Please read our Terms below for details. This is a superbly crafted piece in remarkably well-preserved condition--just about as good as it gets.
Made in Germany by Wusthof sometime in the 1940's-50's, this outstanding piece was made with a hand-forged carbon steel blade with integral blade/bolster/tang construction, in a truly triangular shape that is a pure joy to work with. Its gorgeous African ebony handles are triple brass-riveted onto its full and tapered tang and are as warm in the hand as they are beautiful to behold. Though it still retains most of its original factory shine, like stainless steel, it's blade is made of beautiful carbon steel--INCREDIBLY sharp now--much sharper than when it was new--guaranteed to thrill even the most jaded user. Wusthof, Dreizackwerk, Solingen, Germany (with trident logo).The knife predates the industry's conversion from virgin steel to recycled and represents a level of craftsmanship and quality that are now lost to the economic realities of our age. It is an incredibly fine and well-balanced knife that surpasses just about anything else from Germany in the modern era in terms of feel and performance. At 15-5/8" long with 10.5" blade, the knife comes in a highly desirable size, just slightly larger than average.
In this configuration it's every chef's best friend in the kitchen when it's time to chop, dice, and slice large quantities of vegetables, fruits, meats or anything else into neat, bite-sized morself for inclusion in your finest recipes. 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!
This knife is perfectly balanced and will make you wonder why you suffered for all these years without one. When you hold a knife like this it feels like an extension of your hand, not like something you're simply holding. This superb knife is ready to serve a useful lifetime of dicing, chopping, slicing and generally making fast work of whatever you put in its way. The fit and finish of its blade and handle are what you should expect from one of Germany's finest cutlery makers and it really is much more beautiful than today's composite-handled equivalent.Whether you are a collector or chef, you'll instantly come to love this magnificent vintage knife as an heirloom.
