Please read our Terms below for details. This gorgeous vintage Henckels slicing knife was made in Solingen, Germany with solid ebony handles and a SHARP, 10-3/8" carbon steel blade (it's 15" overall) that was hand-forged with an integral bolster and full, tapered tang. Remarkably, though it's well over 50 years old it has NEVER been used and is found here in superb, like-new condition, coplete with its original blade cover from the factory. The cover is a little tattered--from doing its job protecting the blade within.
In terms of quality materials, craftsmanship, condition and performance it offers everything one could want in a slicing knife for both user and collector--and much, much more. It's ready to serve a useful lifetime of creating PAPER-THIN slices of your favorite meats, poultry, fish (it's superb for salmon), tomatoes or whatever else you put in its way. The spearpoint tip allows the knife to pierce easily the skins of tomatoes or other foods that might foolishly offer resistance. It's beautifully balanced in your hand, with a handle that possesses one of the surest and most comfortable grips imaginable.
Blade is marked with the twins logo and reads, J. Henckels Twinworks, SOLINGEN - GERMANY, 213-10. Without doubt, this is one of the finer slicing knives you'll ever use--lightweight, balanced, and only slightly flexible--as beautiful to look at as it is to use.
I think it would also make a superb fillet knife for fishermen as well as chefs. You might not be aware that Henckels knives began to use recycled steel stock in 1987, but this knife was made prior to that (pre-Four Star, pre-Pro "S") from virgin steel. Whether you are a professional or amateur chef, you'll instantly come to love this beauty as one of your very favorites. Also will make a welcome and surprising gift for the discriminating chef on your gift list it's NEVER too early to shop for a fussbudgety chef!
