You hesitate between several ranges of K SABATIER Fully Forged Knives.
To help you , you will find in this page questions which you must put.
The first question concerns the steel with whom the forged knives are manufactured. The second is about materials used for the handles.
K SABATIER does not manufacture Knives Ranges of various qualities. Only steel, handle and design can differentiate the K SABATIER Forged Knives.
1°- WHICH STEEL DO YOU WISH ?
We are working two different steels.
We use CARBON STEEL, which was used by the Manufacturers in the past, because of its cutting power, facility to re-sharp the knives. But it hates water and change of colors with time.
STAINLESS STEEL is used for the majority of the ranges. It's a specific steel for the manufacturing of High Quality Forged Knives.
- CARBON STEEL :
----------> Vintage - Au Carbon Range HERE
- STAINLESS STEEL :
----------> Several Ranges are proposed
We manufacture several Stainless Steel Forged Ranges (Authentique - Bellevue - Proxus - Auvergne - Elegance). The differences between these ranges only concern the Design and the Handle.
Quality is the same.
You must then ask you one second question.
2°- You wish Stainless Steel Knives, but WHICH HANDLE DO YOU WANT ?
- Black Plastic Handle :
----------> Authentique Range HERE
----------> Bellevue Range HERE
----------> Proxus Range HERE
Between these three ranges, the difference is done by the design of the handle and the bolster (part of the knife between the handle and the blade).
- Wooden Corol Handle :
----------> Auvergne Range HERE
----------> Elegance Range HERE
Between these two ranges, the difference is done by the design of the handle and the bolster (part of the knife between the handle and the blade).
