This outstanding antique slicing/carving knife was made by Russell in Massachusetts at their legendary Green River Works and if you want the finest possible quality in a kitchen knife, you need look no further. It has everything going for it in terms of materials, craftsmanship, conditon and most impressive of all, performance, exceeding the requirements of even the most delusional chef. It was hand-forged pre-WWI, and it's just as good as it gets. As you can see in the photos, it was made with a hand-forged carbon steel blade with a rolled, integral blade/bolster/tang construction, hafted with what I believe is a very old composite material (old ones like this were most likely made of compressed leather, wood-amalgam or hard rubber and my best guess is it's the last one). Its blade retains some of its original factory shine, but it is carbon steel, not stainless, and is guaranteed to discolor normally with use, and to rust if not kept dry.
Condition is amazing and handle is entirely free of the hairlines or other problems that so often are found in antique kitchen knives. It outshines and outclasses anything in the modern marketplace by a country mile. As you'd expect from this top maker, it was built to outlive its owner and then some.
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 anything put in its way. Its blade enjoys a classic slicing knife profile and there is NOTHING this beautiful piece cannot achieve in even the most demanding kitchen.
Measuring 13.5" in length with a deft 8.25" blade that is razor sharp, having been professionally edged for this sale and now FAR sharper than it was when it was new. Do your kitchen arsenal a favor and don't pass on this heirloom-quality gem. Also will make an exceptional gift for any hard-to-shop-for chef on your list!
