"seed grade" knives and tools

david weaver
Somewhere between when I was a kid and now, apparently farming has turned into an occupation where people need to have expensive tools on the equipment they're using.

We still have a farm (my parents have partial ownership with some of their siblings). When I was a kid, most of the tools on machines were seed grade tools. That is, they worked OK to get you out of a pinch, and you didn't cry that much when they unintentionally got planted in a field.

I no longer hunt, but i had a foreign made seed grade skinner by remington that was pretty nice. Maybe I remember if fondly more because it was the right shape than because it was nice steel.
