Please read our Terms below for details. This exceptionally fine antique butcher knife is a GREAT piece of cutlery and a true rarity. Despite being well over 100 years old it's found here in superb condition and for the purpose of this sale it has been given a RAZOR sharp edge that will thrill even the most jaded user. It's fine carbon steel blade was hand-forged in Berlin, Ohio by a smaller regional cutlery known as F.
Gandrich, who specialized in producing cutlery for the vast stockyards of Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Columbus (Berlin is positioned at the center of those three cities). The company was founded by a blacksmith and that tradition of fine hand-forging is highly evident in the quality of this knife's materials and construction.Its curved carbon steel blade was hand-forged to perfection with a solid ebony handle hafted over its tapered tang using one of the most unusual 4-pin T-patterns I've ever seen. Made for cutting large steaks and roasts from a side or carcass, there's virtually no limit to what it can do in the hands of a skilled chef or butcher, from trimming meats to slicing an onion to carving your Thanksgiving turkey paper thin. Hunters and those raising their own livestock will also gravitate towards this knife when processing time comes around and you'll love it, too, for just about anything and everything. Because of its superb condition, its blade still shines like stainless steel but it is, in fact, fine carbon steel and must be kept dry during use or will rust. This minor inconvenience is more than offset, though, by the superior performance it offers, as any veteran chef or butcher over the age of 50 can confirm. Measures 15-3/8" long with 10.25" blade but by any measure its condition, quality and performance are off the charts.
