Refurbished thinned and re-profiled La Trompette Nogent style chef knife made in Paris.

Antique La Trompette 8" Nogent style chef knife made in France after 1890. La Trompette won a gold medal in 1878 which is referenced on the blade, and remained part of the La Trompette markings until their demise after WW2 (in the 1960's?). After 1891 the mark 'France' was added to allow them to be imported into the USA in compliance with new import laws in the USA. Later owners of La Trompette brand added their names to the markings, Dufresne was added to the markings until 1920 when the company was purchased by M Pouzet whose name is found from 1920-40 production. In 1940 with the Nazi invasion of France production stops until after the war when La Trompette is reborn as Sabatier Trumpet Brand, still with the name La Trompette 1878 gold medal in the marks.

This knife was originally wide and longer.
