Please read our Terms below for details. From one of the finest cutlery companies in the world, in one of the hardest sizes to find, comes this outstanding professional-quality Chef's knife from Sabatier's fine PROFESSIONAL line of knives. It has been used and sharpened--EXPERTLY--and still is in excellent condition, as the photos show. What the photos don't show well is that it belonged to a chef who loved it, and who expertly gave it a refined edge so keen that the knife is truly elevated a level above what was already extraordinary.
A tenet of old-school French chef's wisdom is that no knife is fit for use until it has been given it's first "working" edge, AFTER received new from the factory. Sushi chef's also adhere to this ideology. This knife has been given such a working edge and if you want one to put to use, you just won't find better than this at double the price. Your satisfaction with it is fully guaranteed here. It was made in Thiers, France with a forged carbon steel blade/bolster/tang with handle made from a tough polymer that resists stains, water and other forms of stress.
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 perfectly balanced 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.
In terms of size, the piece is among the hardest to find, since most chefs won't part with theirs until they're well worn out. 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 unititated. 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 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 5.75" blade (it's 10" overall)--beautifully balanced in your hand. A rare find, especially in carbon steel, doubly so in this condition.
