Please read our Terms below for details. Only rarely do we come across any vintage chef knives from Spain but doubly so for those of this gigantic size.Made with a classi French birdshead handle like that found on a fine vintage Sabatier, this superb chef's knife was made in Toledo, Spain by Garrido, one of that country's finest makers of professional cutlery for chefs, butchers and other culinary experts. Though this knife is well over 40 years old it is found here in very good condition with no problems of any kind and there are few words which adequately describe it more than just plain Wow! In one key way, though, it's in better-than-new condition, because we've had it professionally edged to be RAZOR keen in a way that very few knives ever can be--much sharper than when it was new.
With such an edge there is virtually nothing this knife cannot do and do better than the vast majority of professional quality knives at double the price. It was expertly hand-forged with a strong and sturdy blade with full tang and hafted with virtually indestructible WHITE composite handle scales--another rarity. If you're someone who knows the FEEL of fine knives, you won't have to use this knife twice to understand what it's capable of, and you will experience nothing short of a revelation of performance. It's a heavy-duty demon that was designed to reduce a fifty-pound bag of onions to a mountain of mince in no time, and in that and many other areas it does NOT disappoint! Many chefs prefer a carbon steel blade but many chefs do not while others work in counties that prohibit the use of carbon steel blades, due to (what amounts to superstitious) health codes.If you're one of those chefs, or just someone looking to own one of the finest knives ever made, this knife is for you. Obviously, this knife's single most impressive attribute is its size--19.25" long with a 14" blade. Of course, as you'd expect, it will shave WAFER-thin slices of charcuterie, tomatoes, onions, or anything else, but it is first and foremost a chef's knife for chopping, mincing, dicing, for which it is ideally suited. An true opportunity to add some size to your arsenal of fine cutlery and an affordable chance to acquire what you'll rightly come to think of as an heirloom. NOTE: We took our photos outdoors and there are some reflections and glare in them but in person the blade looks quite normal--guaranteed.
