Unlike contemporary knives made by Sabatier, this vintage Thiers-Issard Sabatier possesses a hand-forged blade contemporary ones are hot-drop forged, i. By machine made from superior carbon steel, with a degree of detail and finish that is simply not possible in the economic reality of today. Though its blade will rust if not properly kept dry between uses, as is the case with all carbon steel blades, this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superior performance of carbon steel, which hones easier and sharper, providing the kind of authority with every cut that a chef deserves.
It's RAZOR SHARP now, having been professionally edged for this sale. Also unlike the contemporary knives of today, the knife has a feathered tang, which provides it a measure of balance and "feel" that set it apart. Hold it in your hand and you'll immediately recognize a natural center of gravity in the center of your palm--where it belongs. Modern Sabatier chef's knives use a tang of uniform thickness (it's cheaper to produce, easier to fit with the handle, since that can be done with automation, not the skilled hands of expensive guild craftsmen, as was the practice in the past).
Like all fine French knives, it possesses the classic profile of elongated somewhat cylindrical bolster. In any serious chef's kitchen, this is the primary tool for reducing large piles of vegetables into tiny piles of aromatic goodness for inclusion in one's finest recipes. For chopping, dicing and mincing, it has no equal and one could use it all day without reducing one's enthusiasm for its performance or its beauty.In every way, shape or form it is a classic to be reckoned with, found here with everything one could hope to find in a vintage Sabatier in terms of size, shape, materials, craftsmanship and condition.
