It has been used by a professional chef who recently retired, and as such it has some wear and some scuffing from hasty honing but before he traded it to us he gave it a RAZOR sharp edge with waterstones and as such it's now FAR sharper than when it was new. Over the last year I've had several requests for more knives of this Sabatier/Forschner pedigree, and here's your chance to get one of the most fundamentally useful and beautiful ones ever made. In any serious kitchen, this is general thought of as The Knife.
" With its BIG 12" stainless steel blade (17.25 overal), it's a knife that all chefs rely upon to chop, dice and mince vegetables or herbs, but invariably call into duty to just about everything else, too. It comes with a rounded bolster in the style of the classic French knife and allows pinpoint control. Combine this with it's stout and sturdy blade, and you've got a true workhorse. Comes with a fully-forged stainless steel blade/bolster/full tang construction, with butternutwood handles triple-riveted firmly in place--warm in the hand and easy on the eye.It is still more than capable of providing a few lifetimes of outstanding service for you and your heirs. Best of all, the knife was made prior to the 1987 conversion among European cutleries from using virgin steel on their best knives to using recycled. The difference is real, and the tiniest amount of plastic contamination in a steel blade can result in failure--i. Breakage--and I've had it happen to me more than once with modern knives.
