Antique, Extremely Rare, Sabatier DEG (DEGLON) Nogent Type Chef's Knife - 9. Chef's Knife - 9 = Blade (just the blade); Stainless Steel; Made in France; Very Sharp; Professionally, Carefully Sharpened. The steel is very, very easy to sharpen and keep its sharpness very good - a secret of the French artisans. No cracks on the dark, ebony handle - very well preserved.
The ring is in very good condition, the handle with no cracks in very good condition too. Blade + handle = very finely polished. Inscriptions carved into the blade (within a square frame). I have a small sharpening business and I like to think I know what a sharp knife is. It was sharpened only on Japanese water stones.
No sparkles, the stones are continuously impregnated and sprayed with water. That means no damaging of the original steel quality (like hardening). The last stone is an 8,000 grit which means mirror polish. I have sharpened it manually on Japanese water stones (using a lot of water which means no sparks - in order to maintain the original blade properties - like hardening). Last stone 8000 grit - mirror finish, razor sharp.
I have a little sharpening business which means that the knife is properly sharpened - I like to believe. The Japanese water stones can be used only when they are wet and continuously sprayed with water. AT THE POST OFFICE YOU GOTTA PRODUCE AN I.
