New Old Stock Carbon Steel Knives

Thiers-Issard has recently found in their cavernous building a long forgotten stash of old knives. Unlike the other historical knives that we sell, which are old forgings that are recently ground and finished, these knives were ground and finished many years ago. These knives were originally sold under the "SABATIER Jeune Garanti" brand with a bunch of grapes as the logo. Thiers-Issard has left the bunch of grapes logo on the handles but with a few exceptions has polished off the logo from the blade and added the elephant with 4 stars logo.
NOTE: Not all the knives have the grape logo on the handle.

All of these knives, excepting the huge butcher's knife, have rosewood handles. The quality of rosewood is much better than any that I have seen used in many years. There is no longer any legal trade in good quality rosewood, as it should be, with the rampant deforestaton of the rainforests of South America. These knives pre-date the world's awareness of how this fragile ecosystem is being destroyed.

It is our opinion that of all the traditional style French knives that we offer, these are our favorite. The grinding is hand done, something that is generally not done today. Our supply of these knives is very limited, but if you see a Buy button next to the knife that you want, we should still have it in stock.

Stainless steel cutlery is certainly more care free, but nothing can match the edge retention and ease of sharpening of fine carbon steel knives like these fine old French knives. Of course, if you neglect carbon steel knives they will rust. Carbon Steel knives have an amazing ability to keep a sharp edge. Over time, carbon steel knives will develop a pleasing patina. This is a unique opportunity to own French chefs' knives of historical interest.
