Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: We take our photos in natural light outdoors and as a result there are sometimes reflections or shadows or glare shown in the blades.
In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. With its RAZOR sharp and full carbon steel blade, inlaid in pewter at bolster and pommel atop incredibly fine cocobolo rosewood handles, it just commands the attention of anyone who sees it. Remarkably, its performance is equal to that beauty.
Hand-forged with a RAZOR sharp carbon steel blade, it's a superbly crafted piece on par with the best ever made. Condition is beautiful, as you can see, and the entire piece has a great patina, but still, it's ready to go to work in any kitchen or to shine in the center of any collection of fine cutlery.
It just begs to be held and put to work. It was made by the once-great American Cutlery Company, one of America's truly legendary makers of fine cutlery of every description. It was actually made sometime in the period of 1868-early 20th Century, but even more than its beauty and age, the most remarkable thing about the piece, by far, is its performance in the kitchen. It is a VERY capable paring knife, indeed, waferizing garlic and just about everything else you'll put in its way, peeling rings around other knives. The quality of its hand-forged blade enables even an inexperienced user to put the keenest razor's edge on it with relative ease.
Like all carbon steel knives, it must be kept dry, even during use, but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superb edge maintenance and performance offered by carbon steel, as any experienced chef or butcher over the age of 50 can confirm. Treat her right, though, and she'll last another few generations of outstanding service. From peeling, paring and other utility work to doing a onion paper thin, you'll know you're using one of the best every time you pick it up. You know how difficult it is to come by finest smaller chef knives in carbon steel, since most knowing chefs won't part with theirs until they're dead of the knife is worn out. An heirloom quality piece in heirloom-quality condition.Also will make an exceptional gift for any hard-to-shop-for chef on your list!
