Knife has been professionally restored, polished and sharpened it is RAZOR SHARP. It may have some nicks and scars from use.
I hate to use the word “rare” it’s very overused, usually for things that truthfully are not. But in this case I have to make an exception. This one is something special something very rare, not just because it is a 100 year old Henckels, but finding these with the Demmler & Schenck stamp is just about unheard of.
This is a 13” chef knife. Blade is actually 12” 1/2 long but is called 13” in the trade. Full tang, triple riveted. Blade has some nicks and scars, but it’s 100 plus years old so that is certainly to be expected.

*High carbon steel knives are highly sought after knives loved by professional and home cooks alike due to the quality of the steel, the edge it maintains and the hardness that is not matched by other knives. If you don’t believe me, take a look the opinions of Alton Brown. Please note these are NOT stainless steel knives, they do require a little bit of care (prompt washing and drying after use, occasional sharpening, etc), but hey, if you can maintain a cast iron pan you’ll find this a piece of cake. Over time they will develop a patina, and even stain. But they are probably the best quality steel knives you’ll ever use.
