K Sabatier 12" Chef Authentique Carbon
A massive chef knife! Designed for mincing, slicing, dicing. It can even handle the tougher foods like squash and bread! The K Sabatier ‘Authentique’ series have a classic French profile, drop forged full tang 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.
For 8 generations, the French company K Sabatier have been producing excellent professional level chef knives. Still a family run operation, the folks at K Sabatier have extensive relationships with the craftspeople in Thiers, France. From forging to handling to final fit and finish, the methods and materials have changed over the last 200 years, but the attention to detail has been maintained.
