Major apologies that this got double posted!
Hi guys - apologies if this kind of thing has already been addressed. I just bought a Sabatier chef's knife over Amazon, and I'm wondering if what I got is authentic. This is the knife that I bought:
The seller is actually a fairly old restaurant supply place in Boston. The picture on Amazon is exactly the same as the picture on K Sabatier's US website (http://www.sabatier-shop.com/kitchen-knives_15_au-carbone-vintage_cooking-knife-10-in__carbcui25pol.html ), and the price is very close as well.
In person the knife looks extremely close to the advertised picture, except that the pins are brass and the screened marking says "carbon" instead of "high carbon" ("high carbon" probably is the image for the stainless knife anyway). Nothing seems off or chintzy. Here are a few pictures:
Does anything indicate that this is a fake? I would greatly appreciate your expert advice.
