This is one of the very finest old Sabatier chef knives of its size ever made, the quintessential French chef's profile found here in a handy smaller size (10" long with a 6" blade), and every chef's most heavily relied upon knife in the kitchen. Made in Thiers, France, this classic vintage chef's knife comes from Sabatier's very fine "Veritable" line of cutlery, some of the finest knives ever produced for the kitchen and bearing the company's VERY old eagle head logo. As the photos show, it is nothing less than a work of the cutler's art. It comes used but has a full blade, undamaged rosewood handles, and is functionally in 100% excellent condition, despite being well over 70 years old, and it will last a lifetime providing quality performance in every cut. For this sale, this exceptional knife was recently given a RAZOR sharp professional edge and must be treated with extreme care or will land a careless user in the ER needing stitches.You simply can't find Sabatier knives of this vintage anymore, though you'll certainly want to, since the blade is forged from pure virgin steel (as was once the norm) rather than from recycled automobiles, as is the practice today. The difference is real-I've had several contemporary knives SNAP in mid-use, but I've NEVER had a vintage one do it, and as a serious collector of vintage kitchen knives, I use the vintage ones in my own kitchen FAR more often. A very slight amount of contaminant in recycled steel can be made quite evident under the stress of even normal usage.
Like all great knives, it's hand-forged in a one-piece carbon steel blade/bolster/tang construction, triple-riveted onto fine ebony handles that are as warm to the hand as they are pleasing to the eye. Also like all true French chef knives, it has a rounded 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).
An heirloom-quality piece in heirloom condition, ready to provide a useful lifetime of chopping, dicing, slicing and all-around prepping your finest foods with a measure of speed and precision that will leave the heirs of users and collectors alike smiling.
