Vintage AUSONIA Italy Smaller Bolstered Carbon Steel Chef Knife RAZOR SHARP
Please read our Terms below for details. In a size the French would call a "cuisine petit, " this superb vintage chef's knife is over 60 years old, yet has never been used, found here in excellent condition and rock solid in every way. From decades of storage it has acquired some spots but it has NEVER been used and in one key way is better than when it was new, having been professionally edged for this sale and now more RAZOR keen than the day it first left the factory. It was produced in Maniago--Italy's cutlery capital--and bears the Ausonia logo and company name. Ausonia was a fairly well-known maker inside of Italy but the company never imported their wares into this country. They came to us with a much larger lot of Italian knives but this one is special; it is among the most handy and useful you'll ever own, offered here at an affordable price. It has a 5.5" blade, (10" long overall); as a main knife for smaller hands or as a fast and effective utility knife for larger hands, this is a knife to get excited about. Like their collector counterparts, any professional chef would be DELIGHTED to own and use such a knife. It was made with beautifully grained genuine cherrywood handle fixed onto the full tang of its entirely hand-forged carbon steel blade, using the old-style brass pins, reinforced at the bolster with clad brass. Unlike stainless steel, its blade is carbon steel, and it WILL rust if not properly maintained. This minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superior performance of carbon steel, as any chef over the age of 50 can tell you. With a bird-head handle, in the manner of French knives, it has a very pointy tip to allow entry into places most German-made knives can only dream about. A GREAT knife for doing a fast chop or mince and It will shave paper-thin peels from apples and potatoes. For cutting over a pot on the boil against your thumb, it is unsurpassed.
