Every once in a while we're able to offer a truly exquisite piece of antique cutlery and this is one of those times--on steroids. This singularly beautiful paring knife was made as a premium-quality piece probably more than a hundred years ago yet is found here in absolutely excellent condition with no problems of any kind. It comes from one of the oldest Sabatier brands, the Sabatier K line, which is still in business though it has been many, many decades since they even thought about making anything as fine as this.
As you can see it incorporates one of their oldest logos, with crown atop the letter K. Blade is hand-forged carbon steel of the finest quality, professionally edged for this sale and now RAZOR sharp in a way that very, very few knives ever can be. It has a full and tapered tang, as you can see, with beautifully colored natural horn handle scales hafted over it using three old-fashioned birdseye style rivets made with steel inside of brass.
The non-traditional shape of this handle is curving and fits the hand perfectly. Just look at it--a thing of great beauty and truly a work of the cutler's art.
To say the least, this knife is still as effective in use as it is beautiful and as highly collectible as it is it would be a shame not to use it on a daily basis if you're a serious cook or chef. As with all carbon steel blades it must be kept dry to prevent rusting and it will discolor with time and use, as is normal, but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the brilliance of performance it will deliver and by the ease of edge maintenance it will offer. Unlike with today's overly-hardened and embrittled stainless blades you won't have to be a blacksmith to keep it sharp and it won't shatter if used or dropped (or probably even if abused). It's the ultimate paring knife for anything from peeling and paring to slicing up an onion or even making sandwiches.At 8-7/8" long with a 4.75" blade it's a larger parer and will be a new favorite in the collection of most chefs. To any chef with a petite hand it just might be a godsend for use as a main chef knife.
By any measure this is an heirloom-quality piece for user and collector alike and easily the kind of knife that can be the centerpiece of most collections.
