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. Without a doubt, we are asking a premium price for this fine butcher knife but it is truly an extraordinary knife, fully worthy of every penny.Whether you're a collector or simply someone looking for the finest possible butcher knife in a medium size with a fully hand-forged stainless steel blade, this knife should really get your juices flowing. In terms of quality of its design, materials, craftsmanship, condition and especially performance, it has everything to offer one could hope and much more. It's also the single rarest and hardest to come by knife ever made in this series by Sabatier. Made in Thiers, France, this SUPERB chef's bullnose-style butcher knife dates to the 1940's--1950's and bears the "Ekco Ancienne Maison" label and is guaranteed 100% of Sabatier manufacture, coming from Sabatier's retired upscale "La Trompette" line of cutlery, one of the finest ever produced anywhere by anyone. The companies even used ivery similar logos and identical model numbers for their corresponding products.
Sabatier logo included for illustration. As the photos show, it's magnificently hand-forged in a one-piece stainless steel blade/bolster/tang construction, with the highly desirable black ebony handles, not plastic, triple-riveted in white brass over a full and tapered tang.
Also odd for a bullnose, is that like a true French chef's knife, it has a round and slightly elongated bolster between blade and handle to allow maximum control with the fingertips (German knives have never adopted this design, which is yet one more reason why knowledgeable chefs prefer French knives). It's exceptionally well-balanced, and when you use a knife like this, it feels like an extension of your hand, not a mere object that you're holding.
Its superb aesthetics are matched by it's performance; it will perform rings around your contemporary knives, whether by Sabatier, Wusthof, Henckels or anyone else. Best of all is its condition, which is completely unused, despite being over 60 years old. Measures 13" long with 8" blade.
