Restoring 6 rusty old straight razor blades:
Visiting the flea market on the Main in Frankfurt I bought this nice leather roll bag filled with 6 old rusty straight razors. The price was so low that even just for the leather bag it would be a find. Coming home I first cleaned and oiled the bag and after that I cleaned and removed the rust of the razors. Two of them have no hallmarks and are also quite small like a 2/8 but the others (Bockla, two Peaso, Kobar) I will resharpen and use over the time. A bit of a progress is viewable right now of the images above more will show up soon.

Old tools, Anchor, Heart and Cross Axehead:
On the way to Konstanz I passed by a barnsale/fleamarket and for a couple of bucks I bought this bag of old tools. Needless to say I stored it away and picked it up on the way back. Today when I started to clean the axeheads I discovered this great hallmark of a cross, a heart and an anchor.

The meaning I found is:
The cross and anchor together were first used in Christian catacombs to represent hope based on the belief in Jesus Christ. The heart was added later to represent charity. The three symbols together represent the Christian tenants of faith, hope, and charity.

I really like this special axehead and now I have to find a well fitting piece of wood for it.

Pimped an old rusty kitchen knife:
Friday just after work I bought some essentials from my favorite farm shop. And they had a small fleamarket there, where I also bought this kitchen knife by “Friedrich Otto Stöcker Solingen”. Not a real beauty but rugged and easily to sharpen. It needed some some polishing, oil and a treatment on the wetstones.  Just fitting  wonderful to the other knifes.
