Please read our Terms below for details. Whether you're a collector or someone in need of the finest possible chef knife for use in your cooking endeavors, this is a knife to get VERY excited about. It was made in France, probably by one of the Sabatier companies, for sale in the USA by the Heinrich Boker Company under their superb "Razor Brand" in the United States.
I date it to the 1930's but in spite of its age I don't think it's ever been used. For certain, as you can see in the photos, it has acquired some oxidation from many decades of storage but it remains 100% excellent. It's only the 2nd Boker knife of its kind I've ever seen and I don't think they had many of them produced. It's a top-quality knife among vintage Sabatier knives, hand-forged in carbon steel of the very finest quality with an integral construction in which blade, bolster and tang are all forged from a single billet of steel. Handles are African ebony riveted in brass over a full and tapered tang, as warm to the touch as it is beautiful to behold.
It's an ideal size, too, measuring 13-7/8" long with a 9.25" blade that is perfect for chopping, dicing, mincing and just about everything else in even the most demanding kitchen. As with any carbon steel blade it must be kept dry to prevent rusting but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superior performance delivered by carbon steel.
Ask any retired chef or butcher.
