It's HUGE, heavy-duty carbon steel bull-nose blade was forged MANY years ago in USA by Foster Bros. Once America's proudest name in butcher's cutlery. 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 better in some ways than both. This is every butcher's best friend. Known alternately as a bull, a bullnose, a butcher knife or a straight steak knife, it's the perfect knife for serious slicing of meats and everything else.
Its wide, curved, blade is carbon steel--beautifully ground and triple-riveted over very solid and beautiful beechwood handles. It's original purpose is for carving steaks from a larger carcass or side of meat, but you'll find that many professional chefs prefer this style of slicing knife for its slight hump at the "ball" of the cutting edge.
This 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 20.25" long with a substantial 14.5" blade, which is more than 2.25 wide at its widest. 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.
