Forged in Thiers France, this is the top shelf series from K Sabatier and is named for the date of the register of the K trademark. It features a cryogenically treated Z50C13 stainless steel, POM handle and handmade leather sleeve.
The deep freeze treatment gives this steel increased stainlessness, flexibility, toughness and edge life, thereby increasing its ability to be thin ground. This series has a lighter weight, sleeker cutting feel and better edge life than the standard stainless series from K Sabatier.
Please note, these can have cosmetic scratches or small imperfections in handles which will not impede the performance of the knife. This is par for the course on these knives and is part of how they sell them for a very reasonable price.
Aine & Perrier Sabatier (aka K Sabatier) of Thiers France has remained a family run business since its inception in the 1830's. The registered K trademark was recorded in 1834 making them arguably the oldest of the many Sabatier companies.
