In a way that only vintage chef cutlery seems capable of, this knife just feels perfect in the palm of your hand--balanced, light and strong, ready to interpret your most creative culinary ideas into reality with blazing speed and precision. Its hand-forged carbon steel blade was crafted with integral blade/bolster/tang construction, tapering towards both ends and hafted with ebony scales that are just beautiful, as you can see in the photos.
What appears to be a hairline on one side of its handle is not--it is a natural anomaly in its graining and perfectly normal. Blade is stamped "Hoffritz, NY, Germany, " and predates the industry's conversion from virgin steel to recycled, offering a level of craftsmanship and quality that are now lost to the economic realities of our age. At 15-3/8" long with a 10.25" blade, the knife comes in the quintessential chef knife size and configuration, every chef's best friend in the kitchen, when it's time to chop, dice, and slice large quantities of vegetables, fruits, meats or anything else into neat, bite-sized morsels for inclusion in your finest recipes. If you've never used a carbon steel knife before, you're in for a treat.Experienced chefs know that only a true carbon steel blade can consistently attain the razor-sharp edge that makes cooking a true pleasure you must wipe the knife after every use to avoid stains and rusting, but will be richly rewarded with superior performance! This knife is perfectly balanced and will make you wonder why you suffered for all these years without one. When you hold a knife like this it feels like an extension of your hand, not like something you're simply holding.
