1960's K Sabatier Jeune (crown & grapes mark) 14" carbon steel chef knife in excellent used condition.

1960's K Sabatier Jeune (crown & grapes mark) 14" carbon steel chef knife in excellent used condition. The blade had some light rust when found but had escaped anything heavy and the blade had been sharpened very little, possibly only only having been steeled. 

Heavy convex blade in the heel tapering out to a thinner middle and tip, with classic post WW2 hand forged after drop forged integral bolster/ferrule with tapered tang. Hand ground in the old Thiers style. 

K Sabatier Jeune which were made only in the 1960’s as an offshoot of the old K Sabatier family business in Thiers.
The story I got from the family is that there were two brothers that ran the business at the end of the 1950’s, they both had families of their own and the brother with more kids thought he should get more of the revenue because of this. The older brother disagreed so the younger (jeune) broke away to start his own enterprise which ran for about 10 years.
