This is the quintessential vintage French chef's knife offered in an XXL size, perfect for any chef who values the fine quality that only a vintage Sabatier may offer.
Without doubt, it's the most useful and heavily relied-upon knife in any serious chef's kitchen. It was made by the company in thier fine "Professional" line, with the company's oval logo and name on its handle and stamped into its blade. Unlike contemporary knives made by Sabatier, this vintage knife possesses a hand-forged blade contemporary ones are hot-drop forged, i.
By machine made from superior virgin carbon steel, with a degree of quality that is simply not possible in the economic reality of today. Though its blade will rust if not properly kept dry between uses, 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. Also unlike the contemporary knives of today, the knife has a tapered 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. Condition is excellent--it's 100% with no problems of any kind and in one very key way BETTER than when it first left the factory.
This exceptional knife was recently given an EXTREMELY sharp professional edge and must be treated with extreme care or will land a careless user in the ER needing stitches. In the old days, many classically trained French chefs didn't consider a knife fit for professional use until it received its first "working" edge upon receipt from the factory. Sushi chefs continue this tradition with their rituals of water stones and the resulting keen of their blades is virtually alien to casual (and to many professional) users of Western indoctrination.
This knife comes pretty close to just that kind of sharpness and you'll have no trouble finding a myriad of uses for it. Blade measures 12" and the knife is 17" overall, more than capable of tackling any job in any kitchen, amateur or professional. An exceptional find by any measure and an heirloom-quality knife to delight user and collector alike.
