This beautiful vintage Sabatier chef knife was hand-forged in the 1950's in Thiers, France and comes from their very upscale "Jeune K" line of knives. It also bears the stamp of "Pampered Kitchen, " its American importer and retailer, who were responsible for bringing some very fine French knives to the USA. With a VERY sharp blade measuring 8" long the knife is 12-5/8" overall, ideal for large hand or small. It's hafted with rosewood handles of the finest quality, triple-brass riveted over a full and tapered tang--warm to the touch and very easy on the eyes; the kind of knife that can inspire as well as perform.
Though well over 60 years old, the fine, carbon steel blade on this knife is remarkably well-preserved and full; handles are solid and free of any cracks or other problems. 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. 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. What makes this knife so special, however, is its balance in your hand and its relative light weight (5.2 ounces), which enables it to speed through your workday in the kitchen like a long-lost sixth finger reappearing suddenly on your hand, 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!
