I saw this pan on a German BBQ forum site. It looks to be a heavy forged carbon steel pan and I would love to have a pan like it. Do any of you guys know where I might be able to find such a pan?

pans and a like.

Not the same at all. The pan in the OP seems to have the handle out of the same piece of steel. Either that or it has been formed into the pan. And the scalloped edge is pretty cool. My Grandmother used to have one almost like that. With I knew where that ended up.

I think 99% of the performance of a skillet comes from the material and the depth/slope of the sides. The skillet referenced is carbon steel, is fairly thick, and will perform accordingly. The skillet in the op is of a similar size, made from the same kind of steel and has sides of a similar depth and slope. I can see absolutely no reason for the scalloped edge aside from a purely aesthetic perspective. Unless it was intended to be used for tarte tatain, and still, that's pretty much only a cosmetic thing.

Looks to me to be stamped from sheet steel. That would explain the one-piece handle and the fluting on the sides, just like a coffee filter...

Most steel pans you can by today are not nearly as thick as this one. Some old chefs I know swear by their steel pans that have been carbonized (?) over many years.

I was going to say, I see those on German cooking sites. Maybe someone from Germany could ship one to you?

You might want to try an Asian store. They sometimes have nice, heavy, and big carbon steel woks. I bought one that was 14" across and use it in the fire.

This is as close as I could find, not quite the same though.
