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 rare and exceptionally well-made slicing/carving knife is guaranteed to thrill user and collector alike. It was made by Buck in the USA, one of the finest American makers of cutlery since the latter half of the 20th Century. Made with a hand-forged carbon steel blade that is WICKEDLY sharp and hollow-ground double-concave in the manner of a barber's straight razor.
Because we've had it professionally edged for this sale it's much sharper than when it was new and that is quite sharp, indeed. It's the perfect blade for slicing and carving meats, fish, poultry and everything else, too, like onions, tomatoes--you name it. It measures 14.25" long with a 9.25" blade that is nimble and well-balanced and will perform beautifully filleting fish if you should choose to employ it as such. Its construction is full of the kind of expensive, labor-intensive quality that are sadly gone from the modern cutlery market. Unlike today's mass-produced, hot-drop forged blades i.By machine, it enjoys a fully hand-forged blade made from superior virgin carbon steel, and RAZOR sharp as only a carbon steel blade can be. As such, it is quite superior to that made today by any but the most demanding custom cutlers. Handle is beautifull micarta, beautifully bolstered and triple-riveted over a full tang. A collector's piece though it may be, it would be an utter shame not to use it daily. It's blade is made of beautiful carbon steel, and will hold a razor's edge, with relatively easy honing. 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! This knife is perfectly balanced and will make you wonder why you suffered for all these years without one. When you hold a knife like this it feels like an extension of your hand, not like a weight you're simply holding. A WORD ABOUT MAINTENANCE: Never use a dishwasher. Wash the knife by hand and wipe clean immediately thereafter. Wipe the knife clean when using it on wet or acidic foods. It WILL rust if not maintained properly. I apply a very thin coat of non-toxic mineral oil to blade and wooden handles periodically, to seal them from ambient moisture in the atmosphere (olive or corn oil will suffice).
