Dexter has become a leader in professional cutlery since being founded in 1884 (they actually produced knives before that but introduced the Dexter name in that year). This one was produced before they became the Russell-Harrington Cutlery Co in 1933.
This is one of the biggest vintage slicing knives I’ve ever run across – with a blade actually a touch larger than 14”. Carve your bird with this and you’ll certainly catch the eyes of everyone at the table!
Blade has been completely redone – sharpened, cleaned and polished. Original scales have been sanded and refinished. 3/4 tang with 3 rivets to secure blade to scales.
Marked: “Harrington Cutlery Co. Dexter, Southbridge Mass” on the blade.
Knife has been professionally restored, polished and sharpened it is RAZOR SHARP. It has 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.
