Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: We take our photos in natural light outdoors and as a result there are sometimes reflections or shadows or glare shown in the blades.
In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. From one of the finest cutlery companies in the world, in one of the hardest sizes to find, comes this outstanding professional-quality chef knife from Sabatier's world-famous Thiers-Issard ("Four Stars and Elephant") line of knives. This knife has been used and it still is in excellent condition, as the photos show, with a full blade and a handle entirely free of cracks or other problems. It was made in Thiers, France with a forged carbon steel blade/bolster/tang with handle made from a tough polymer that resists stains, water and other forms of stress. For this sale we've had it professionally edged by the good folks at Ross Cutlery in downtown Los Angeles, the best in the business and as such it's now FAR sharper than when it was new--FAR sharper than most knives ever can be.If you've never used a carbon steel knife before, you're in for a treat. Experienced chefs know that only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes cooking 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 something you're simply holding. In terms of size, the piece is among the hardest to find, since most chefs won't part with theirs until they're well worn out.
Like all fine carbon steel blades, it will accept a razor sharp edge the likes of which most chefs are unprepared for--truly a new level of performance for the uninitiated. It's ready to perform a lifetime of outstanding service working its way through the most tedious jobs in any kitchen, professional or amateur.
It's shape is the same as the larger traditional French chef's knife, allowing lightning fast action and pinpoint precision. Best of all, the knife was made prior to the 1987 conversion of Europe from the usage of crucible cast virgin steel to recycled "World" steel bought on the open market.
As such, it's vastly superior and FAR less prone to failure under duress. Has a 5.5" blade (it's 9.75" overall)--beautifully balanced in your hand. A rare find in this size, especially in carbon steel, doubly so in this condition.
