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. This beautiful old chef's butcher knife was made in Massachusetts by Russell in their Green River Works with an extra stiff, extra strong blade that is sturdy enough to take into the field as a hunting knife. Its makers marks are clearly visible on its blade and on its finger-guard but even if it wasn't we could spot this knife as being a Russell knife, as evidenced by its finger guard at the bolster--one of their signature design elements.
Most knife with these guards began their lives in processing plants in the meat-packing industry, and for dressing and trimming meats there is none finer. But most chefs and butchers recognize the value of bullnose knives like this as being useful for so much more, from making sandwiches to slicing birthday cake and everything in between.
Of course, one needn't be a chef or butcher to fully appreciate it. In fact, serious fishermen and hunters have been stealing these from chefs and butchers since they first were forged, lo so many years ago! Whatever you use it for, its finger-guard riveted atop its wooden handle will help keep your fingers where they belong--on your hand.
Remarkably, I don't think it has ever been used. Its carbon steel blade still shines like stainless and its factory edge has never been sharpened. In short, condition is OUTSTANDING.
Handle scales are beautifully mellowed beechwood of the highest quality, hafted atop the knife's full and tapered tang using the old-fashioned iron pin pattern. It's ready to serve several useful lifetimes of service.
It comes with a fine 10.25" blade (it's 15.25" overall)--beautifully balanced in the hand, with an incredibly comfortable grip. Whether you are a professional or amateur chef or someone who likes to dress and butcher your own fish, game or livestock, you'll instantly come to love this as one of your very favorites.
