This is one of several very fine vintage Henckels knives of exceptional quality we're posting this week (as of this writing), and a finer one would be hard to find. This is an exceptionally rare find because of its size and for the serious chef and collector alike, an opportunity to grab one of the rarest carbon steel chef knives Henckels made, in used but excellent condition.Henckels of Solingen, Germany, this is a very special vintage piece, found here in a highly-desirable medium size with 7.25" blade, measuring 12-1/8" long overall. Those made with larger blades were FAR more common. This beautiful chef's knife comes hand-forged with integral carbon steel blade/bolster/tang construction with ebony handles triple-riveted onto its full tang. The blade was hand-forged of beautiful carbon steel, and will hold a razor's edge, with relatively easy honing. It's sharper than factory sharp right now, having been professionally edged for this sale--ready to begin a new lifetime of outstanding performance for even the most demanding of chefs. It's the ideal main knife for smaller hands or the perfect light-duty piece for larger ones and whether for chopping, dicing, mincing or just about anything else in the kitchen, this is the knife. 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 something 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).
