And it's one of the BEST. It's 12.5" long with an 8" blade, making it one of the most useful knives in any kitchen, for a wide variety of assignments. It is lightweight, nimble and well-balanced--a perfect choice of knives not only for cutting meats of every description, its original purpose, but as any seasoned chef can readily confirm, a GREAT all-purpose blade for even the most demanding kitchen. 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. Handle is beautiful, old-growth rosewood over a full and fatted tang, bolstered in pewter to help keep food debris from entering the handles. A collector's piece though it may be, it would be an utter shame not to use it daily. 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. And if you're someone collecting vintage Winchester items you already know how rare their knives like this are, especially in this kind of condition. 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).
