Of course with the knives of the Premier Plus series the composition of the steel and the special hardening technique are the most obviously important factors. The steel elements are made from the alloy X 45 Cr Mo V15, in which each component has a special part to play: chromium strengthens the steel against wear and tear, molybdenum gives it resistance to corrosion and carbon its absolute hardness. This first class substance is then forged into a perfectly balanced and ergonomically shaped knife.
Particularly worthy of note, however, is the sophisticated design of the handle. A special manufacturing technique results in the blade and the handle being so tightly linked that not even the finest crack or gap is left. Unlike traditional knives with a handle housing, it is impossible for food residue or liquids to penetrate. As is standard with the Friedrich Dick company, each finished knife of the Premier Plus series is sharpened and honed by hand. Cutting becomes an experience – this is something you can expect from Friedr. Dick.
