This outstanding vintage chef knife was made in Esslingen, Germany by F. Dick sometime in the 1950's, when the company was still using the "Pfeil" (it means "Arrow" in German) medallions in their handles and pre-dating the industry's wide conversion to using recycled steel.
It has been used and sharpened, as you can see, but it remains in very good condition with no problems of any kind, and in one very key way is BETTER than when it was new, having received for this sale a WICKEDLY sharp, professionally applied edge, given to it by The Patron Saint of Knives, one of the best in the business check out his videos on youtube! As such, it's FAR sharper than when it was new and is guaranteed to thrill even the most jaded veteran users. It's a magnificent piece of professional grade cutlery and bears a whopping 12.75" virgin stainless steel blade and is 18" long overall.Despite its size, though, this knife is perfectly balanced and holding it in your hand, it feels more like an extension of your arm and less like an object you're simply holding. The knife is also hand-forged, unlike modern knives by Dick, Wusthof or Sabatier, which are hot-drop forged nowadays i. Notice how the tang of the blade extends all the way through the handle growing more thin as you get closer to the butt of the handle or towards the tip? You can't achieve that kind of detail even with the best technology--only with good old-fashioned blacksmithing and elbow grease. The handle is made of genuine rosewood that's warm to the touch and much more beautiful than the ubiquitous black plastic found on pricey cutlery nowadays. Condition is used but functionally excellent with no problems of any kind.
