Very rare and hard to find--10 chef's knife by Oxford Hall. The blade is forged from a superb quality high-carbon stainless steel, to allow easier re-honing and upkeep. The handle is beautifully crafted with nicely grained Rosewood, triple-riveted onto a full tang. An exclusive design element to these knives, is the third oversized rivet on end of the handle--helping to balance the knife in your hand by keeping the "feel" in the palm of your hand where it belongs. Oxford Hall knives of this time period are universally praised for their cutting edge design, as well as for their cutting edge.Notice the very large rivet at the pommel, and the slightly forward-swept angle of the bolster/finger guard. Details like this are expensive to manufacture, and are not seen very often with more contemporary knives, even the more expensive ones. The craftsmanship, design, efficiency and effectiveness in use with these knives, not to mention the durability and lifelong usability, has proven over time that Oxford Hall is one of the finest cutlery brands ever manufactured in Japan. The sleeve shows some wear from storage, but the knife is brand new and has never been used--it is simply amazing! I sell hand picked items that are mostly useful, sometimes unique, and always in the best condition that I can find. I tend to look for quality and condition--and I'm pretty picky--so I search a lot, but find very little that I consider worthy of offering here in my little store. Any condition issues will be pictured and noted in the description.
