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 is a very rare knife--a fine vintage Sabatier chef knife with a 10" blade (14.75" overall) and a handle that is fully intact with no hairlines, looseness or problems of any kind. This is every skilled chef's most essential and heavily relied-upon knife in the kitchen, perfect for dicing, chopping, mincing and a multitudes of other tasks.As such, it's a VERY versatile knife and is fully capable of getting you through the preparation of a multi-course meal. It was made in Sabatier's long-ago retired "2 Lions" line of cutlery, but it bears very little resemblance to most 2 LIons pieces.
Our biggest criticism of them has been that they made their blades from a virtually unsharpenable molybdnum steel formula but this knife has a blade forged from CARBON steel, not stainless at all. It's in heirloom condition, too, offered at a VERY reasonable price. As the photos show, it's in remarkably well-preserved, with full blade and a rare, undamaged handle, with no cracks, chips or looseness--good as new and ready to provide a lifetime of outstanding service. And in one key area, this knife is BETTER than a new one: it has been given a professional edge so razor sharp you could literally shave with it.
Even many veteran chefs will find this knife to possess a degree of sharpness with which they are unfamiliar--truly a treat to use. Like all "2 Lions" knives, it was made with mitre dural/full-tang construction to reduce its weight, as an attempt by the maker to accomodate many users (mostly women) who complained that for them, a fully-forged knife with integral steel blade/bolster/tang might be too heavy. It's ready to handle just about anything without ever feeling unwieldy or clumsy. A great knife for user and collector alike!Our store's inventory is searchable using the search field or may be browsed by clicking on categories, with each option found on the left side of the store's homepage.
