This SUPERB Lamson & Goodnow roast slicing and carving knife is excellent in every way, one of the finest culinary knives of its kind you'll find at any price. In terms of its design, materials, craftsmanship, size, condition and especially performance, it wants for NOTHING.It's the rare piece in this style that was made fully hand-forged with integral blade/bolster/tang construction and in the process offers us a master class in how a truly great knife ought to be made. Its blade is RAZOR sharp and was made from the finest carbon tool steel. Handle is beautifully-grained rosewood scales hafted over a full and tapered tang with six small brass pins, as warm to the touch and easy on the eyes, nicely sculpted to a round and pleasing curvature. Has the old Lamson & Goodnow logo of the continental USA stamped into the blade, as you can see in the photos.
It was made sometime in the late 1800's--early 1900's in Shelbourne Falls, Massachusetts and remains in astonishingly fine condition, retaining much of its original factory shine. We have had it professionally sharpened for this sale to a WICKEDLY razor sharp edge, the likes of which will thrill even the most jaded user. Though it appears to be stainless steel, it is, in fact, some of the finest carbon steel ever forged for a blade in the USA, finished to a degree of fineness and detail that is unknown in the modern marketplace of cutlery. As you can see this blade has been beautifully polished and ground, hammered WHISPER thin by the time it gets to the point, with just the right degree of flexibility built into it. It was forged in the shape of what's called alternately a ham knife, a roast knife, a kebab knife, a salmon knife, a baker's sheet cake knife, but nowadays usually a round-tip master carving knife.
Its numerous uses in any gourmet kitchen, amateur or professional only multiply its value, and whatever tasks you may put it to will multiply your satisfaction with it. With a single stroke, it's capable of carving or slicing whatever is foolish enough to get in its way. It will shave PAPER-thin slices of turkey, roasts, hams or anything else, and its rounded tip is perfect for serving from a carving station. With its deeply lustrous and beautifully grained rosewood handle, it's warm to the touch and the piece enjoys an extra measure of refinement that would look appropriately spiffy at even the most elegant table.A few more elements of its design and construction elevate it above the merely extraordinary to the sublime. For one, it is HUGE, measuring 22.75" long altogether with a 16.5" blade that is 1-3/8 wide--the largest size the company made. It's MORE than a match for even your largest roast, even if you're a Roman Caesar supping on roasted ox. 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.
As with all carbon steel blades you must wipe the knife after every use to avoid stains and rusting, but will be richly rewarded with superior performance and ease of edge maintenance. Its overall balance in the hand is truly remarkable.
When you hold a knife like this it feels like an extension of your hand, not like something you're simply holding. An outstanding piece in every respect for use or display and a true find for the serious knife-o-phile. An instant hierloom for user and collector alike.
