Hand forged after drop forged hand ground carbon steel 1950's to early 70's Sabatier Professional slicer in good used condition. With fresh edge and an oil refresher on the handle. It had seen some light rust be has been sharpened very little and the blade is very full. A great example of the hand work that was the norm in post WW2 French knife making.

Sometimes these square bolstered French knives are referred to as "Canadian pattern" knives, having been originally being imported to Canada. Keep dry when not in use to avoid rust, carbon steel will naturally develop a patina with use.

These knives were made in Theirs, France in the 1950‘s. They are thin and light at the tip half and stout at the heel for tough work. Hand forged on an old style 'Martinet' mechanical hammer and then ground by hand on stone wheels, very similarly to how knives were made in the 19th and early 20th century, these techniques and equipment are now long gone.

They are lighter and springier than their modern contemporaries with great cutting feel and are super easy to sharpen, don't over-polish them with fine Japanese stones, these do better with a coarser edge (equivalent to 1000 Japanese grit stone) and kept up with a fine honing steel. The advice to use a steel before you use your knife is the result of these kind of knives in a busy professional kitchen; steel them once you feel the edge starting to lean to one side.
