FINE Vintage TAYLOR EYE WITNESS Sheffield Sabatier-Style Carbon Steel Chef Knife
Please read our Terms below for details. 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 superb antique Sabatier-style chef knife was actually made in Sheffield, England, by Taylor, one of that city's most storied makers of supremely fine cutlery. This knife is an exception to prove the British rule that even the French can get some things JUST right. And just right it will be for you, too, if you're someone who values only the finest tools in your kitchen and are looking for knives that complement your already prodigious cooking skills. Condition is outstanding, with a beautifully patinated blade that shows none of the abuses often inflicted by careless users or Neanderthal sharpeners. Especially rare is its rosewood handle to be found so solid and tight without a single hairline that so commonly plagues the sides of the handles on knives of this construction.

The knife has a pleasingly uncommon profile, as you can see in the photos, with a birdshead pommel even more pronounced than what we'd find on an actual French chef knife; some have even called it a cutlass-handle profile. Overall, its differences make it even more of a joy to use and to behold. There are few words which adequately describe it more than just plain Wow!

It was expertly hand-forged with its tang, flared bolster and blade all integral and of one piece, triple-brass riveted over a full and tapered tang with beautiful rosewood handle scales that are as warm to the touch as they are pleasing to bdhold. If you're someone who knows the FEEL of fine knives, you won't have to use this knife twice to understand what it's capable of, and you will experience nothing short of a revelation of performance. It is a DYNAMO in the kitchen, and your hand will BLAZE through jobs in the kitchen (if you're like me, you'll start looking for things that need chopping). Like all fine vintage carbon steel knives, it will rust if not carefully kept dry during use, but you'll be richly rewarded for your trouble with superior slicing in every way, shape and form.

Carbon is also easier to rehone and does not require a blacksmith's skills to achieve the finest possible edge. This is a VERY highly treasured knife in the serious chef's kitchen, and hard to find because NO chef ever gave one up willingly at least not while he or she was alive!

Of course, as you'd expect, it's the ideal tool for chopping, dicing, mincing and reducing piles of herbs and vegetables into smaller mounds of aromatic good ness for inclusion in your favorite recipes. It will also, like a slicer, shave WAFER-thin slices of charcuterie, tomatoes, onions, or anything else. It is very sharp and is ready right out of the box to work at the highest levels.

Here's your chance to acquire what you'll rightly come to think of as an heirloom. Measures a gracefully modest 13" with 8" blade--and by any measure this knife will come up BIG whenever and wherever you may use it.
