Seller: Top-Rated Seller crisdomingues (706) 99.8%, Location: Cremorne, NSW, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 183870699705 SABATIER, a french brand, a Thier's brand. The Sabatier knife was born in Thiers' Basin at the beginning of the 19th century. It carries the name of local family whose ancestors created a shape of knife destinated especially to professionals in hospitality. Since 1812, the SABATIER BRAND made knives in the respect of tradition and know-how of its illustrious predecessors This singularly outstanding knife was hand-forged in Thiers, France by Sabatier in their Jeune line (with a K and cluster of grapes for their logo) and is as fine to use as it is to gaze upon. It may appear merely big, bad and beautiful at first glance, but it is even more impressive in person, a wolf in sheep's clothing, possessing some of the finest carbon steel in its blade ever affixed to a handle for use in preparing food. That's quite a statement, but well-supported by its performance. With its PURELY French design, solid beechwood handle, brass rivets over a tapered tang and RAZOR sharp, hand-forged carbon steel blade, this beautiful knife is hand-forged in a design that has LONG been favored by the French chefs and butchers for its versatility, ease of maneuverability and comfortable grip. And at 19-3/8" long with a 13" blade it comes in one of the very largest size you'll ever find in such a knife. Knives of similar design can be found in French paintings dating back to the Middle Ages, so old is this design, but I date this one to the early-mid 1900's, as evidenced by its materials and construction. Regardless of its exact age, its performance and quality are timeless. With its razor sharp edge and its overwhelming size, it's absolutely perfect for slicing anything that you wish when you wish to slice it in one stroke. For slicing and trimming meats, carving roasts or processing fish--you name it--you will look far and wide before you find its equal. Handle is a solid piece of beech, in REMARKABLY good condition with no chips, cracks or looseness at all. If you've never used a traditional French butcher knife like this before, you're in for a treat. Its carbon steel blade takes a razor's edge easily, unlike today's overly-hardened blades, which nearly require you to be a blacksmith to re-hone. For the purpose of this sale this exceptional knife was recently given an EXTREMELY sharp professional edge and must be treated with extreme care or will land a careless user in the ER needing fingers. In the old days, many classically trained French chefs didn't consider a knife fit for professional use until it received its first "working" edge upon receipt from the factory. This knife comes pretty close to just that kind of sharpness and you'll have no trouble finding a myriad of uses for it. Performance is unparallelled. The most outstanding quality of the knife is, though, the comfort and balance it enjoys in your hand--ergonomics meets classical antique. Like all superior chef's cutlery, it feels like it belongs in your hand. There was a time when every serious kitchen in France had at least one knife in this style, but times have changed. If you appreciate the beauty and functionality of a great knife, YOUR time has come to acquire one.
