The year 1905 was one of radical change and technical progress. It was precisely during these exciting times that the Swabian knife manufacturer Friedr. Dick scrutinised the knife designs that had been common up to that time. Knife handles had always been attached to the forged blade with 3 rivets. This meant that the knives of many knife manufacturers were identical down to the last detail. Friedr. Dick developed a unique series of knives that clearly stood out from all previous designs.
First-class sharpness by honing and polishing the cutting edge
High-end chrome steel XCrMoV15 for long edge retention, hardness 56 HRC
Half bolster as finger guard and for easy resharpening
Innovative design of distinctive steel rings
Friedr. Dick already had an eye for beautiful design in 1905 when it developed a knife series with solid collars. These replaced the round rivets that had been known and in use until then. Unfortunately, this early 20th century design has fallen into oblivion, but it experienced a revival in 2010. All knives in the 1905 series have a distinctive handle. Steel rings alternate with the high-quality and resistant plastic without gaps, making the handle a haptic as well as a visual experience. The F. DICK embossing on the knife blade completes the classically modern design of the series.
Yet the knives in the 1905 series can do more than just look beautiful. They also have very sharp quality features: The high-end chrome steel X50CrMoV15 keeps your blade sharp for a long time. This edge retention supports you in your daily use. The blade is honed twice and is therefore particularly sharp.
Safety is also taken care of. A half bolster finger guard protects your fingers, but you can also easily resharpen the cutting edge completely. In the 1905 series, many classic but also special knife shapes are available, leaving nothing to be desired.
All F. DICK knives deserve special care and attention when it comes to maintenance. Never clean your knife in the dishwasher. Ideally, you should clean the knife immediately after use with clear water and then dry it with a soft cloth.
