Handy 7" fine ground carbon steel blade Cuisine Massive / Nogent style chef knife in pristine, unused condition, only the surface has been wiped clean, no rust removal was needed. These are top shelf manufacture with a hand ground hand forged blade, a super clean fit up with an aluminum ferrule (likely suggests 1950's construction) and one piece wood handle.

No markings but these would have been made in Thiers or nearby Saint Remy. Really excellent work and condition here in a very useful size, the ebony handles have tiny hair line cracks as they are very prone to this with age but are otherwise tight and secure. 

Nogent style knives are characterized by their one piece wood handles, with a rat tail stick tang extending to the end of the handle and a round steel or aluminum ferrule. ‘Cuisine Massive’ was used to describe the style in Thiers, as Nogent was a rival knife making city.

These knives were made in or around Theirs, France likely in the 1950‘s. They are thin and light being hand forged on an old style 'Martinet' mechanical hammer and then ground by hand on stone wheels, very similaryly to how knives were made in the 19th and early 20th century, these techniques and equipment are now long gone.

Please note these can have small rust spots or imperfections, slight cants or waviness to the edge is possible as well. We do quality control on these but tiny imperfections are part of the picture.

New Old Stock, Vintage, and New Vintage knives do not come sharpened. Please request sharpening if desired in the order notes section of the cart page.
