    Lots More Things from my apartment sabatier, watanabe's , something from portugal.

    Up for sale are a few knives that I have been carrying around for a good ten or fifteen years. I just don't use them and one I never have.
    one is a 12 inch Lion Sabatier in stainless, it is a great knife the fit n finish are pretty good and you can get it razor sharp. The knife is surprisingly nimble for a knife this size. $130 new will sell for $100 i pay the shipping in CONUS

    The second one is an IVO 12in stainless slicer made in Portugal in the style of Sabatier. It is new never used. Years ago I had a Portugese cook that I bought a set for and he absolutely loved these knives especially the slicer. He raved about them so much that I bought myself a slicer and never used it as I had some vintage Sabatiers I was in love with at the time. $75.00 shipped

    I have used this knife as my breaker for years. It has no name or makers mark. It is definitely American made, vintage 1960's 12 inch carbon steel blade, looks like rosewood handles, If you put the time in on the stones this thing will shave your ass. $40 shipped

    Next up a nice set of Watanabe's These are his standard series. this particular set I bought about ten years ago, these are not the set I misplaced. On his website he no longer offers this particular set. If you were to break it down it would run about $400. These are brand new never used and still have the lacquer on them. I am asking $300 with conus shipping. or trade me something cool.

    It was just one of those really slow crazy nights,You know those nights when you see what will blow up when you throw it into the fryer nights or if your knife is sharp enough to shave your ass kinda nights.

    Just for anyone looking, I have a Watanabe base nakiri and I love it...was my first carbon knife. The ferrule came loose and slides forward and the handle ain't that great, but the steel takes a wicked edge and reminds me of white#2.

    Your nakiri looks nicer and is finished differently than the one I picked up in '09...I'm sure costs have been cut in the last decade, so yours is probably of better quality.

    Yeah, I think his early work is much better quality in regards to steel , he has made a few changes over the years do to rising costs. that nakiri is paper thin and laser sharp even after ten years in a box.
