K Sabatier 10" Chef knife. Hand forged carbon steel blade with 'nogent / cuisine massive' style beech wood handle.

This is a used version of the new old stock we had in stock in the past, it has been sharpened in a little giving it a slightly thicker edge than when ‘brand new’. It still has lots of life left and could be made thinner by removing metal from the sides of the blade in the future.. This one has a little bit of a bend on the tip 1/3 of blade, this has been accounted for in the price..

Nogent style knives are characterized by their one piece wood handles, with a pin-through tang and round steel or aluminum ferrule. They are thin and light with small bolsters. ‘Cuisine Massive’ was used to describe the style in Thiers, as Nogent was a rival knife making city.

These knives were made in Theirs, France in the 1950‘s. They are thin and light with good edge life and excellent sharpenability. Hand forged on a 19th century water powered mechanical hammer.

Being handmade there are slight differences between knives and they may have slight imperfections that would be consistent with handmade knives of their day such as a slight wavyness in edge and small bends, and it should be noted as well that the wood is a bit dry from all the years in storage and the root based dye on the beech wood handles can come off on hands for the first several uses. If you can deal with these small issues you are rewarded with a knife that has a great cutting feel and is truly a piece of history!

Since 1834, K Sabatier has been the dedicated brand of Sabatier Aine & Perrier, a family cutlery business started by Philippe Sabatier in the early 1800’s. The business has been passed down 8 generations, and has remained located in the hills of Thiers, France in the village of Bellevue. They continue to run their company with pride and precision, keeping all aspects of the manufacturing process within the area of Thiers.
