Myfavorite woodworker-tool supplier, Lee Valley Tools, has just announced a line of kitchen knives made for them by Thiers-Issard of France, which seems to market in Europe as Sabatier.http://www.leevalley.com/garden/page...,45509&p=45509
According to the LV catalog these are stainless, not carbon.
They're probably quite good, though. Everything I've ever bought from Lee Valley is absolutely top-notch. :cool:
