Please read our Terms below for details. Made in Thiers, France, this extra-fine vintage chef's knife is in superb, never used condition, offered here still in possession of its original cardboard scabbard. It bears the "Ekco Ancienne Maison" label but is guaranteed 100% of Sabatier manufacture, and comes from Sabatier's retired upscale "La Trompette" line of cutlery, one of the finest ever produced anywhere by anyone, made in the 1950's. The companies even used very similar logos and identical model numbers for their corresponding products. As the photos show, it's magnificently hand-forged in a one-piece stainless steel blade/bolster/tapered tang construction, triple-riveted onto black composition handles.
The fit and finish of its stainless blade and ebonite handles is exquisite. Like all fine knives, it has a fully forged tang that extends the full length of the knife, tapering towards both ends for maximum balance. Like a true French knife, it has a rounded bolster between blade and handle to allow maximum control with the fingertips (German knives have never adopted this design, which is yet one more reason why knowledgeable chefs prefer French knives). When you use a knife like this, it feels like an extension of your hand, not a mere object that you're holding. Its superb aesthetics are matched by it's performance.
You will not find a sharper, more functional knife than the older Sabatiers. For smaller hands, this knife is a godsend; for larger ones, one of the handiest light-duty knives you'll ever see.
It's just as adept at chopping and mincing anything from an onion to a handful of herbs, creating paper-thin slices of turkey breast, tomato, cucumber, onion or whatever. Whether you're an amateur or professional chef, you know how important the finest cutlery is to your state of mind while cooking.
