Please read our Terms below for details. This is an extraordinary knife with extraordinary size, yet sacrifices NOTHING in the way of balance, precision and performance. This gorgeous vintage standout was constructed in the classic French chef's configuration in the largest size the company produced.
As such, you're looking at one of the finest pieces of professionally cutlery ever produced in the USA. It was hand-forged from fine, virgin cutlery steel at a time when such attention to quality was the norm rather than the exception, and it has everything going for it one could hope to have in a chef's knife.As you can clearly see in the photos its condition is still quite excellent, especially considering that most of these were allowed to rust or were nearly worn out and over-sharpened. In addition to the superb quality of its carbon steel, which sings when thumped with a finger or honed on a steel, it was hafted with exceptionally fine, dark, old-growth walnut handles, triple-riveted over a full and finely tapered tang. It packs a 14.25" blade (knife is 19-5/8" overall) that has been professionally edged so RAZOR keen that we guarantee it to put a smile on even the most jaded user's face.
In my esteem, however, the knife's single most desirable quality is the lightness, balance and speed that it enjoys in the hand, despite its rather large footprint. This is NOT a cuisine massive, one of those very heavy duty knives that are more common in this length. It is, instead, a graceful giant, capable of turning your inner demon loose in the kitchen, to the utter horror of onions, celery or anything else you need to chop fast and furious. I have NEVER seen another knife of this size handle so well--you could easily accomplish any job in the kitchen with it, including precision work of every description. Like all carbon steel knives, it must be kept dry, even during use, but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superb edge maintenance and performance offered by carbon steel, as any experienced chef or butcher over the age of 50 can confirm.
If you've never used carbon steel knives before, you're in for a treat. Only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes using it a true pleasure you must wipe the knife after every use to avoid stains and rusting, but will be richly rewarded with superior performance! Whether you're a chef, collector or simply someone who appreciates the finest cutlery for any purpose, here's an excellent opportunity to upgrade your arsenal with something singularly special, that you'll rightly come to think of as an heirloom.
