This knife is AMAZING, 50% Chef's Knife, 50% Cleaver, 100% AWESOME!!!!!! This is the Bad Boy of the kitchen, The Cuisine Massif or Chef de Chef. Also Known as a Lobster Splitter.The blade is 12 X 2 13/16th inches and an incredibly hefty 1/4 inch thick across the spine and is marked with the SABATIER Four Star Elephant, Although the Logo stamp on the blade is so faint now it can barely be seen only at the right angle in good light. These knives were forged in Thiers France by Sabatier and used for the toughest kitchen jobs. It weighs in at an amazing 1 Lbs 15.5 oz. Despite it's unmatched heft it feels surprisingly well balanced in the hand.
The handle is tightly held by those old school brass rivets. I cleaned and polished this knife when it arrived but there are still some scratches on the blade from being improperly sharpened.
