But it is perfectly marked as you can see in the photos, proving that it was made in Thiers, France by Sabatier in their fine old Jeune series with the grape-cluster and letter K with a crown logo. This was the only maker who produced Sabatier knives with this very unique design. If you've been wondering what one of the rarer vintage Sabatier chef knives might look like, you've just gotten a glimpse.
This superb quality chef knife is an exceptional find by any standard, coming here in one of the smaller and hardest to find sizes, measuring 10.25" long with a 5-7/8" blade. It's an ideal light-duty piece for most users or a true godsend to any user with a petite hand. Either way, it's ideal for chopping, dicing, mincing and generally making your cooking life a joy.
Obviously, its most outstanding feature is the incredibly beautiful rosewood handles pinned with old-fashioned birdseye rivets over its full and fatted tang in a very unusual pattern that features heavy carbon steel bolsters at both ends. I date the piece to the 1880's-90's, though it could be even older than that; the fatted tang preceded the tapered tang in the evolution of hand-forged technology, though there were plenty of excpetions and overlaps. The rosewood is, as you can see from the photos, beautifully figured, weathered and patinated, without any of the condition problems that so often bedevils these knives--just 100% whole and wonderful. An heirloom-quality piece in heirloom condition and the kind of knife that user and collector alike will be proud to pass down to your progeny.
