K Sabatier Olive Wood Nogent Paring Knife
Originally designed for use in professional French kitchens in the 1960s, these knives represent the functional ideals and construction practices of that era, but have been updated with stainless steel blades and beautiful olive wood handles. They are named “Nogent” for their ferrule, the ring that connects blade to handle, which makes the knives both very strong and easy to wield with control. Along with their light weight and narrow, gently pointed blades, the ferrule makes them the perfect choice for peeling, slicing small vegetables, and detail work like prepping garnishes.
Each blade is crafted of high-carbon stainless steel, making them resistant to rust and easy to care for. Stainless blades can be left for guests to use throughout the evening, for cutting off a wedge of lemon or slice of fruit, without worry. In contrast, carbon steel enthusiasts can opt for these nogent beauties from the 1960s. Olive wood handles show a beautiful, swirling grain that makes each knife unique.
Care: Wipe the blade with a clean cloth after each use or hand washing, and store it in a block or a spot where it won’t come into contact with other knives. To maintain the blade’s edge, you can employ your favorite method of sharpening; we prefer to use Japanese water stones. Oil the handle on occasion as necessary.
Each knife has a 3.35-inch blade.
Crafted in France.
