    I recently bought this Sabatier K that is old enough to be an antique. Can anyone help me pinpoint when this knife was made? The stamp is deep and reads: "France, Sabatier K, Acier Fondu, Garanti"

    The nogent handle is a little more rugged than your typical nogent handle, but it's solid and adds a lot of character. The blade's profile is like a huge butter knife, maybe a slicer? If anyone knows what this profile is, I might consider leaving it the way it is. Otherwise, I would reprofile it to a traditional French sabatier. Does anyone have a prime example of a traditional French sabatier profile that I could copy? If not from this knife's time period, would a Misono Swedish gyuto be the closest modern representation?
