    Is this a good score? vintage sab

    i just bought a sab off ebay for $67. i like the handle and bolster, plus the blade seems to be in good condition and not heavily sharpened like many vintage sabatiers...tell me your opinion please, because im not good at figuring out the value of used sabs...i was prepared to go up to around $110-120 for this knife. i think i got a pretty good deal. am i right? i dunno, it was love at first sight!

    you did good. They are as valuable as someone is willing to pay for it. I've seen the same knife sell for $10 and I've seen them sell for $200 in roughly the same shape and I guaranty you both guys thought they were getting a deal. figure around $100 to $125 and your golden. you did good.

    No help as to the value, but if the steel is as nice as the profile, it should be a pretty great knife for the money.

    yeah the value of these vintage sabs seems to be inconsistent. i actually plan on using this knife as one of my work beaters.

    Congratulations! You've got a very nice piece, I think. This has its price, though. May I ask for pix when you have cleaned it up??

    well I was bidding on it myself but, missed the end of it while I was on the line. Chef Au ritz was one of the better Sabatier lines. This is probably from the 60's or 70's.

    yeah. ill put up some cleaned up pics in 2-3 weeks. im gonna try and clean up the blade with some vinegar baths and then work on the grind....i plan on leaving the handle the way it is for the time being. maybe soak it in mineral oil...

    For what it's worth, I'd sell it for $95 on my site, and i try to be on the fair side. Nice catch!
