Made in the style of what's alternately called a cimeter, a scimitar or a curved steak knife, it is, in terms of its performance, as good as any butcher knife has a right to be--and then some. Its DEEPLY hollow-ground edge was a Dexter specialty and once a skilled chef or butcher has used one of these, they tend to be come fervent converts, proseletyzing as they go along. Like a barber's straight razor, it gets sharper faster and cuts with the utmost in precision. Its original purpose is in cutting and trimming steaks and other cuts from a larger side or carcass, but you'll find that knowing chefs and butchers have virtually no limit of applications for such a knife, from carving paper thin slices of roast to serving birthday cake to convincing the dishwashers that pots need to be scrubbed perfectly clean, not merely kind of clean.To say the least, you, too, will have no trouble finding a myriad of uses for it. It was forged with a 12.25" carbon steel blade hafted onto a gorgeously grained old-growth rosewood handle of the highest quality (17.75" overall length), slightly rounded for comfort, warm to the touch and nothing less than magnificent to look upon, as you can clearly see. If you've been looking for just the right vintage butcher knife, one that still carries a big-time BITE, look no further. Though its blade still has a stainless-style shine, its 100% carbon steel, which takes a RAZOR edge and keeps it with relatively easy honing. If you've never before used carbon steel knives, you're in for a true revelation: carbon steel knives attain RAZOR sharpness with great ease and can be rehoned without the assistance of a blacksmith, unlike overly hardened modern stainless knives. You must wipe the blade dry with each use, but this minor inconvenience is much more than offset by superior performance. True professional chefs and butchers have always preferred carbon steel knives, and once you've incorporated one into your arsenal, you'll soon want more.
NOTHING will make faster work of game or livestock, if you're butchering your own. The curved shape of the blade allows for perfect and sure cutting on a single stroke--every time--and has numerous uses in any gourmet kitchen, amateur or professional. An outstanding piece in every respect for use or display and a true find, especially in this condition.
