I have been going through some of my old old stuff and came across this cheap old knife that I have always liked. I have no idea who makes it maybe someone here recognizes it? It's the profile that I like, I have looked through eBay but can't seem to find this type of scimitar, thin with a lot of curve to it.15609

It kind of looks like a 10-inch breaker that has been sharpened down a fair amount. Victorinox?

What kind of scimitar is that mike? That thing is a beast!

It's a Dexter and the blade is much thinner than my Dexter.

I get them from the knife guy who comes in to the restaurant and swaps out the knives the guys use. I have a black one and a green handled one at the restaurant now.

Mike, that looks great. But the tip is not as upswept as the one Chef posted. I would think it's the upsweep that he is loving. If my memory is right, I would say the one Chef posted is very close to the one Salty has.

Yes it looks like a victorinox.

Not sure, the profile looks right. But, the amount of steel missing is quite a bit.

I gave a PIF one away several months ago that was very similar. I got it from Son. It was a Sabatier carbon that I put an olivewood handle on. Killer scimi!

My RH FORSCHNER CO Victorinox is Model 803-10. I've had it some 20 years and did not get it new.


The blade looks taller than the one you posted. 15 min to find a better pic.

Another +1 to the Forschner Scimitar with half the blade removed from a long career.
