Knife has very little pitting and spotting which is typical of carbon steel knives of this age. Knife is in overall good condition with no handle cracks. Sheath that comes with the knife is not in the best condition which you can see for yourself from the photos. Due to the collectable nature of our knives we do not sharpen them before sending off, therefore these knifes may require sharpening before intended use. The name Sabatier is considered to imply a high-quality knife produced by one of a number of manufacturers in the Theirs region of France using a fully forged process, the knives of some of these manufacturers are highly regarded.
