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. Please read our Terms below for details. This is a VERY rare find, offered here in excellent, never used condition complete with its original protective blade scabbard from the factory, having lain in storage for well over 60 years. Made in Thiers, France, this SUPERB chef's paring knife is a classic design for which you will find no limit of uses.Its clipped point is ideal for cutting the eyes out of potatoes or the stems out of tomatoes. It dates to the 1950's and is a tiger in your kitchen. It bears the "Ekco Ancienne Maison" label and is guaranteed 100% of Sabatier manufacture. It comes from Sabatier's retired upscale "La Trompette" line of cutlery, one of the finest ever produced anywhere by anyone. The companies even used similar logos and identical model numbers for their corresponding products. As the photos show, it's magnificently hand-forged in a one-piece stainless steel blade/bolster/tang construction, over the highest-quality black composition handles, warm to the touch and easy on the eyes. It's a transitional design, with both rivets and anchored in the Nogent-style using a tang-pin inserted from the bottom (later versions of this knife has no tang-pin visible at bottom of handle). The fit and finish of its blade and handles is exquisite.
Like a true French knife, it has a rounded, slightly elongated bolster between blade and handle to allow maximum control with the fingertips (German knives have never adopted this design, which is yet one more reason why knowledgeable chefs prefer French knives). It's a great design and you'll know very soon after using it why. It's flexible, sharp and can perform just about any lighter duty in any kitchen, amateur or professional. When you use a knife like this, you know instantly it belongs there, in your hand. Its superb aesthetics are matched by it's performance.
Measures 7.75" long with a 4" blade. Whether you're an amateur or professional chef, you know how important the finest cutlery is to your state of mind while cooking.
