Weighing in at a WHOPPING 38.2 ounces, it's a hand-forged masterpiece made to dispatch every kitchen's most demanding, heavy-duty jobs, from splitting lobsters along their length to butchering small and medium livestock, like lambs, hence the other names such a knife might go by: lamb splitter or lobster splitter. Apart from a very minor rough spot on one side of its handle it's in fantastically well-preserved condition. It's one of the oldest knives of this style to use the Sabatier name and was hand-forged in Paris, long before the company moved their operations from Paris to the region near Thiers. As you can see in the photos it was produced bearing the glove or hand logo.
It's beautifully preserved and was hand-forged and crafted in a timeless style that is every French chef's most prized tool. Despite having been used and sharpened extensively, its condition is superb, with beautifully patinated carbon steel blade that was hand-forged from the finest carbon steel by master craftsmen who made it at a time when the skill of such craftsmen was unparalleled.
Its handles are original and are thick scales of ox horn of the finest quality, hafted over a full and tapered tang using 3 iron pins. Look at it--just a masterpiece of the cutler's art. Like all fine knives, it has a fully forged and tapered tang that extends the full length of the knife, for maximum balance in the center of your hand, where it belongs.
When you use a knife like this, it feels like an extension of your hand, not a mere object that you're holding. It's superb aesthetics are matched by it's performance. 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!
It is EXCEEDINGLY sharp, having received a professional edging for the purpose of this sale, and is delighted to thrill even the most jaded chef. It measures 17" long with 12" blade--but its quality, beauty and usefulness make it huge, no matter how you measure it. Whether you're an amateur or professional chef, you know how important the finest cutlery is to your state of mind while cooking. Here's your chance to relax and let your hands take over.
And it's never too early to find the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for loved one! A beautiful, heirloom-quality piece for use or for display among a collector's finest cutlery and something you'll be happy to pass along to your heirs.
