Bernal Cutlery’s Josh Donald offers appraisals of vintage and antique knives, both individual pieces and large collections, including for auction houses. Appraisals include history and current approximate value, are available by email only, and begin at $10/knife.

Please email to arrange for an appraisal; make sure to include pictures of each knife, front and back, clearly showing makers mark if possible.


Trade Ins

If you have high quality cutlery that you don’t use anymore, in any condition, you can trade in for store credit. Drop them off anytime in either shop (allow for a few days for us to work up a quote).

If you live far away, send an email to with a few photos!
