Razor sharp! Biggest darn Dexter I’ve ever seen. This one is almost a full 12” . Features 3/4 tang, three rivet scales (handles) and a 5” 1/2 handle with knuckle guard.
Marked “Dexter Southbridge, Mass” etched on the blade, and “38712R Dexter” on the scales.
Knife has been professionally polished and sharpened it is RAZOR SHARP. It may have some nicks and scars from use.
*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.
