Knife has been professionally restored, polished and sharpened it is RAZOR SHARP. It may have some nicks and scars from use.
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) and are still in business 3/4 tang, hardwood scales (handles). Pretty knife.
Marked “Dexter Southbridge Mass” on the steel and “44A10 Dexter” on one scale the scale)
*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.
