The K Sabatier ‘Authentique' Carbon series have a classic French profile, drop forged full tang XC75 carbon steel blade with a round bolster and a sleek riveted handle. They are somewhat thinner and lighter than a typical German chef knife, with good cutting feel and food release. They can handle a wide variety of tasks, making them a great choice for any avid cook.
**Extra care is required with carbon steel. No soaking or dishwashers! Dry well in between uses to avoid rust. Blade will develop a patina (discoloration) with normal use.
