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.This is a very fine and rare vintage knife, beautifully executed in the style of a classic French Sabatier chef's knife, but made in Massachusetts by Dexter-Russell-Harrington in their finest Connoisseur line of cutlery--model #S49-10. In a style no longer being produced, it has always been somewhat of a rarity, since most American users have always shied away from the classic French forms made by Dexter and other American producers in favor of the more generic ones, but also because these knives were always far more expensive, when new, than the actual Sabatier knives on which they were based. That's truly a shame, too, because it's as fine a knife as any comparable one produced in France, demonstrating that when the good-old American cutleries wanted to, they could make knives on par with anyone. As you'd expect, this knife was magnificently hand-forged from the highest-quality stainless steel and all handles are beautifully crafted from the finest rosewood, selected for its beauty and graining. Unlike their more common American-style knives, this one employs a somewhat cylindrical bolster and a more truly triangular blade to permit a faster action and more precise control.
If you've never before used a Connoisseur knife, you're in for a treat. They are as comfortable and effective in use as they are beautiful in appearance.With balance and pinpoint control, you'll find no end of uses for it in chopping, slicing, dicing, mincing and just about everything else in the busy kitchen--always at a level that's as good as it gets. Condition is very lightly used but excellent with no problems of any kind.
It is sharp now and ready to go to work at the highest level straight from the box. In this quintessential French chef knife size (9.75" blade, 14-5/8" overall), this may very well be the only knife the serious chef will ever truly need.
