  • Details

    • All of the knives in the “1778” series are sharpened and whetted by hand. The handles and cutting edge of each and every knife are forged by hand by F. DICK specialist craftsmen and inspected in accordance with Friedr. Dicks' high quality.
    • Each knife is a unique specimen solely because of its handle that is made of selected plum tree wood. The core of this chef's knife consists of a wafer-thin layer of high-alloy Double X VG 12 carbon steel. This makes cutting particularly efficient and considerably lengthens the life time of the cutting edge. This keeps the knife sharp for longer and the cutting edge needs to be resharpened less often.
    • The development work on the 1778 knife series combined the technical advantages of carbon steel with those of a harmless, food-safe, stainless, high-alloy steel.
    • The cutting core of the knife that is based on a special formula contains ingredients like cobalt, manganese and molybdenum, guaranteeing a smoother texture and thus ensuring finer and more even cutting. This special steel was embedded in two layers of stainless steel. This skilfully combined the advantages of both steels.
    • The valuable knives of the 1778 series deserve very special attention and care in maintenance. Properly cared for, each of these knives will be a friend for life. For long-term protection, the blade and the natural wooden handle should be lubricated with a good, food-safe oil from the kitchen (e.g. olive oil). Under no circumstances should the knife be put in the dishwasher. Otherwise, the extremely fine cutting edge will become slightly bent and lose its optimal cutting performance. In addition, the handle is made of natural wood and is by no means dishwasher-safe. Ideally, you should rinse your knife with clean water immediately after use and then clean it with a soft cloth and dry it.
