The anthracite blade is coloured by means of a special environmentally friendly process. This gives the knives their pure industrial beauty. The hammered finish on the blade underlines its uniqueness and functionality. The oak handle symbolises endurance, power and strength The extremely thin, sharp blade makes cutting a "weightless" pleasure. The hammered technique also creates many small air cushions between the blade and the food being cut. This makes it easier to remove any food from the blade surface and reduces the amount of food that sticks to the blade.
The oak handle symbolises endurance, power and strength. The sharp and clear line of the handle reinforces the knife's aesthetics. We use the finest robust oak wood for the handle. Oak trees are known for their longevity; a tree can grow over 800 years old. The oak tree is shrouded in legend and steeped in history and is known for being one of the main deciduous trees in Europe. Ships were built with oak as long as 1,000 years ago and until today, oak barrels are used to store special whisky and wine. So it's no wonder that we chose an oak handle for our new unique series of knives.
We use a special martensitic, stainless and nitrogen-alloyed steel in the DarkNitro series. This results in a unique combination of excellent cutting performance, exceptional hardness of 61 HRC and special corrosion resistance. For a perfect material structure, DarkNitro knives are forged in a special process and then ice-hardened at temperatures down to -100°. The very fine microstructure of the steel allows for simple sharpening, resulting in a very sharp cutting edge.
The high-quality DarkNitro knife series is manufactured with a passion for craftsmanship using modern production technology. We recommend cleaning by hand with a soft cloth and a mild alkaline detergent. Wipe the knives after cleaning to ensure that they are thoroughly dry – this will prevent any pitting on the blade For long-term protection, you should occasionally “ pamper” the oak handles with food-grade oils (e.g. olive oil). To do this, lightly rub oil into the handle. This prevents the ingress of moisture and also refreshes the natural grain and colour of the wood.
