In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. This outstanding vintage carbon steel chef knife is being offered here, made in Solingen, Germany by Rheingold Stahl, a company VERY well known by professional and amateur chefs in Europe as producers of outstanding cutlery for every purpose. Having been professionally edged for this sale by the good folks at Ross Cutlery in downtown Los Angeles--the best in the business--this superb piece comes to you wickedly, RAZOR sharp and guaranteed to thrill even the most jaded user.
With its fully hand forged blade with integral bolster and tapered tang this is every chef's most heavily relied-upon knife in the kitchen--the one that can and often does do it all. 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 fully lives up to the outstanding reputation of all Rheingold knives. It was made long ago in Solingen, Germany (I'm estimating 1950's--60's), and is a superb representative of the company's ability to produce professional cutlery as good as any other--some of the finest knives ever produced for the kitchen.
It's never been easy to find carbon steel Rheingold knives in the USA, and it's getting harder all the time, though you'll certainly want to, since the blade is forged from pure virgin steel (as was the norm prior to 1987) rather than from recycled steel stock, as is the practice today. The difference is real-I've had several contemporary knives SNAP in mid-use, but I've NEVER had a vintage one do it, and as a serious collector of vintage kitchen knives, I use the vintage ones in my own kitchen FAR more often. A very slight amount of contaminant in recycled steel can be made quite evident under the stress of even normal usage. This knife has excellent balance and truly feels like an extension of your hand, not like something you're simply holding.As the photos show, it's a piece that has seen some considerable use but remains functionally as good as new and ready to provide a lifetime of outstanding service. It employs a German-style bolster between blade and handle, to permit greater control with the wrist and permits an easier rocking motion when chopping. Measures 15-5/8" long with a firm 10-5/8" blade--ideal for chopping, dicing and mincing and also for slicing things like turkey, ham, roasts, salmon, onions, tomatoes or anything else unlucky enough to get in its RAZOR sharp way.
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 a truly unique gift for that hard-to-shop-for chef on your list!
