Little known to consumers but well-known worldwide to chefs, butchers and culinary students, Serco knives are among the finest blades being produced today, though this knife, known as a gyuto (a Japanese-made chef knife produced in the western style), is well over 25 years old and is no longer being produced by the company. For the purpose of this sale the blade has been given a WICKEDLY sharp professional edge that will shave a man's face.
Blade is triple-riveted onto a sealed ebony handle over a full tang in a profile that is distinctly French, utilizing a longer, rounded bolster which allows for maximum contact between the fingertips and the knife, permitting maximum control. The performance of such a knife is noteworthy and if you've never before used one, you're in for a treat. It's perfectly suited for virtually any task in your kitchen, large or small, and is every chef's busiest knife. It has been used and sharpened with some scuffs from hasty honing but it's still in very good condition, with no problems of any kind. In a style no longer being produced, it has always been somewhat of a rarity, since most American users have always shied away from the classic French forms in favor of the more generic German ones, but also because these knives were always far more expensive, when new, than the actual Sabatier knives on which they were based.That's truly a shame, too, because it's as fine a knife as any comparable one produced in France. With balance and pinpoint control, you'll find no end of uses for it in chopping, slicing, dicing, mincing and just about everything else in the busy kitchen--always at a level that's as good as it gets.
