Still, in one key way it is even better than a new one, having been professionally honed up for this sale to be RAZOR keen in a way that too few knives ever are; even many of the most jaded chefs will find a revelation of performance in such an edge. If you've only used stainless steel knives until now, you will find a refreshing experience of outsanding performance in using a fine vintage carbon steel blade such as this.
Easier to hone to a razor's edge and easier still to keep it that way, carbon blades require the user to keep them dry to prevent rusting, but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superior performance provided. Knowledgeable chefs and butchers alike have always preferred carbon to stainless blades, and once you've used one, you'll soon know why. Best of all, this knife predates by many years the industry's wide conversion in 1987 from the use of virgin steel in the making of fine knife blades to the use of recycled steel instead.
The difference in quality and ease of maintenance is substantial, the performance is outstanding. Like all fine knives, it has a fully forged tang that extends the full length of the knife, tapering towards both ends for maximum balance. When you use a knife like this, it feels like an extension of your hand, not a mere object that you're holding.
It's superb aesthetics are matched by it's performance. It's the perfect knife for peeling or paring, doing light-duty chopping or mincing, creating paper-thin slices of turkey breast, tomato, cucumber, onion or whatever.
