Vintage Marin-Style Kitchen Knives by Sabitier-Jeune
A chance visit to a famous French knife maker in Thiers turned up a trove of 60-70 years old high-carbon steel Kitchen Knives in four lengths – 5, 8, 9 and 10 inches, all fitted with tropical wood handles and solid Brass pins, or in the case of the 5" knife, silver colored rivets. These are extremely well-made, solidly built, endlessly useful, “do-everything” kitchen knives – stamped with the famous Sabatier-Jeune mark. The Marin-style knife is characterized by very stiff, straight, rigid blades fixed to relatively large handles. They are undeniably handsome but the additional “secret plus" of these is that they are high carbon steel.

Today, high carbon steel blades has been displaced in the non-professional world by stainless steel because high-carbon blades will discolor and stain with normal use – i.e. not remain shiny. But high carbon blades can be made much sharper than stainless steel and will retain that very sharp edge much longer – and outside of eBay, they are really hard to find these days. (Frankly, we can understand the appeal of stainless steel in a dinner table knife, but not in a working kitchen tool.)

Quantities are limited, so get them while they are available.
