Please read our Terms below for details. Still, it's a piece that is every bit up to any challenge and in terms of quality it ranks with top American makers like Lamson or Dexter. It was made sometime in the 1940's or 50's by the company, and is fully worthy of that fine brand, as you can see. Though used, it remains in truly excellent condition, as photos show, with no problems of any kind. Indeed, when it comes to the knife's edge it has been professionally honed up for the purpose of this sale and in that one, critical way is better than when new.
It is RAZOR sharp, to say the least and is guaranteed to earn the respect of even the fussiest chef or butcher. The quality of this steel in beyond reproach, too, made from the finest chrome tool steel which RINGS aloud with the thump of your finger.
VERY, very hard to beat. For the serious butcher or chef, it is an essential. This is NOT a lobster splitter or cuisine massif but is, instead a knife that enjoys all the benefits of a huge knife with none of the downside.
It measures 19-3/8" long with a 14" blade yet weighs in at an astonishingly light 10.4 ounces, owing mostly to the fact it's blade has been forged with a maximum thickness of 1/8 at the top of handle tapering down to a whisper thinness near the tip. It's the ultimate for chopping, dicing or mincing, yet still beautifully balanced in the hand to permit the speedy dispatch of any kitchen's most demanding and delicate slicing tasks. If you've used carbon steel knives before, you know the delight of using one. If not, you're in for a most pleasant surprise.
They take an edge much more easily and do not shatter like their stainless steel relatives especially Henckels! I've lost 3 this way.And outperform in almost every way. You must wipe them down after each use but their beauty and superior performance are worth it. Like all fine knives, this chef's knife has a fully hand-forged blade over a full and tapered tang triple-riveted in brass onto the finest quality rosewood handle scales, which are richly mellowed and dark.
There is no disputing its quality--it's simply world class, on par with the best French or German knives--or in the pleasure that a trained hand will experience in its usage. An world-class piece of vintage cutlery that user and collector alike will rightly come to treasure as an heirloom.
