Vintage Sabatier Nogent-style Carbon Steel Chef Knife withRAZOR SHARP 9-5/8 Blade
Please read our Terms below for details. From one of the finest cutlery companies in the world comes this outstanding professional-quality Chef's knife from Sabatier's superb retired "PROFESSIONAL" line of knives. My personal favorite style of chef knife, it was made in what's known as the "Nogent style" for the city of the same name in France where knives like this were pioneered, the knife incorporates a style and construction that is nearly a lost art on this earth. While the blade is entirely hand-forged with an integral bolster, as modern high-quality chef's knives are, the handle required far more craft to build. It involves a rat-tail shaped tang going the full length of the handle (piercing it, actually), anchored at the bottom with a hooked tang-pin and collared at the bolster for added support.

What makes this variety of knife so special, however, is its balance in your hand and its relative light weight, which enables it to speed through your workday in the kitchen. Many people MISTAKENLY believe that the modern style is better. This couldn't be further from the truth. Ask your own local French chef over the age of 50.

The late Julia Child had written extensively about her love of these knives and they are rare enough to find in any condition because no chef in his/her right mind would give one up. To find one like this, however, razor sharp and ready to work straight out of the box, is a very welcome find, indeed.

It has EVERYTHING you could possibly want from it in terms of rarity, materials, craftsmanship, size and condition, and whether you're a user or a collector, this is surely a piece you'll come to love as an heirloom. Though it has been used, it still is in truly outstanding condition, as the photos show, with no problems of any kind. It does have a single hairline but it's neglible, at the butt of handle and hard to spot without being told it's there. It was made in Thiers, France with a hand-forged carbon steel blade with integral bolster/taperd tang with a handle made from a gorgeous African ebony, warm to the touch and very easy on the eyes.

If you've never used a carbon steel knife before, you're in for a treat. Experienced chefs know that only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes cooking a true pleasure you must wipe the knife after every use to avoid stains and rusting, but will be richly rewarded with superior performance!

This knife is RAZOR sharp now, professionally edged for this sale and so keen it will thrill even the most jaded user. Please afford it the utmost in respect or a careless user may find himself in an ER needing stitches. It is a knife that's perfectly balanced in the hand and will make you wonder why you suffered for all these years without one. When you hold a knife like this it feels like an extension of your hand, not like something you're simply holding. For chopping, mincing and dicing, THIS is your chance to get one of the very best ever to have come from France.

Like all fine carbon steel blades, it will accept a razor sharp edge the likes of which most chefs are unprepared for--truly a new level of performance for the unitiated. It's ready to perform a lifetime of outstanding service working its way through the most tedious jobs in any kitchen, professional or amateur.

It's shape is the same as the larger traditional French chef's knife, allowing lightning fast action and pinpoint precision. Best of all, the knife was made prior to the 1987 conversion of Europe from the usage of crucible cast virgin steel to recycled "World" steel bought on the open market.

As such, it's vastly superior and FAR less prone to failure under duress. Has a 9-5/8" blade (it's 14.75" overall).

A rare find, especially in carbon steel, doubly so with an ebony handle, trebly so in this condition.
