Welcome Home

HI ALL, GLAD TO HAVE FOUND THIS SITE. I HAVE A SMALL COLLECTION OF ALL TYPES OF KNIVES AND BAYONETS. . I CAME ACROSS THIS ONE RECENTLY, IT IS AN VERY OLD KITCHEN CARVER,M  IT IS STAMPED JACTON, I SUPPOSE IT COULD BE JACION, BUT OTHERWISE IT HAS A LOGO WHICH LOOKS LIKE A PEAR ON IT'S SIDE!!!  DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR TO ANYBODY. LET ME KNOW BECAUSE I WOULD LIKE TO PUT A HISTORY AND AGE ON IT AND PUT IT FOR SALE. THANKS IN ADVANCE. DN

THANKS LEFTY, I WILL MOVE FORWARD ON THAT INFO. IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT MAY BE FRENCH AS WELL, JUST BY THE NAME AND THE PEAR. ANYONE WHO IS INTEREST GO AHEAD AND MAKE AN OFFER. IT IS DEFINITELY A CARVER, NO MAJOR RESHAPING HAS OCCURRED. AS WELL I HAVE ANOTHER INTERESTING PIECE FOR SALE. THIS ONE IS MADE BY WILLIAM BECKET & CO. I DATE IT IN THE LATER PART OF THE 1800'S, IT HAS THE REAL DEAL STAG HANDLE WITH A NICELY SHAPED BLADE--ALL IN GREAT SHAPE. THE SHEATH LOOKS TO BE A LATER ADDITION, BUT FITS NICELY, I WOULD LIKE TO GET $175.00 FOR THIS ONE

Thanks for adding the photos AND the comments! I've been looking around online a bit but I haven't been able to find anything.

From your photos, I'm able to say one thing for certain: this is a French or French-style knife. Without a better shot of the blade, I can't tell if it's a carving knife or a chef's knife that has been sharpened many, many times & ground down in the process. But that handle is definitely in the French style.

Because of the French style, I am wondering if "Jacton" is really "j'Acton", as in, somehow related to manufacture in a place named Acton (loosely translated).

There are towns named Acton in both Quebec and Ontario, Canada, & there's a fastener company (nuts, bolts, etc.) named Acton in L'Horme, France.

I'm speculating here, but from the script on the knife, & the stylized pear, I'm guessing it was made in the 1950's or 1960's. By the way, "pear" in French is "poire", & "knife" is "couteau".

I hope this helps! And I have to say that I really like that pear logo.

Agreed!  We have a very competent set of individuals here, but often photos are simply necessary for knife identification.

Dennis, a photo, showing the tang stamp, and any other printing, would certainly be helpful.
