Please read our Terms below for details. Listen: This knife had a crack on each side of its handle but we filled them with super-glue and sealed them. It's an OLD piece, too, and one of the finest chef knives either of us will ever hold. Don't delay--this one won't be here long.
This is a superbly crafted piece in remarkably well-preserved condition. Made in Germany by Wusthof sometime in the 1940's, this outstanding piece was made with a hand-forged carbon steel blade with integral blade/bolster/tang construction, gorgeously grained ebony handles triple riveted onto its full and tapered tang. At some point in its history a previous owner reinforced its handle with a single copper pin, probably to tighten it. Though it still retains most of its original factory shine, like stainless steel, it's blade is made of beautiful carbon steel--INCREDIBLY sharp now--and will hold a razor's edge, with relatively easy honing. Wusthof, Solingen, Germany (with trident logo), predating the industry's conversion from virgin steel to recycled and representing a level of craftsmanship and quality that are now lost to the economic realities of our age.
It is an incredibly fine and well-balanced knife that surpasses just about anything else from Germany in the modern era in terms of feel and performance. At 17.5" long with 12" blade, the knife is every chef's best friend in the kitchen when it's time to chop, dice, and slice large quantities of vegetables, fruits, meats or anything else into neat, bite-sized morself for inclusion in your finest recipes.If you've never used a carbon steel knife before, you're in for a treat. Experienced chefs know that only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes cooking a true pleasure you must wipe the knife after every use to avoid stains and rusting, but will be richly rewarded with superior performance! This knife is perfectly balanced and will make you wonder why you suffered for all these years without one. When you hold a knife like this it feels like an extension of your hand, not like something you're simply holding.
Whether you are a professional or amateur chef, you'll instantly come to love this magnificent vintage knife as one of your very favorites. Also will make an exceptionally surprising gift for the discriminating chef on your list.
