As mentioned in my post about CSN Stores’ offer last month, I am to review one of their quality products which as per my sharp choice is a 25-cm Taylors Eye Witness Veritable Sabatier Cooks Knife. I love outdoors……..I love cooking ……..I love fishing……….I love camping………I love hunting (although it’s been quite a long time since our last expedition….:-( )………of course, it should follow that I love knife…….especially high quality cutlery that could withstand the rough and tough demand and condition of outdoors environment.
Sabatier Company of France. The product information probably provided by the company states that it is a well balanced knife with blades made from a single piece of high carbon stainless steel that is precision ground and hand honed for a perfect cutting edge. It also states that traditional Sabatier - 3 solid brass rivets secure the tough, high-density handle firmly to the blade for reliable, superior performance. Now, we have the chance to verify portion of that statement; to check if this cook’s knife could perform as expected and live up to the reputation of its manufacturer.
One indication of a good product is the availability of fake or cheap imitations in the market……..and gladly (or should we say sadly) this Sabatier knife has a lot of inferior clones (apparently from China), only suggesting that it (original) has a fine quality at the onset. So, if you will decide to acquire one, be very wise in buying. Don’t unsuspectingly fall victim and end up purchasing a copycat product way below your money’s worth.
For features such as safety in handling, ease of usage and over-all control, this is a minus factor……….but then, it could be considered as only a small downside. After all, the suitably constructed handle guard compensated for this and with its pronounced lip, it could probably prevent or minimize slipping even when the hand is wet.
25-cm Taylors Eye Witness Veritable Sabatier Cooks Knife is a great knife. As for me, it lived-up to the reputation of the Sabatier Family as a world class knife makers.
Of course, whilst there may be better knives in the market, they are priced much higher and basically grouped on a different category. Considering the reasonable price tag that this Sabatier Cooks Knife carries in CSN Stores, it is, by all means, worth having in my kitchen ………… and probably yours too! I pretty much sure that its 20-cm version would be fun to use as well. Paging Alexandra of CSN! :-) I’m just kidding. c”,)
