In short, this is what a REAL Sabatier Thiers-Issard chef knife is all about--far better than anything on the modern market. Its hand-forged carbon steel blade is fast and thin compared to most German-made knives but sacrificing NOTHING in the way of strength; even at its tip, which is quite thin, there is only a slight bit of flexibility--a sure hallmark of the finest, most highly-skilled hand-forging.With a blade measuring 9-7/8, " the knife is 14.75" overall, the quintessential French chef knife size. It's hafted with ebony handles of the finest quality, triple-brass riveted over a full and tapered tang--warm to the touch and very easy on the eyes. Though well over 50 years old, the fine, carbon steel blade on this knife is remarkably well-preserved and full, still RAZOR SHARP enough to shave a man's face, having been professionally edged for this sale. Like all carbon steel knives, it must be kept dry, even during use, but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superb edge maintenance and performance offered by carbon steel, as any experienced chef or butcher over the age of 50 can confirm.
Miraculously, its handles are full, tight and completely free of the hairlines that so often plague vintage knives. Most chefs will need to shake hands with this knife only once to recognize it as one of their best friends in the kitchen and most collectors would be thrilled to have such a knife as the centerpiece of any collection. Unlike more modern versions, it is stamped with the elephant logo on both blade and handle, as you can see in the photos.
Never has there been a more welcome thing to find on a chef knife--truly the brand of quality! What makes this knife so special, however, is its balance in your hand and its relative light weight, which enables it to speed through your workday in the kitchen like a long-lost sixth finger reappearing suddenly on your hand! Its RAZOR sharp is ready to show you a whole new world of performance in chopping, mincing, dicing and in any utility work your kitchen can muster.
A great opportunity for yourself or a lucky loved one's kitchen knives to take a giant step toward the sublime!
