Please read our Terms below for details. This is a rare and beautiful piece of exceptional quality: a beautifully preserved French chef's knife hand-forged and crafted in a timeless style that is uniquely French, with hand-forged carbon steel blade, triple pinned over beautifull, old-growth rosewood handles. Even more remarkably, this knife has NEVER been used, only stored, for decades after it was first forged, some 75 years or more ago. It isn't cheap--until you compare it to what's out there in the modern market at the same price, and THEN you'll see what a great bargain it is, indeed, especially since it will perform rings around anything of comparable price made today.It's a piece that was hand-forged at the height of the company's prowess, exceeding the already very high standards of the French industry in its prime, a model of beauty, functionality and craftsmanship. It is rare to be found at all, especially in this magnum size. It is at LEAST a full measure of refinement above the average Sabatier of its day and was made for a user of prestige, not something available in department stores of its day. The fit and finish of its blade and handles is exquisite. Like all fine knives, it has a fully forged and tapered tang that extends the full length of the knife, for maximum balance in the center of your hand, where it belongs. When you use a knife like this, it feels like an extension of your hand, not a mere object that you're holding. Its superb aesthetics are matched by it's performance. This is the perfect knife for a wide variety of kitchen tasks, and is, for many old-school chefs, the only knife you'll ever need. From creating thin slices of turkey breast, tomato, cucumber, onion or whatever, to reducing large piles of your garden's freshest herbs into small piles of aromatic goodness, this outstanding knife will outperform just about any other.
Best of all, though, is the size of the piece. In this extra- extra-EXTRA-large size, it is the last word in any kitchen cutlery debate, measuring a full 20" long with a 14.25" blade that is a full 2-7/8 wide at the hilt. Despite its size, it never once feels heavy in the hand, and it was made to be balanced, with a feel meant to impress the expert user. Notice that the knife incorporates the slightly round and elongated French bolster, which allows your fingertips to achieve maximum contact with the knife for better control than its German counterparts. If you've never used a carbon steel knife before, you're in for a treat.
Experienced chefs know that only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes cooking a true pleasure you must wipe the knife after every use to avoid stains and rusting, but will be richly rewarded with superior performance! Equally impressive is the way this blade SiNGS when thumped with the finger or comes off a sharpening steel. Reynewaeser Chambas was most famous in the industry for the excellence of their hand-forging and for the quality of their steel, a proprietary formulation that was the subject much speculation in Thiers during their time.
While the absence of this phenomenon doesn't mean the steel is NOT top-quality, the presence of it always guarantees that it is (many factors enable a blade to sing, but crappy steel never does). Whether you're an amateur or professional chef, you know how important the finest cutlery is to your state of mind while cooking. Here's your chance to relax and let your hands take over. And it's never too early to find the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for loved one! A beautiful, heirloom-quality piece for user and collector alike and a knife that anyone would be proud to pass along to future generations.Our store's inventory is searchable using the search field or may be browsed by clicking on categories, with each option found on the left side of the store's homepage.
