Though it is unmarked with any maker's name, this enormous cimeter-style butcher knife is almost certainly American, judging by its materials, construction and overall design. It has been used but it is in excellent condition and still has everything going for it in terms of quality, usefulness and especially performance. And in on very key way it is better than it was when new, having been given a professionally applied RAZOR SHARP edge for the purpose of this sale. As such, we're urging the utmost in caution or the careless user may find himself in the ER in need of fingers. Yes, it is that sharp.
It's HUGE, curved, carbon steel blade was made for breaking down a side of beef or other livestock into smaller cuts but knives like this often found their way into camps for more general use, for everything from splitting kindling to clearing brush. Only one use of it will demonstrate definitively that there can be NO disputing that this is a superb quality knife in every respect, easily the equal of its German counterparts like Henckels and Wusthof and in some ways, like the quality of steel, better. Its wide, curved, blade is carbon-steel--beautifully ground and hafted onto an incredibly beautiful and patinated rosewood handle, mellowed by the passing of many years and the touch of many hands. While it's original purpose is for carving steaks from a larger carcass or side of meat, you'll find that many professional chefs prefer this style of slicing knife for just about everything.Its curvature affords it an extra measure of force, requiring slightly less effort. And 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. 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. Measures a whopping 20.25" long with a substantial 14=3/8" blade, but by any measure this is an outstanding piece in every respect for use or display and a true find. Pair it up with one of the other truly outstanding vintage butcher and chef's knives, forks and sharpening steels we have up for sale. An AWESOME find in more ways than one.
