Vintage French Chef Kitchen Knife Sabatier Old 14" Carbon Steel Nogent Cook Knife that is all integral, hand forged, w/ a tapered, (approx) 13 7/8" blade, and is about 19.5 OAL. The blade width, at the handle, is approx 2.5. Relatively light in the hand, it weighs approx 12 ozs. See photos of the stamping, which is worn, but "France" and "acier" (steel) remains legible. The fine, carbon steel blade is about 13.78 long.The blade width, at the widest, is slightly over 2.5. Note the steel ferrule and the full, rattail tang, which is peened at the pommel. It even has the original washer. The ebony, Nogent style, handle is solid, and very handsome. There is a (probable) tight hairline running along part of the front side.
The handle does not seem compromised at all. The blade steel has some patina, no deep pitting, some stains and scratches. It has been lightly sharpened, and has some small edge nicks, grind marks.It is currently very sharp, but, for maximum efficiency and pleasure in using, it should be expertly resharpened. This is a very good knife that will cut thinly and efficiently. Some chefs will even prepare an entire meal with knives of this size. ALL SALES ONLY WHERE LEGAL. THANK YOU FOR YOUR BUSINESS!
