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. This outstanding chef's smaller slicer or sandwich knife is a rare configuration in an even more rare size, 9-7/8" long with a 6-1/8" blade--and an exceptionally useful one, indeed. As you can see in the photos, it's been used but is still in very good condition with none of the hairlines or other problems that too often bedevil fine vintage Sabatier knives.In one very key way, too, it is BETTER than when it was new, having received for this sale a RAZOR sharp edge that is FAR sharper than when it first left the factory--guaranteed to thrill even the most jaded chef. It was made by Thiers-Issard for Sabatier in their finest "Four Stars and an elephant" line, and is a bit of an oddball, eschewing the traditional French rounded bolster in favor of a flattened, more German bolster.
The German-style bolster does have a function, permitting greater control with the wrist and permits better performance for many users in small quarters--nice in a cramped kitchen, or when working a line. If you've only used stainless steel knives until now, you will find a refreshing experience of oustanding performance in using a fine vintage carbon steel blade such as this. Easier to hone to a razor's edge and easier still to keep it that way, carbon blades require the user to keep them dry to prevent rusting, but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superior performance provided. Knowledgable chefs and butchers alike have always preferred carbon to stainless blades, and once you've used one, you'll soon know why. Best of all, this knife was made sometime in the 1950's--1960's, predating by many years the industry's wide conversion in 1987 from the use of virgin steel in the making of fine knife blades to the use of recycled steel instead.
The difference in quality and ease of maintenance is substantial, the performance is outstanding. Like all fine knives, this slicer has a fully forged tang that extends the full length of the knife, tapering towards both ends for maximum balance. When you use a knife like this, it feels like an extension of your hand, not a mere object that you're holding. It's superb aesthetics are matched by it's performance. It's the perfect knife for creating paper-thin slices of turkey breast, tomato, cucumber, onion or whatever, and is made to be flexible as well as strong.Whether you're an amateur or professional chef, you know how important the finest cutlery is to your state of mind while cooking. Here's your chance to relax and let your hands take over. And it's never too early to find the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for loved one!
