Well thanks, we must be in the presence of greatness (a qualified knife inspector), one who can identify fakes at a glance.
Rather than just be dismissive, why don't you talk in facts? Maybe if you bought and inspected a set it would be more believable - or aren't you allowed to handle sharp objects on your own?

Nothing too sharp, might deflate the over inflated ego ;)

I've heard about this too. I remember researching knives a couple years ago and these aren't the real "Sabatier" (not that the OP insinuated this). A lot of companies just add the "Sabatier" name to knives. The real ones could be "Sabatier K"??? I can't back this up because I can't remember where I read it.

Anyway, it got me confused so I ended up buying Victorinox knives at the time.

BTW, I actually think this is a good price for a knife set and I'm not having a go at the deal!

The name (or brand) Sabatier is famous in the cooking knife industry. This name originated in Thiers, France at the beginning of the 1800s. There are many knife manufactures using Sabatier as their brand as a result of the oftentimes confusing history of the Sabatier name in France. Some Sabatier manufacturers are considered authentic, and some are simply using the reputation of the famous Sabatier name for marketing purposes. Generally speaking among connoiseurs of fine cutlery, only knives manufactured in Thiers, France from well established manufacturers from the 19th century are considered "genuine" Sabatier knives. This is similar to how "Champagne" only comes from Champagne, France.

There are many manufacturers in the other countries that also use the Sabatier name on their products. However these products are generally manufactured cheaply in mass production processes in China and other countries. These manufacturers generally use non-traditional and lower quality semi-forged and welded production technigues.

The use of the Sabatier name is an anomaly of "branding" because the name was used by many different companies before intellectual property or trademark laws were fully established in France. Today, in France, to use the Sabatier name, the brand must also include a second word or mark to distinguish the brand from other Sabatier manufacturers. As a result there are many makers such as Sabatier-K (the oldest), Sabatier Lion, Sabatier Diamant, L'unique Sabatier, Sabatier Provence, and others. In 1979, the various holders of the Sabatier brand in France, decided to form an association to defend the brand name.

Among the many Sabatier manufacturers in Thiers, France, they all generally provide high quality cutlery using traditional forging techniques that developed in the area in the early and mid-1800s. Most of these manufacturers use a "fully forged" technique and hand shaped and sharpened process using the local skilled labor.

Fully forged means that three of the four parts to the knife (blade, bolster, tang and handle) are forged from a single piece of steel. In this process, a single piece (cylinder shaped billet) of steel is heated where the bolster will be, and squeezed from the ends to induce a bulge. Then, the entire piece is heated again and forged (stamped) to the shape of the blade, bolster, and tang using forging dies in one operation. Afterwards, a clipping tool is used to cut the forged piece to the rough shape of the knife. Finally, the handles are riveted on, and the final shaping and sharpening is done by hand.

Sabatier Aîné & Perrier is the oldest Sabatier knife maker still in existence and operated by the original family located in Thiers, France. This prestigious brand has been part of the heritage of Thiers, the French Cutlery Trade Capital, for more than 150 Years.

A bit of History

In the early-19th century, two prominent families carved out the reputation of SABATIER knives : the SABATIER's of Le Moutier (lower town of Thiers) and the SABATIER's of Bellevue (Upper Town of Thiers). The Sabatier of Le Moutier company survived in many incarnations until the brand was finally bought out by Cuisinox in 1979. Nowadays, the only surviving family is SABATIER of Bellevue, which is still located at the same address and still owned by the ancestors of the original founder, Philippe Sabatier. It continues to make high-end kitchen knives, as 8 generations have done, under the corporate name : ETS SABATIER AINE & PERRIER

The beginnings of Sabatier K

In 1834, the SABATIER's of Bellevue added the initial "K" to their name to set themselves apart from the SABATIER's of Le Moutier. This "K" is a very old maker's mark in Thiers and can be found in the town archives, engraved on the Silver Tablet of Cutlers, dated 7 June 1813 under number 231.

Blatant copy and paste....

#16
Hmmm semi skimmed milk only £1.65 :whistling:

Nice find though.. H&R
#17
I suspect these are Chinese 'Sabatiers'. May be a bargain for a £6.50 if you just want some cheap knives.

I won't swap my real Sabatiers or my Analon pans. Call me a snob but I get real pleasure from using good tools.
#18
I have a set of these and they have been great, no complaints.

These do not look good.

Ok for spreading the butter, maybe...

But some people might be happy with this quality.

Just make sure that after you buy these, that your Sundays aren't taken over by getting up early to protest at toffs hunting foxes with beagles.

I bought a set of these last year & am now a Hunting Sabatier.

Taylor's make very nice knives, I have some of their French manufactured Veritable Sabatiers & they're excellent :) the ones on offer here are from their entry level range

for anyone not wanting to break the bank £6.50 for this set's a great deal ... heat added :thumbsup:
#23
just sent my mum to sainsbury's. they were priced up at 25.99 on the shelf, when scanned came up at £6.50. Got hold of 7 units. going to test them tonight, if they are no good they are going back! Just to confirm i wont be putting them on ebay, they are for family and friends!
#24
hmmm, my sainsbury in Ipswich still scan them at 25.99. How come?
#25

hmmm, my sainsbury in Ipswich still scan them at 25.99. How come?


Mention to them that it is a national reduction and ask them to call HQ to confirm the new price. if it helps, the store that we used was Wolverhampton town centre.

Forgot to mention, Heat Added!!
#26
good price!
#28
just rang my local store in huddersfield, this price is not nationwide it just end of line stock for some stores :( still scaning theough at full price £25.99
#29
I owned some of these a few years ago and they are OK as knife sets go. However if you pick up a genuine Sabatier knife in John Lewis or similar you can see that they are not the same by any stretch.

The really expensive ones are much heavier and the blades thicker with proper handle joints etc. and will last a lifetime. These cheaper ones will end up with bent tips and the dishwasher will corrode the joints after a year or two.

£6.50 is a steal though - so heat added.
#30
This truly is a Killer deal. Great knife set all it is missing is the blood (from chopping meat of course)

Great Avatar! It looks like the type that would carry these knives.
#31
Heat added - sadly not reduced in my store. Price checked at £25.99 so well done on your bargain OP!
#32
I have just spoken to two local stores and they said they're selling it off in certain store where they're changing the layout of the store and getting rid of some home stuff.

However I just phoned one store and they said it was £19.49 weird!!
#33
Newbie here. Thought this was a brilliant deal so dashed off to Sainsbury's ( Taunton) - still on sale at full price. I even asked someone to scan them in case ...... but no.

So voted hot, if you can get them at this price.
#34
I went to Sainsbury's 9elms and they scanned at the £25.99 price
#35
Have just spoken to my store in swindon and he has said that it is store specific only and even if you phone HQ it wouldnt make a difference .
#36
Same at three stores I checked, full price - good find though, one to look out for. OP, is it possible to give the barcode on the side, sometimes they could be different. I picked up some glasses for about 20p which are about 80p upwards in all other stores too. Also saw pots/frying pans priced differently in stores.
#37
lol... 272 degrees and unless I'm mistaken 1 person has managed to get a set. HUKD's heating system at it's best.
