..... Mine are French ... I just bet Sabbatier is still in businnessI bought the wife a set of Burgvogels' a few years back .I tried to keep an edge on them with a steel but gave up .Fact just about 10 minutes ago I put them away after honing them on the old Norton stone .Rascals are sharp now .I dislike stainless steel knives but I guess that's all you get these days .
Anyone have an idea where a person could buy a good old carbon steel knife these days worth a damned ?
I'm no knife expert, but that is Damascus steel, isn't it? I hope I spelled that right.Best blades in the world come from Seki, Japan in my opinion.
My Dad loves cooking, so I've bought him a few made by Shun over the years. I was very impressed so I got myself one, I went with a Shun santoku 7" I love it, I actually look forward to the prep work when cooking.
There's tons of more affordable brands out there that are made in Seki, I'd strongly encourage anyone that cooks regularly to treat themselves to one.
I'm googling around trying to find out if Silky saw blades are from Seki or a different city.
