Please read our Terms below for details. If you've been using or collecting vintage Sabatier knives you're probably aware that there are several differenbt brands, several levels of quality, even within those brands.Well THIS knife comes from the FINEST level of quality from one of the TOP brands. Made in Thiers, France, this classic vintage chef's knife comes from Sabatier's upscale "Jeune" line of cutlery, some of the finest knives ever produced for the kitchen, and a finer example of a stainless steel Sabatier chef knife would be difficult to name. It measures 14-5/8" long with 9.75" blade, representing absolute salvation for any chef who requires the finest possible knife for use in just about every task in even the most demanding kitchen. Despite its being well over 50 years old, it is still in rock-solid condition with no problems of any kind, with a blade professionally sharpened for this sale by the good people at Ross Cutlery in downtown Los Angeles, the best in the business.
As such, it's FAR sharper than it was when new, guaranteed to THRILL even the most jaded veteran users. Handles are fine rosewood and condition overall is superb.
It will last a lifetime providing quality performance in every cut. You simply can't find Sabatier knives of this vintage anymore, though you'll certainly want to, since the blade is forged from pure virgin steel (as was the norm prior to 1987) rather than from recycled automobiles, as is the practice today. You might not be aware that European cutlery industry as a whole began to use recycled steel stock in 1987, but this knife was made prior to that, and the difference is real-I've had several contemporary knives SNAP in mid-use, but I've NEVER had a vintage one do it, and as a serious collector of vintage kitchen knives, I use the vintage ones in my own kitchen FAR more often.
A very slight amount of contaminant in recycled steel can be made quite evident under the stress of even normal usage. Like all great knives, it's hand-forged in a one-piece stainless steel blade/bolster/tang construction, triple-riveted onto fine rosewood handles. Also like all true French chef knives, it has a rounded bolster between blade and handle to allow maximum control with the fingertips (German knives have never adopted this design, which is yet one more reason why knowledgeable chefs prefer French knives). Ready to provide a useful lifetime of chopping, dicing, slicing and all-around prepping your finest foods with a measure of speed and precision that will leave you smiling. An heirloom-grade knife guaranteed to thrill user and collector alike.Our store's inventory is searchable using the search field or may be browsed by clicking on categories, with each option found on the left side of the store's homepage.
