Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: We take our photos in natural light outdoors and as a result there are sometimes reflections or shadows or glare shown in the blades. In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise.
Made with a fully-forged and integral carbon steel blade/bolster/tang construction, it's a superbly crafted piece on par with the best ever made. Its horn handles are beautifully carved with a scalloped design and are fully intact, free of cracks, pinned in brass over the tapered tang. The entire piece has a great patina and looks pretty damned good for being well over 180 years old! It's stamped with its maker's name, but even if it was unmarked, there could be no disputing its origin--it's a Sheffield piece made by Samuel Frost--by virtue of its beauty and quality and unique handle construction. Even more than its beauty and condition, the most remarkable thing about the piece, by far, is its performance in the kitchen.
It is a VERY remarkable knife, indeed, waferizing onions, meats and anything else you'll put in its way. Blade is RAZOR SHARP, having been professionally edged for this sale and is now capable of bringing tears of joy to even the most jaded chef. Measuring 7.75" in length with a deft 3-7/8" blade, it's large enough for small slicing duty, but deft enough to be used for peeling, paring and other utility work. You know how difficult it is to come by fine, smaller chef knives in carbon steel, since most knowing chefs won't part with theirs until they're dead of the knife is worn out. Do your kitchen arsenal a favor and don't pass on this gem, which we guarantee will become an instant heirloom for user and collector alike.
