Please read our Terms below for details. With a WICKEDLY sharp edge that will literally shave a man's face, this outstanding vintage Sabatier boning knife is one of the most useful and versatile knives any chef can own. It's also one of the less common profiles of this generation of vintage Sabatier knives and even if you're a LONG-time collector chances are you've only seen just a few of these before: it's a fully-forged boning knife with carbon steel blade--not stainless steel--found used but with none of the hairline cracks that are so commonly found on old Sabatier's, nor any other problems.The company made VERY few boning knives of any kind, the majority of them being in stainless steel, and the vast majority of those made in carbon steel having been made without the benefit of fully-forged construction, where blade/bolster/tang are all of a single piece of steel. To say the least, it is a rarity. Made in France by Thiers-Issard, its blade will discolor over time and will rust if not kept dry between uses, but the superior performance of carbon steel is well worth it. It's fully forged carbon steel blade/bolster/tang is shaped perfectly for boning and/or trimming meats, but seasoned chefs know this is the ultimate design for any all-purpose kitchen task you can give it, from peeling and paring to small-duty slicing and just about everything in between. For many chefs it is a close second only to their chef knives for utility and usefulness.
Like all true French chef's knives, this one comes with rounded and elongated bolster between blade and handle for maximum fingertip control and minimal fatigue, a design VASTLY superior to that of German knives. It was made prior to 1987, which means that the steel used in it is markedly superior to today's offerings by the world's top cutlery brands, since that date marks the inclusion of recycled steel in production (same with Wusthof and Henckels and most others). The difference is quite real.
Handles are nearly indestructible composite. It's a true piece of professional cutlery, with double-tapered blade and tapered tang.
When using a knife like this, it feels perfectly balanced, like an extension of your hand, not like an object you're holding. The blade measures 5" long and the knife is 9.25" overall--an excellent size for large or small hands, and an exceptional find by any measure!
