Using a hand-forged stainless steel blade that's a full 1/8 thick, beautifully wrought in stainless steel over gorgeously grained rosewood handles, it's riveted in brass rivets over its full and fatted tang. Of course, the company no longer hand-forges anything, nor makes anything remotely like this knife, but their brand is recognized as being head and shoulders above and beyond most vintage Sabatier fare. This piece more than lives up to that reputation for excellence and one needs to hold it in hand only once to fully appreciate what it is capable of. Truly, the value of such a knife is limited only by the imagination of its user. As serrated knives go, it is among the very finest ever conceived and certainly one of the most massive.
It has a number of outstanding details that differentiate it, but the true star of this piece is, in my view, the incredible performance it will deliver to the user, from carving a 100lb. Been wanting some watermelon or pumpkin pie but haven't wanted to soil great-great-great granddad's Cavalry sword? At 20.25" long with a 15.25" by 2.25 blade, there's virtually nothing it cannot dispatch quickly and effectively and its width even permits its use as a serrated chef knife, for chopping, dicing and mincing.Like the finest big knives it never feels unwieldy or clunky--just an amazing knife. It's found here very slightly used but still in superb condition--looking even better than our dismal digital photographs make it appear.
And collector's piece though it may be, it is a knife that was made to be used and I truly hope its lucky winner will do exactly that. The photos give you some idea of its appearance, but don't do nearly enough to convey the balance and feel of it or how useful a knife it really is--the final word in any kitchen argument. In short, the performance of this piece is as impressive as the appearance, and that is saying quite a bit. It will only continue to age beautifully in your family's hand for generations, like a fine burgundy, and you will rightly come to think of it as an heirloom, either for yourself, your heirs or that special and VERY lucky chef on your gift list. NOTE: Even though this is a stainless steel blade, never use a dishwasher (I promise that my VERY angry ghost will haunt you if you do with this knife).
I apply a very thin coat of non-toxic mineral oil to wooden handles periodically, to seal them from ambient moisture in the atmosphere (olive or corn oil will suffice in a pinch).
