Default Question On Notto Knives

I bought a Knife yesterday at a carving show, the vendor sold it as a Notto knife. She claimed that Rich Notto's brother took over the Co. after he passed away. Well after looking on the internet I came up with what looks exactly like what I bought, but under a different name ?? (see link ) Anybody have any info. on these knives. BTW it is a great knife.

STADTLANDER WOODCARVINGS

Dave

PS - It has a buflfalo with NY stamped on the knife.

If you download this file, which is the description of the knives:
Link to Chips Woodcarving Knives Selection Guide

The file is called something like "nottoknives.pdf" or something similar.
My point is the "notto" reference.

I'm sure that if you contacted Statdlanders they'd would give you the details.
Like most woodcarving suppliers they're a helpful and friendly operation.

I have no affiliation with Stadtlanders other than as I (satisfied) customer.

It looks like the handles have a Buffalo on them. If that is the case the knives were made by Dave Notto. Dave is a member of the Southtowns woodcarvers and Niagara Frontier Woodcarvers. Both clubs are in the Buffalo NY area and many of the clubs members use Daves knives. He's not only a great knife maker but a great carver as well.

I'm happy to know that someone is continuing Rich Notto's tradition. I chip carve with an original Notto knife and I absolutely love it!... I would recommend one in a heartbeat!

Thanks all for the info. From what I have found out it is deffinetly The late Rich Notto's brother. I could honestly say, this is a great knife, thin blade at the cutting edge, cuts great, stays sharp !

Had two Notto chip carving knives with the thin blade. Unfortunatly, My big hands snapped a blade. I carefully use the one that's left for small lettering only.
Great knives!
