Thread: How old are pre-Sabatier Trompettes?

  1. #1

    How old are pre-Sabatier Trompettes?

    I just acquired a pre-Sabatier Trompette chef's knife. Can someone lead me to a history of Trompette knives and if this manufacturer merged with one of the Sabatier houses, or did Sabatier market their own knives (starting around 1874) using the La Trompette name? Is it possible to tell how old, at the least, a La Trompette without the Sabatier stamp
    might be?

    Thank you

    La Trompette is the trade mark used by Jean Auguste Sabatier. His knives were amongst the best of his time.

    Thank you for the links! It appears Jean Auguste Sabatier started using the La Trompette trademark round 1874. Do you know when his manufactory began stamping both "LaTrompette," and "Sabatier" on the same blade?

    Only seen it with this stainless from the fifties, meant for the North American market.

    I'd really like to, but for some reason I cannot post attachments.
