Premier Plus: the sum of many clever details
You can tell the forged knife by its bolster, the thickening between the blade and the handle, and by its continuous tang. Premier Plus was developed for ideal balance, edge retention, and ergonomic properties.
The stable back of the blade is used for fine gristle, for example, but also for breaking seafood shells.
Small vegetables can be cut and minced with the front section of the blade.
The curved blade design is ideal for both rocking cuts and slicing. This blade section allows cutting of almost all food materials.
The back section of the blade is used for cutting tough and difficult materials, as it allows easy application of force.
The wide blade side is also used for flattening and shaping prepared food. It also provides sufficient space between the hand on the handle and the cutting board.
How to spot quality
Just pick up a common knife and hold it for a second; then a DICK Premier Plus. You can feel the difference immediately: cutting is now a pleasure.
The Premier Plus is a thoroughly forged knife, perfectly balanced and ergonomically shaped. Just look at the form of the handle – unique.
The special Dick manufacturing process fastens blade and handle securely together, without a gap. This means that, in contrast to handles being assembled, even the smallest residues of food or liquid are kept away.
Another important feature is the steel alloy and the hardening process. Our knives are manufactured from the alloy X50CrMoV15, containing chromium for wear resistance, molybdenum for corrosion resistance and carbon for hardness, and because only a sharp knife is a good knife, each Dick knife is controlled several times before it leaves our factory.
You receive perfect quality and can enjoy cooking.

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.
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 ofa sharpeningsteel 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.
