It is still in perfectly useful condition, ready to work straight out of the box at the very highest level in even the most demanding kitchen, meat locker or on even the most heavily salted boat (fishermen and fishmongers also love these). It has one of the finest hand-forged carbon steel blades you'll ever find on any knife, hafted in the old Nogent style, with a full and hidden, rat-tail tang and reinforced at the bolster with a white brass ferrule at the critical juncture where blade meets handle, which is solid palisander wood. Truly, it's a thing of beauty, rubbed to a soft glow now from time and touch. Its massive carbon steel blade was hand-forged at a time when the French were producing the best kitchen knives in the world.
The entire piece is beautifully weathered and it just begs to be held. Though it has some considerable collector value, it would be a shame not to use it, if you're able. Carbon steel blades of this vintage can hold a razor's edge like no other and it can still do more than its share of butchering of game or livestock. For this sale we've had it edged by Ross Cutlery of downtown Los Angeles--the best in the business--and it's now RAZOR keen in a way that very few knives ever are. It is guaranteed to thrill.
Its handle is as warm and comfortable in the hand as they are easy on the eye. Comes with a whopping 11-5/8" blade (a whopping 17.25" overall length) that is 2.75 wide and weighing in at an impressive 21.5 ounces. If you're simply collecting, you're in luck--this is a rare opportunity to add some authenticity and quality--not to mention SIZE--to your collection with this massive knife that user and collector alike will come to regard as an heirloom. And don't listen to the anybody: SIZE.
