Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: We take our photos in natural light outdoors and as a result there are sometimes reflections or shadows or glare shown in the blades.
In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. Despite its massive size (19.75" long with 14.25" blade), this outstanding vintage carbon steel chef's knife weighs in at a very modest 10.9 oz. Permitting all of the benefits of a larger knife with none of its potential downside for use by large hands or small. It was hand-forged in Clyde, Ohio by the Clyde Cutlery Company, one of America's most legendary names in old cutlery. It is, to say the least, beautifully balanced in the hand and will speed through any kitchen's most demanding or most delicate chopping tasks.
Condition, though used, is flat-out excellent; in one key way, too, it's better than when it was new, having been professionally edged for this sale by the good people at Ross Cutlery in downtown Los Angeles, one of the best in the business. As such, it's FAR sharper than when it was new and it's guaranteed to thrill even the most jaded veteran users. Its blade is 100% carbon cutlery steel--some of the finest ever produced in this country.If you've never before used a carbon steel knife, you're in for a most pleasant surprise. Only carbon steel takes a RAZOR edge easily and does not shatter like their stainless steel relatives especially Henckels! I've lost 3 this way. And outperforms stainless steel in almost every way. You must wipe it down after each use but its beauty and superior performance are worth it.
Handles are old-growth beechwood over a full tang, naturally moisture and slip-resistant. An outstanding piece of vintage professional grade cutlery, offered here at substantially less than you'd expect to pay for a contemporary stainless steel chef's knife of the same size with a blade made from inferior steel stock.Don't pass up an opportunity to truly elevate the quality of cutlery in YOUR kitchen, amateur or professional. And it's never too early to find the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for chef on your list! A WORD ABOUT MAINTENANCE: Never use a dishwasher. Wash the knife by hand and wipe clean immediately thereafter. Wipe the knife clean when using it on wet or acidic foods. It WILL rust if not maintained properly. I apply a very thin coat of non-toxic mineral oil to blade and wooden handles periodically, to seal them from ambient moisture in the atmosphere (olive or corn oil will suffice).
