Lamson and Goodnow 14" Chef

199.00

Lamson and Goodnow - founded in 1837 - is one of the nations oldest cutlers. This beautiful 14" chef knife is a perfect example of Lamson's older knives. Made in the mid 20th century, the knife still has a lot of life left to live. It was designed with big cuts in mind, but the blade is thin enough near the tip for fine slices. The carbon steel blade took a great edge that will hold during use and touch up with ease. The wooden handle is in excellent condition and is secured with large brass pins. At 20" over-all length, no job will be left undone.

Carbon steel can rust if neglected. To avoid corrosion and rust, be sure to wash and dry your knife immediately after use. Leaving moisture or acidic material on the blade will cause corrosion. Every carbon steel knife will develop a patina, which is healthy. The patina helps protect the knife and will look grey/blue in color. Yellow or orange is rust or corrosion. While carbon steel may require a little more care compared to a stainless knife, the benefits of extreme sharpness, edge retention and ease of edge maintenance are worth the extra attention.
