RARE Antique VOSS CUTLERY Germany Chef's Carbon Steel Slicing Knife withStag
Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: We take our photos in natural light outdoors and as a result there are sometimes reflections or shadows or glare shown in the blades. In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. This knife is something very special and even more rare and if you're in the market for just such a knife I don't think you should dither too long or it just might be scooped out from under you. Of course, we just don't think that will happen. Made in Solingen, Germany by Voss, better known in the USA for their excellent hunting knives, it was produced with a hand-forged carbon steel blade and fine Sambar stag handle scales that are as rare as hen's teeth in such a knife, especially in this XXL size. Handle has the birdshead profile we more commonly found on French-made knives but this piece is 100% German. Dating to sometime in the early 1900's, it was obviously made for carving and slicing and to that end you will find that it has few equals. Most remarkable of all is the condition of this knife--superb condition in every respect. It has some very minor discoloration from decades of storage but we've had it professionally buffed and sharpened and it is now virtually as good as it was when it first left the factory a hundred years ago or more--RAZOR sharp and just stunning to look at. It is nothing less than a work of the cutler's art. It's 17-5/8" long overall with a 12-3/8" blade but by any measure this is the kind of instant heirloom that user and collector alike will love for a lifetime. If properly cared for, so will your heirs.
