This is a Santoku with fluted edge from K-Sabatier from the series Authentique Olivier,

K-Sabatier, kitchen knife from the town of Thiers in Auvergne France . A glorious history of blade making.
The cutlery has a history dating back to before the French Revolution.
In July 1834 Bonnet S. registered the brand as a manufacturer of cutting tools in Thiers. The manufactory enjoyed international success. It was continued by the other successors Gabriel and Pierre from 1882 with the brand name K-Sabatier.
The success of the manufactory was due to the authentic typical goiter, the pleasant grip and its balance. The knife manufacturer is now in the eighth generation of the family, under the direction of Philippe Bournilhas.
It is still in the same place in Thiers – La Monnerie Bellevue 57 and is used to this day the same traditional techniques. The knives are all drop-forged. The type of steel used is 1.4116, stainless – Z50C13 with a hardness of 55-58 HRC.
At TYPEMYKNIFE® we offer two different handle materials. POM, a very resistant plastic for the 1834 series with black coloring and suitable for everyday work in professional kitchens.
