Sabatier Frères kitchen knife 12cm
We have chosen ‘Sabatier Frères’ as the prime example of the many French-made kitchen knives labelled ‘Sabatier’. This superb professional range is manufactured by Coutellerie Au Nain, a small specialist firm in St. Rémy-sur-Durolle, the traditional cutlery region in central France. The secret of ‘Sabatier K’ lies in its structure. The massive forged tang goes right through the length of the handle, giving strength and an excellent balance. Knives are riveted with aluminium. Handles are made of a newly developed combination of ABS/fibreglass. A sophisticated moulding process has eliminated any gap between handle and metal part of the bolster. The Paring Knife is a great all-rounder. Its short, narrow blade makes it ideal for slicing smaller fruits and vegetables, peeling vegetables and precision tasks such as hulling strawberries, seeding chillies or deveining prawns.
Au Nain, since 1885, applies its professional expertise to the household cutlery and tableware. Three generations later the brand Au Nain has conquered almost all the catering trade and imposes a standard of quality and robustness required for demanding professionals. Chefs, butchers, bakers, fishmongers, hotel and schools appreciate the many knives and utensils ranges combining the mastery of stainless steels and the performance of new materials used for sleeves.
