MASSIVE Vintage French Hand-forged Carbon Steel Chef's Cheese Wheel Knife, SHARP
Please read our Terms below for details. This is an AWESOME find in more ways than one and while it's certainly not a piece for everyone, for anyone working with large wheels of cheese, this knife is nothing short of a godsend. The photos don't do justice to it and really don't give you a sense of how HUGE it really is but it is massive, weighing in at an impressive 2 lb. And measuring 26" long with a blade that is 14" long by 3.25" wide and 1/8" thick. Just about every cutlery in that country made one, though, so it could be by Deglon or by one of the many smaller companies that now belong to the consortium we know in the States as Sabatier. Judging by the construction of this knife it dates to the early or mid-20th Century, when the French cutlery makers were still producing culinary cutlery at world-class standards.

It has one VERY minor nick on the handle, which you can see in the 6th photo from the top (just below blade) but is otherwise in rock solid, undamaged condition. It's very high-quality walnut handles are entirely intact with no cracks, looseness or other problems of any kind, brass-riveted in an old-fashioned pattern over a full tang on both sides. In terms of its materials, craftsmanship and performance, it offers everything one could hope and more.

Obviously, it's ideal for cutting through even the very largest wheels of cheese, casing and all. Knives of this configuration are also used to GREAT effect for cutting pizza, mincing vegetables and herbs or anything else you can find to reduce in a minute to a small pile of aromatic goodness.

Splitting lobsters down their center? It will last a useful and beautiful lifetime if properly cared for and will make a BIG impression on any chef on your gift list, amateur or professional. Like all carbon steel knives it must be kept dry to prevent rusting but its superior edge performance more than makes up for the minor inconvenience, as any knowing chef over the age of 50 can confirm.

An impressive addition to any collection or user's arsenal of fine cutlery on a piece you'll rightly come to think of as an heirloom.
