In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. This uniquely beautiful chef knife is unmarked but I'm about 99% certain it was made in USA by Wear-Ever (the parent company of Cutco at the time it was made) in their outstanding Professional series of knives. Its handle shape and proportions give it away but I must say I've never seen one QUITE exactly like it. I believe it has been slightly modified by a previous owner, a common thing for some chefs to do. It appears to have been JUST a little bit shaved at its heel, which actually makes this knife in my opinion rise from "merely" excellent to sublime.Just look at it--a thing of beauty--and it performs even better than it looks. When new these knives were primarily distributed by restaurant supply companies so not very many found their way into the consumer market. As you can see, this impressive French-style chef's knife is found here used and unmarked, its original markings long ago worn smooth, but still in superb condition, ready to revolutionize what you thought you knew about fine chef's cutlery. It may shine like stainless steel but its 10.25" blade (knife is 15.25" overall) is made from the highest-quality, hand-forged carbon steel, triple-riveted onto genuine ebony handles with an integral blade/bolster/tang construction. For the purposes of this sale, it has been given an EXTREMELY sharp edge that can literally shave your arm, and like all good carbon steel, it's easy to keep it that way. You must keep it dry to prevent rust but this is a minor inconvenience when stacked up against the great performance and beauty offered by carbon steel. If you're unfamiliar with them, Wear-Ever knives are as good as any brand, including those pricier German brands which you'll pay triple for.
It's blade is sturdy and substantial, yet not overly heavy--just right--allowing it to be used for heavy-duty chopping, dicing and mincing with great speed and agility. It's beautifully balanced in the hand, though, to make it just as effective for making FAST work of chopping your most delicate herbs, garlic or anything else that comes its way into fine morsels of goodness.
It has a beautifully hollow-ground edge that offers a precision of cut that those German brands can only dream about and you will need to use it only once to be converted. This is the ONE knife you'll want to take with you on a desert island (there are many chefs who use this style of knife for EVERY job in the kitchen).
