Help identifying Sabatier?

Eiron | Feb 22, 2012 10:09 AM

I've got a friend's old Sabatier 12" chef's knife to fix. I'd like to give him an idea of its worth, but I know so little about these old knives that I'm not sure I'm getting the correct info from Da Googles. Unfortunately, I can make out no markings on the blade, so the only clues are the handle & bolster styling.

Questions from my research:
Is this considered a "Nogent" knife?
Is "Nogent" a style or a manufacturer?
The full bolster appears to be cast aluminum, wrapping the tang & encasing the back edge of the blade; is this indicative of a particular manufacturer?
Is the "Sabatier" logo stamped on the handle indicative of a particular manufacturer?
Is the triple-riveted handle indicative of a particular manufacturer?

Thanks!
