The knives are extremely well made and the 3 stainless steel rings around the Handle give the knives the feeling of strength as well as being a very stylish design feature. I can say without any doubt that the “1905” series knives are the best knives that I have ever used.”

How to protect the blade: the correct storage

Knives should always be stored in a suitable knife block, on a magnetic board or in a protective edge guard. Under no circumstances should a finely honed and highly polished blade comes into contact with other hard materials such as metals, ceramic or stone. Enjoy the feeling of possessing something really quite special and treasure your knife.

A touch of oil for the wooden handle

The days of applying oil and powder to your knives every day belong back in the 19th century. However, for long-term care, knives should be treated now and again with quality cooking oil from the kitchen (e .g. olive oil). This is suitable for the blade as well as for the natural wooden handle.

Caution

Precisely because of the unique material structure and the special cutting technology of the “1778” knives, they should not be used for chopping bones, portioning lobsters, or be misused in any other way.

We recommend using a cutting board made of wood or plastic. However, even the best knife used on the best boards will lose its sharp edge over time.

Frequent and repeated use of a sharpening steel considerably prolongs the sharpness of the blade. Because of the remarkable hardness of the knives in the “1778” series, we recommend using the Dick titan sharpening steel.

If home sharpening or whetting ceases to have the desired effect, we recommend that you have your knives ground or sharpened by a qualified specialist.
