Set in its original walnut presentation box, the inside lid of which shows an old litho of the vast Henckels steel works as it appeared in 1890, this knife is all any real chef needs in the serious kitchen but it looks SO much better doing so. The photos really can't do justice to the knife itself, which has been the beneficiary of etching and engraving of that same image, with special twin-logo stampings on the bolster. At the time of their manufacture, the Fourstar series by Henckels was consistently winning desigh awards for their sleek appearance and clean lines, and the company spared no expense in producing this special edition of them. The box itself, though having some scuffs from years of storage, is also a first-class piece, made with dovetail joints and only the very finest solid brass hardware.
If you plan on using this knife, you'll be delighted to discover that the steel used in making them is superior to that used today--having been smelted from virgin ore at the Henckels plant at a time when they still did that, instead of imported from India, Pakistan and Korea, where the recycled household garbage that goes into knives made since a 1987 law permitted relaxation of what the words, "MADE IN GERMANY" could mean. As such, it will take a finer edge and will remain easier to keep razor keen, with a much lower chance of breaking due to embrittlement. A rare opportunity for user and collector alike to take home a true Henckels treasure!
