These knives as all have high carbon blades, except for the 8" Ideale which is stainless steel. Both have Ebony handles and are light and nimble, as you want a chef knife to be. The handle of the Nogent Knife is a solid piece of ebony with a white brass ferrule at the bolster. Our Ideale Style Knives have the tang sandwiched between two ebony scales, and held with three pins.

We recently discovered these beautiful historical knives, in Thiers, France, long renowned as one of the world’s greatest cutlery centers. These were hand-crafted decades ago, so slight variations make each knife one unique. Because these are truly vintage, we have limited quantities, and when our stock is gone, they will be gone forever. For care, hand-wash and dry immediately.

  • nogent is marked inox, and looks stainless

    e, 4/27/2019 7" nogent
    Very good knife, right in keeping with the old Nogents. I wouldn't quite call this a chef knife- it's not as tall as a chef knife at the heel. It's more a utility knife, especially if you have big fingers. Small hands may not notice this distinction.
    The blade is stamped "Saufa Inox" and it looks like stainless to me, but time will tell. It did not come greased like most carbon steel. It's new-old-stock and looks and feels like a Nogent, which is great. I knocked off one star because the description implies a carbon steel chef knife. You can see in the pics it's quite shiny and less cheffy.
    Anyway, if you haven't felt a Nogent, these are full 'rat' tang, meaning the tang is full, but shaped like a rat tail inside the wooden handle. This gives a full-tang and allows the knife to be forward balanced, which I prefer. It has a light feel and very good blade and edge. Very versatile, beautiful, and fun to use. Plus it's got a very cool story.
