    The foster's Bros. cake knives are also serrated, I have had several over the years with cocobolo handles and a few that had been upgraded to bone and ivory. The serrations were extremely fine almost like a hack saw blade.

    Chef's Sabatier is some where lost to time and I haven't seen a Foster's Bros in years. Like you said, many of them were sharpened or worn away and we will never know what they looked liked original. Most of the Foster Bros. ones were sharpened almost to the point were they looked like regular knives. I'll see if I have one lying around. here is one from the 50's

    I think the bottom one maybe a burns though. the two companies made some very similar designs for awhile.

    yea Burn's did make fine serrated around that time and FOSTER BROS did make bread knives .
    but the knife in this catalog micro serrated Sabatier and the Foster Bro's knives remains to be seen.

    Steely can you enlarge the photos in the series of 5 I posted earlier, It isn't the same knife but, it is a micro serrated Foster Bros. They did make them, They are rare though. I have had the Foster's bros like the ones in the catalog in my collections over the years (only 2 or 3) and only ever saw the one Sabatier that Chef had. The problem with the Sabatiers is that there were so, many different makers. THe Foster's was micro-serrated and the Sabatier was not microserrated but, had finer serrations then your typical bread knife. It had serrations similar to the Landers, Frary and Clark listed above. These are rare animals indeed. If I hadn't of seen and held the Sabatier, I wouldn't have believed it existed at all. I cannot tell you which Sabatier made it though, I don't remember.
