The blade has developed a gray color and it has some typical spotting, there is no pitting and the edge is keen and sharp enough to slice through paper. The blade is stamped with the number 147-12, overall it is 18" long, the blade is 2 1/4" wide at the bolster, the blade edge is 12 1/4 long. Experienced chefs know that only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes cooking a true pleasure, the vintage knives are superior, this fine knife will serve it's new owner well, hopefully someone can put it to good use! Please ask for a calculation of the cost. I'll be glad to answer them!
