It possesses one of the finest carbon steel blades ever affixed to a handle for use in preparing food in Europe. After using it, you'll find there are few words which adequately describe its performance more than just plain Wow! It was expertly hand-forged with a VERY finely forged, slightly flexible blade, hafted onto the finest African ebony handle using the very old-fashioned Nogent style, which features a full and hidden, rat-tail tang and was named for the city in France where it was first developed industrially. 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.Condition is excellent with no problems of any kind and in one key way it's better than when it was new, having been professionally edged for this sale by the good folks at Ross Cutlery in downtown Los Angeles, the best in the business. It's made in a nice EXTRA-EXTRA-LONG size, measuring 17.25" overall with 12.25" blade. In this size, it's capable of waferizing even the larges roast beast on a single stroke or dispatching into boneless fillets even the largest prize-winning seamonster. It just shines in performance.
This knife is a model of beauty, functionality and craftsmanship and is rare to be found at all, but to be found like this, so beautifully preserved, is nothing short of remarkable--RAZOR sharp upon arrival and VERY easy to keep it that way. The entire piece has been smoothed over by the passing of many years and the touch of many hands--the truest testament to its usefullness over a LONG period of time..With love and an occasional coating of non-toxic mineral oil, it will continue to deliver another few lifetimes of outstanding service over time. As with all carbon steel blades it must be kept dry to prevent rusting but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superior performance it delivers, as well as its ease of edge maintenance, as any veteran user can readily confirm. Like all hand-forged knives, it enjoys maximum balance in the center of your hand, where it belongs and when you use a knife like this, it feels like an extension of your hand, not a mere object that you're holding. It's superb aesthetics are matched by it's performance.
