Unused from at least the 1950's possibly older, 6.5" carbon steel boucher butcher knife with rosette riveted beechwood handle, and hand forged, hand ground carbon steel blade. 

This is a great example of a very old type of Thiers knife making and are likely the last of their kind. Thiers was especially important for hand made work knives done quickly but with great skill, meant to be inexpensive hard workers. Knives like this reflect the old 19th century and earlier equipment; old mechanical hammers for forging and grinding on stone wheels that the sharpeners lay on a bench over the spinning stone which Thiers is famous for and has long been replaced by more modern equipment.   

These are great for all sorts of kitchen work with their fine ground blades, these have a lof of taper on tang and blade giving the blade a stiff feel but with some flex at the tip, they work great on boneless meat as well as vegetables.

Blade is unmarked, handle is in the old style pre-miter cut (1950's- early 60's?) Made in Thiers France. 

French 'boucher' butcher knives are used similarly to a scimitar or bullnose butcher knives; large cuts, slicing chops and steaks. The design of this knife dates back to the middle ages and is still used extensively in southern Europe and France.

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 imperfections are part of the picture.
