opponent with slow reflexes.
Merry feasting to all, W

William,

This is a classic post. Too bad we do not have a place to place comic posts!

I have to say my eyes were drawn from the sword to the prime rib instantly.... looks like it was very good!

We do not get Thanksgivings off here in the UK (strange eh). So we will be doing it with a numebr of friends on Saturday. No swords here to cut the turket up with but I have one somewhere of domestic use for the sword if I can find it I will post it.

That was a fairly old comment, so I think it is about three Aprils ago, now. I was refering to Albion's April Fool's article in which they introduced Peter Johnsson's typology of swizzle swords (those little plastic things they put in drinks).

It is not bad for William C. Champlin to use a sword to slice a turkey instead of a knife. What do you guys think? Want to try?
