Please read our Terms below for details. NOTE: Because we took our photos outdoors the mirror-finish on this knife's blade picked up some reflections and glare but in person it has none of those issues. This superb antique breaking knife was made in Southbridge, Massachusettes by Dexter when the company was still called The Dexter Harrington Company, more than 75 years ago. It was made with a superbly hand-forged carbon steel blade hafted onto a fine and tightly-grained old-growth rosewood handle with an EXTRA-wide bullnose butcher blade that most knowing chefs or meat-cutters would kill for.
Dexter didn't make very many in this size owing to their enormous price tag and those few that found a home were either worked to death or are lovingly clung to by their devoted owners. Having been professionally honed to a RAZOR sharp edge for the purpose of this sale, knives like this are useful not only for cutting meats and breaking down a side or quarter of beef but equally adept at slicing foods thinner than thin, all on a single stroke. In short, it is SUPERB, and we fully guarantee your satisfaction with it. Both blade and tang are beautifully tapered--the product of skilled men and women in the United States, for whom pride and craftsmanship were the everyday norm, rather than the exception. This is the ONE knife you'll want to take with you on a desert island if that desert island is also a slaughterhouse or meat locker!
At this size (11.5" by 2" blade, 17 overall), it's among the largest you'll ever own or even see but its real measure is in the palm of your hand where you'll immediately recognize the quality of materials, the craftsmanship and balance that are unmatched in the modern market. This knife handles incredibly well and will serve equally well for virtually any user, amateur or professional.
As you can see in the photos, condition is excellent, with no problems of any kind and the entire piece is simply gorgeous. An excellent opportunity to add an heirloom thoroughbred to your stable of fine cutlery--and a whopping big one at that!
