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. We're often asked for finer vintage carbon steel knives in smaller sizes, primarily because they're the hardest ones to find in usable condition, but this one should exceed the requirements of ANY chef.
Hand-forged probably sometime just after WWII, it's just as good as it gets and looks better than most in the process. Measuring 7" long with a 3.5" blade, this is an rare and beautiful pattern for such a piece.
Look at how beautifully wrought its faux tortoiseshell bakelite handle is; notice the flared bolster. These are expensive, labor- eintensive manufacturing steps, and it should be perfectly clear to anyone that this knife was made for someone of means.In fact, it still is! It was made with a hand-forged carbon steel blade, pierced through with a rat-tail tang. Condition is nothing short of amazing. Though its blade retains much of its original factory shine, it is carbon steel, not stainless, and is guaranteed to discolor normally with use, and to rust if not kept dry. Condition is OUTSTANDING; handle has NONE of the hairlines that too often bedevil antique knives of this construction and there are no problems whatsoever.
It outshines and outclasses anything in the modern marketplace by a country mile and will serve a useful lifetime if properly cared for (it has already outlived a few owners already). Knives like this usually become available only after being pried from the cold, stiff fingers of their dead owners.
Do your kitchen arsenal a favor and don't pass on this gem, either for yourself or as an exceptional gift for any hard-to-shop-for chef on your list! An instant heirloom that anyone would be proud to pass along to their progeny.
