Hand-forged in Southbridge, Massachusetts by Dexter, this fine vintage carbon steel chef's knife is in excellent condition and is one of the best friends any professional chef or butcher has ever had.It was produced for sale by L. Bean of Freeport, Maine and lives up to that respected retailer's reputation for solid durability, craftsmanship and design.
Also known as a french knife, the design is perfect for chopping and dicing, but many chefs take pride in using one for every task in the kitchen. If you're a dedicated amateur or professional chef with an eye for the right tool for the right job, you know that a knife like this can serve a multitude of useful functions in the kitchen, from trusted heavy-duty butchery, to the finer mincing of huge quantities of herbs into small piles of aromatic goodness. The knife is very solid with full blade, showing only the normal discoloration associated with fine carbon steel, triple riveted onto gorgeous rosewood handles.Though fully forged, it is is a lighter weight knife than most of Dexter's french knives but not wimpy at all, and comes in an outstanding medium size. Measures 13.75" overall with 8.75" blade. Best of all, perhaps, this exceptional knife was recently given an EXTREMELY sharp professional edge and must be treated with extreme care. You can literally shave your face with it. In the old days, many classically trained French chefs didn't consider a knife fit for professional use until it received its first "working" edge upon receipt from the factory. Sushi chefs continue this tradition with their rituals of water stones and the resulting keen of their blades is virtually alien to most home cooks (and to many professional chefs) of Western indoctrination. This knife comes pretty close to just that kind of sharpness, but please exercise MAXIMUM caution, since a careless user may find himself in the E. An outstanding knife with some collector value for sure, though it would be a shame to not use it on a regular basis in any kitchen, amateur or professional. A superb value on a world-class piece of vintage cutlery that proves once again that American cutlery can and does compare favorably with that by any maker from any other nation.
