SABATIER, a french brand, a Thiersâ€™ brand
The Sabatier knife was born in Thiersâ€™ Basin at the beginning of the 19th century . It carries the name of a local family whose ancestors created a shape of knife destinated especially to professionals in catering ( Butchers, restaurateurâ€¦).
It appeared at a time when brand protection did not exist. In this way, several companies hold rights on the Sabatier brand accompaning it with a word or a logo, symbol of the manufacturer. In 1964, the patronimic name became a protected brand, and in 1979, the original owners of a Sabatier brand decided to gather in an association to combine their forces to prevent from new registrations by others and to defend the attached values to this brand.
Since 1812, the SABATIER LION BRAND made knives in the respect of tradition and know-how of its illustrious predecessors.
After Sales Care
Our knives are made for food use only. They can be washed in a dishwasher, although we recommend washing them by hand and drying them immediately with a soft cloth. Indeed the chemicals used in many dishwasher powders and detergents can cause harm to metals, particulary when different types of cutlery (knives and forks plus kitchen knives) are in the dishwasher together. There is then a risk of leaving marks on the metal blade of the knives. Also the pressure of the water jets can spoil the blade.
To maintain the sharpness of the blade we recommend a steel to be used regulary to maintain a sharp edge. This will keep it as sharp as the first time it was used.
We recommend using our traditional sharpening steels or our special sharpener the CARBCUT 2.
