This outstanding vintage Forschner Damascus XXXX butcher knife was made in Switzerland with some of the finest steel ever affixed to a culinary knife. It is RAZOR sharp and beautifully balanced in the hand, with a hefty blade that's more than substantial enough to handle any job. Its curving, cimeter blade was designed to cut steaks or chops from a carcass or side of meat but knowing chefs use them to speed through any butcher's most demanding or most delicate cutting tasks. Sharp enough to shave a man's face, this knife MUST be handled with complete respect or it will speed through the careless user, landing him or her in the ER needing stitches.
If you've never before used a knife like this, you're in for a most pleasant surprise. As with all carbon steel blades it will rust if not properly kept dry, but takes a RAZOR edge like no other, and outperforms stainless steel in almost every way. You must wipe it down after each use but its beauty and superior performance are worth it. This knife has been used and sharpened but is undaunted in providing its lucky new user with heirloom quality for use and posterity.
Measures 17.75" long with a 12" blade, riveted onto a full and tapered tang, which is hafted to gorgeous rosewood handles that are now deeply and darkly patinated. Condition is very good with no problems--just some normal wear from many decades of proper, loving use.
It is RAZOR sharp, having been professionally edged for this sale and now far more keen than when it was new. An outstanding piece of antique professional grade cutlery, and an heirloom-quality piece for user and collector alike.Our store's inventory is searchable using the search field or may be browsed by clicking on categories, with each option found on the left side of the store's homepage.
