Default Griswold #14 Cracked Wt Handle

Found a griswold large block #14 today in great shape. Then, I seen it had a crack in the sidewall on both sides of where the handle attached. Otherwise, in great shape. They were still asking $300 for it. I guessing the weight of the skillet is too much when picking it up just by the handle. Thought I had the find of the year.

That's the most common place to find cracks on a skillet. Cast iron is very brittle and my guess would be that these cracks are from being dropped on the handle at some point in it's life. I wouldn't trust using a big #14 with cracks on both sides of the handle.

Same thing I thought especally at the price they had on it. Hard to see the cracks so they were probably waiting for a sucker.
