Sabatier Loire?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

SO, I know that all Sabatiers are not born equal, far from it...I know some are just bad knives wasting the unprotected name...


On that note I just picked up a Sabatier Loire stainless bread knife on ebay for 9$ was it worth it?


Does anyone have experience with these knives?


Also, any suggestions for sharpening serrations?

Sabatier Loire 8" Slicer goes for $9.99 on Amazon, which also includes shipping if you have Amazon Prime.  I don't have first hand experience with this line, but I don't believe that it is one of the recognized French Sabatier manufacturers. At least one comment I saw on the web indicates it is of Chinese origin.  So, my guess is that you paid approximately the going rate for the knife and that it is probably a Chinese "copy".

Pohaku's covered the basics.  It's not a traditional Sabatier "brand."  So it's not like a regular Sabatier moved production from France to China.  It's impossible to set a value on a knife without seeing and playing with it in the flesh, but all of the indicia say it's junk. 


Worth what you paid?  $9 is a fairly low hurdle to clear; only you can say.

Alright so its unanimous! I had come to same same conclusions via amazon for some but this one seems to be an older piece, here's hoping it's a decent rip off!


Otherwise, it was 9$, not so bad if it's an ok knife! And pretty enough to be gifted (hehehe)


Thanks again guys!

So it's been a half year since you got the knife, how is it performing?

I have the same brand 8in. chef knife, and it's a dull knife, but easy to use and pretty nicely balanced. Easy on the eyes too, as it's identical to the Sabatier Provence.

I'd love to tell you about it but I took the easy way out...Christmas gifting it ;)
