Please read our Terms below for details. I've had this very large bullnose butcher knife since the late 1960's and it has always been as it is today--devilishly handsome to look at and fiendishly sharp and effective to use. I don't know who made it, though Kabar or Keen Kutter would be a semi-educated guess because they're the only American makers I've ever seen who used solid aluminum handles on professional-grade chef's or butcher's cutlery. I have also seen a very few that were made in France, and this knife does have a much more French than American handle shape, but that is purely speculation on my part.
That also leaves the possibility that this knife may have been someone's machine-shop project or possibly the "theater-made" work of some military guy bored out of his skull and looking for a way to pass the time until he could be reunited with his Daisy Mae. What is beyond doubt is the supreme quality of its materials, craftsmanship and performance. Blade is highly-polished carbon steel with a radius-ground, double convex edge that can shave paper-thin slices of meats of anything else you put in its way. Handle is a thoughtfully sculpted chunk of solid aluminum, delivering a VERY comfortable and natural grip with a birdshead pommel. This is every chef's most useful and trusted tool in the kitchen, and for chopping, dicing, mincing and slicing, there is none finer.
Like all carbon steel knives, it must be kept dry, even during use, but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superb edge maintenance and performance offered by carbon steel, as any experienced chef or butcher over the age of 50 can confirm. For the purposes of this sale, the blade has been given a WICKEDLY sharp edge that can literally shave your arm. In spite of its EXTRA-large size, this knife enjoys a great deal of balance and speed that will endow its user with all the advantages of a larger knife and none of the drawbacks.
