Is the silky feel and patina it has acquired over the years from the passing of many years and the touch of many hands. Best of all, it has been given a professionally applied RAZOR SHARP edge for the purpose of this sale and is far sharper than when new. Even for many veteran chefs this knife will present a refreshing world of performance.
This piece was made in Sheffield, England by one of that city's more storied cutlery companies, Joseph Elliot and Sons, which was founded in 1795. It comes in a highly-desirable size, measuring 13.75" long with 8-5/8" blade, permitting use by any size chef. If you've only used stainless steel knives until now, you will find a refreshing experience of oustanding performance in using a fine vintage carbon steel blade such as this.
Easier to hone to a razor's edge and easier still to keep it that way, carbon blades require the user to keep them dry to prevent rusting, but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superior performance provided. Knowledgable chefs and butchers alike have always preferred carbon to stainless blades, and once you've used one, you'll soon know why. If you plan on using this knife in your kitchen, I suspect you'll be very happy with its performance.
