Henckels of Solingen, Germany, this excellent vintagte knife comes hand-forged with integral carbon steel blade/bolster/tang construction, and real ebony handles over its full and tapered tang, using three german silver rivets. This knife has an edge that will make your local sushi chef nod with approval, having been professionally sharpened and honed for this sale. As such, it will perform rings around a modern knife, but must be kept away from the hands of children and dabblers, or will land a careless user in the ER needing stitches. If you've never used a carbon steel knife before, you're in for a treat.
Experienced chefs know that only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes cooking a true pleasure you must wipe the knife after every use to avoid stains and rusting, but will be richly rewarded with superior performance! This knife is perfectly balanced and will make you wonder why you suffered for all these years without quality of this level in your cutlery.
When you hold a knife like this it feels like an extension of your hand, not like something you're simply holding. Measures 18" long with a 12.5" blade--but it's razor edge and balance make it excellent for any job in your kitchen, large or small. Blade is clearly stamped, reading, J.
Henckels Twinworks, Solingen, Germany,'102-12. It's ready to serve a useful lifetime of dicing, chopping, slicing and generally making fast work of whatever you put in its way. Handles are rock solid with no problems of any kind, as warm in the hand as they are easy on the eyes. You might not be aware that Henckels knives began to use recycled steel stock in 1987, but this knife was made from virgin steel. In fact, it was hand-forged, as evidenced by its tang, which tapered more thin toward the bottom, for greater balance in the hand.
The difference in quality may surprise you. Whether you are a professional or amateur chef, you'll instantly come to love this magnificent vintage knife as one of your very favorites. Also will make an exceptionally surprising gift for the discriminating chef on your list. A WORD ABOUT MAINTENANCE: Never use a dishwasher. Wash the knife by hand and wipe clean immediately thereafter.Wipe the knife clean when using it on wet or acidic foods. It WILL rust if not maintained properly. I apply a very thin coat of non-toxic mineral oil to blade and wooden handles periodically, to seal them from ambient moisture in the atmosphere (olive or corn oil will suffice).
