THIERS-ISSARD HAVE BEEN HANDCRAFTING KNIVES IN THIERS, FRANCE UNDER THE SABATIER BRAND WITH THE FOUR STAR****ELEPHANT LOGO FOR OVER 150 YEARS.

THESE KNIVES ARE OF HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE AND WHEN THESE ARE GONE T WILL BE NO MORE.

CARBON STEEL KNIVES BY SABATIER HAVE AN AMAZING ABILITY TO KEEP A RAZOR SHARP EDGE..THIS IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN FRENCH CHEF KNIVES OF HISTORICAL INTEREST. ONLY ... read more
