Sabatier knives are 100% forged stainless steel knives and are all hand-made by artisans in France. The knives are made entirely from one piece of metal; no joints, welds or sintering means that no food can get trapped. A unique French high carbon steel is used to ensure an optimal cutting edge to produce the best stainless steel for the knife. Sabatier is used by many world renowned chefs and has been used for generations of cuisine professionals.
