Please read our Terms below for details. This is a RARE knife and more importantly one of the finest paring knives ever made, doubly so in stainless steel This beautifully forged paring knife is found here unused and in virginal condition, despite being well over 50 years old, one of the most useful and welcome additions to any kitchen. It comes from Thiers-Issard's "Four Stars and Elephant" line of Sabatier knives and was made in Thiers, France in the old Nogent style, named for the French city in which this construction was first produced on an industrial scale. My personal favorite design, it includes in this knife a hand-forged stainless steel blade with integral bolster and tang, which pierces the tough polymer handle and is fastened at the bottom of its pommel. Nogent knives favor a lighter weight and much greater dexterity in the hands of any chef and you might be surprised how many chefs, including Julia Child and James Beard, have written extensivly of thier love for these knives.
At the time of their manufacture, Sabatier said these knives are dishwasher safe, but I don't recommend putting ANY top quality knives in the dishwasher, and I wash my own with warm soapy water by hand. Its blade is made of High-Carbon stainless steel, and will hold a razor's edge, with relatively easy honing. The knife was made FAR prior to 1987, when the company, like most major makers of fine cutlery n Europe, began in that year to switch to using recycled steel in its blades.As such, it will not snap in mid-use (I've had several do it to me, including THREE by Henckels) and will offer only outstanding service for a lifetime--or two. It's factory sharp and ready to perform a lifetime of outstanding service peeling, paring and cutting--not tearing-- your favorite fruits, vegetables or whatever else you put in its way. It's 7-3/8" overall with a 3.25" blade, beautifully balanced in your hand, lightweight without being wimpy. This knife will serve beautifully in any kitchen, amateur or pro, providing the perfect culinary scalpel for use in performing every kitchen's most demanding precision tasks.
