Antique MERIDEN CUT. CO. Chef's Bolstered Carbon Steel Paring Knife RAZOR SHARP

Please read our Terms below for details. It was made in Meriden, Connecticut by the cutlery company that bore its city's name, once one of the USA's finest makers of knives of every kind. The fact that its maker chose to name itself after the city in which it operated shows how corporations USED TO BE part of the community, how their interests and those of the towns in which their workers lived were inextricably intertwined.

The company went bust in 1925 after a few years of being run by Landers Frary & Clark, so this knife is no newer than 90 years old. This is not a reproduction but an original piece found here in remarkably well-preserved condition. Its sturdy, hand-forged carbon steel blade was handforged from the finest American cutlery steel with a full and tapered tang, which is beautifully hafted with gorgeous cocobolo rosewood handles, the likes of which are entirely gone from the modern market.

It's reinforced at the bolster and pommel in clad pewter and the overall appearance is stunning, as you can see in the photos. The entire piece is immaculate--no cracks or looseness at all. Measures 7-5/8" long with a 3.5" blade.

As you can see in the photos, it's a superbly crafted piece on par with the best ever made, with a great patina, as you can see, and its condition is astonishingly free of the cracks, nicks and other problems that often plague knives of this age. Even more impressive than its beauty and condition, the most remarkable thing about the piece, by far, is its performance in the kitchen, where it truly excels at waferizing onions, meats and anything else you'll put in its way.

You can literally shave your arm with its edge. Deft enough to be used for peeling, paring and other utility work, it's a knife made to please small and large hands alike in the pursuit of culinary perfection. 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.
