The expert smiths of Au Nain have exceeded themselves with the sacrificial knife "Le Sacrifice". Let's get to know this awe-instilling, nearly 1m-long knife a bit better. This is truly a rarity - as much for the product range of the renowned French cutlery maker as it is for our website.

A knife that does not fit in the picture:

*Sacrificial knife "Le Sacrifice" (70cm)

Have you ever seen a knife of such dimensions before? It is 98cm long in total, and its 9-to-10cm-wide blade alone measures 70cm. Blades such as these are used in the Arabic and Jewish communities for halal slaughter of bovines, lambs and other animals. In France, these knives are still used for various purposes, e.g. home slaughtering in rural areas. The stainless steel blade of "Le Sacrifice" is shaped in such a way so as to maximise the effectiveness of a single cut to the carotid of the animal, allowing for the correct rite of exsanguination.

Au Nain do not mass-produce "Le Sacrifice", meaning that you will get a unique, surprisingly well-balanced knife with a total weight of 2.1 Kg.

The sacrificial knife is pictured, along with the set of steak knives "Au Nain Le Thiers Horn", on a chopping block "Le Gaillard", also available on our website.
Total length: 98cm. Weight: 2.1Kg.

Tip: the purchase of such a knife for own use or as a gift is worthy of consideration. This visually striking knife can be used as an ornamental piece in a country home kitchen or sent as a present to someone with a thing for the unusual.
