New old stock Pradel Douris 13" carbon steel chef knife, 18.25" overall length with beautiful old tightly grained rosewood handle.
Old style forging and hand grinding on these knives. We found three and graded them according to their condition. This one is excellent with only a wide scratch on the handle as damage.
This knife represents some of the finest culinary knife making from the post WW2 period. Hand forged after drop forged carbon steel blade with fine bright hand ground finish which looks like a fine Naxos emory on a "sorciere" double leather wheel grinder.
