Please read our Terms below for details. This knife is even better looking in person than it is in our pics.We took our photos outdoors and there is some reflection and glare, as well as some uneven lighting on the blade of this knife. In person there are none of those things. This is just as good as it gets in a vintage German chef knife. This outstanding, fully hand-forged chef's knife was made by K. Seelbach in Solingen, Germany and is simply one of the finest vintage knives of this style you'll ever come across by ANY maker. The knife has been used but is found here still in quite nice condition with no problems of any kind. At 15.25" long with a 10" blade that's an extra-wide 2.5 across the base of the blade, it's large enough to handle any and all tasks in even the busiest professional kitchen, yet lithe and agile enough to be enjoyed equally well on smaller, more precise tasks like instantly mincing up a clove of garlic. As you'd rightly expect from this premium maker, it's full of the kind of hand-forged quality that once defined German knives as the best in the world.
SOLINGEN, GERMANY, along with their gear-wheel logo, and like all Seelbach knives, it's full of the kind of expensive, labor-intensive quality that earned them a world-class reputation for quality. Unlike today's mass-produced, hot-drop forged stainless steel blades i.By machine, it enjoys a fully hand-forged carbon steel blade, made from superior virgin steel. As such, it is quite superior to that made today by any but the most demanding custom cutlers. It is very comfortable in the hand and allows a comfort and control that eludes most knives--perfect for making cuts that are straight and true on each and every stroke. Handle is African ebony triple riveted in white brass over a full and tapered tang.
The overall presentation of the knife is one that tells the world that you are at the top of your form and are playing to win. A collector's piece though it may be, it would be an utter shame not to use it. Though it retains much of its original shine, like stainless steel, its blade is made of beautiful carbon steel, and will hold a razor's edge, with relatively easy honing. If you've never used a carbon steel knife before, you're in for a treat.Experienced butchers, chefs, and hunters know that only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes using it 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 a BRICK you're simply holding, like so many of those knives made today inevitably do--even some very expensive ones. Will also make an exceptionally surprising gift for the discriminating chef on your list.
