In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. This beautiful old chef's knife is an exceptional piece of Sheffield quality, hand-forged and crafted in a timeless style that is heavily influenced by the French nogent-style, in which a knife's rat-tail tang pierces a solid handle and is anchored at the pommel. Notice that the knife also incorporates the elongated and slightly rounded French-style bolster, which allows your fingertips to achieve maximum contact with the knife for better control.
It was made in Sheffield by Joseph Rodgers, perhaps that legendary city's most legendary makers of fine blades and is stamped, "ENGLAND, " on one side of blade with, "E [with the crown logo] R, JOSEPH RODGERS AND SONS, CUTLERS TO HIS MAJESTY, " on the other. Either way, it's a beautifully preserved piece of the highest quality in Sheffield cutlery, as effective in use as it is beautiful to behold, which is, as the photos clearly show, quite a boast. If you're a chef looking for a smaller knife for light-duty work it is a model of beauty, functionality and craftsmanship. For the chef with smaller hands needing a smaller piece for his or her main, go-to knife, this knife will be nothing less than a godsend: the only knife you'll ever truly need in the kitchen.
Especially in this size, it is somewhat rare to be found in such excellent condition, considering that most Rodgers knives of this quality were probably used on a daily basis in some huge country estate's private kitchen or in one of the few fine haute cuisine eateries at that time. Its ivorine (celluloid) handle is warm to the touch and easy on the eyes, free of any cracks, chips or loosness of any kind--truly remarkable. It was made in the quintessential chef knife profile, in this handy smaller size, made with a 4.75" blade, 8.75" overall that permits it to be used for just about any and every job in the kitchen.This is the perfect knife for a wide variety of kitchen tasks, from carving a turkey or shaving some paper-thin charcuterie to reducing your garden's freshest herbs and veggies into small piles of aromatic goodness for inclusion in your most treasured recipes. Whether you're an amateur or professional chef, you know how important the finest cutlery is to your state of mind while cooking. Here's your chance to relax and let your hands take over. And it's never too early to find the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for loved one!
