    If you ever seek out vintage nogents (or other chef's knife) they are almost always 12-13" in length.

    However, I get the impression that there are so many because they weren't used as frequently as smaller blades. Could be wrong though.

    From what I remember, that thing was closer to 20 inches.

    Yeah, be prepared for more of that when you eventually find the shop. If you manage to get any service at all, don't expect to get any questions answered without the initial sigh and eye-roll.
    Especially if you only talk English.

    It is of course partly understandable that they develop this kind of attitude with so many tourists crowding up their store. But if you lie about being a pro bib gourmand-chef, like I did, they suddenly snap into service mode.

    I would put of at least two or three hours for the visit. You need at least that to go through all the nooks and crannies of the shelves and the basement where you find the interesting stuff. An MAN do they got some interesting stuff!

    There is a blog from a German woman who lives in paris with her husband and is absolutely clueless about cooking. She tries to remedy that by attending various cooking classes of which there seem to be untold numbers in Paris. The blog is regularly featured in SPIEGEL Online, the biggest German online news page. She has written a blog entry about Dehillerin, too:
