The interplay of the material, shape and design of the PURE METAL steak and table cutlery results in an exceptional experience with intuitive handling. With the PURE METAL series, DICK now also offers cutlery for the table.
The blade shape of our steak and table knife took its inspiration from our successful AJAX chef’s knife. With the new interpretation of the AJAX blade shape, whose design dates back to the 1930s, we have once again succeeded in balancing tradition and modernity. The modern ‘Bauhaus’ style has already been the leading style from the 1920s onwards. The stylistic language and functionality are defining elements of the design. This is clearly reflected in the shaping and the clear line of our steak and table knife’s handle, with its emphasis on puristic industrial design.
F. DICK chef’s knives are the epitome of great knives trusted by professionals. The new PURE METAL AJAX table knife marks a new chapter in our knife artistry and cutting culture - now also in a tableware version. The development of the PURE METAL AJAX steak and table knife embodies our long tradition in the construction and production of high quality tools and the tough conditions whereby they prove themselves in professional kitchens. It was important to us to create a table knife that equals the quality standards of our chef’s knives and at the same time meets the various uses, requirements and design aspirations of our customers.
A decent steak knife plays a big part in tucking into a great steak. A knife that glides effortlessly through the meat already sets the taste buds flowing. And a beautifully set table with an attractive knife only add to the enjoyment and culinary experience.
The exceptionally wide blade surface, and the curved and super sharp cutting edge of the PURE METAL AJAX guarantee a clean cut without sawing and tearing. One cut of the blade is all it takes to slice through the meat. The meat juices stay in the meat, the meat fibres are not torn and the result is a taste experience to savour. Our PURE METAL AJAX steak knife has a smooth, narrow edge – rather than a serrated edge – ensuring a clean cut through the meat, no matter what the cooking level. The AJAX has also been designed with every type of food in mind, making it a true all-rounder and an eye-catching tableware addition. Not just for fans of F. DICK knives.
All knives lose sharpness over time, especially when used on porcelain. But the specially designed curved blade shape means that only a small part of the cutting edge is ever in contact with the surface, without the entire cutting edge being damaged. But should the cutting edge nevertheless lose sharpness after some time, you can very easily resharpen the smooth cutting edge yourself. Simply use the same sharpening tool as you do for your chef’s knives.
The steak and table knife use the same tried-and-tested steel quality as our premium chef's knives. The exceptionally high-quality steel alloy ensures edge retention, wear resistance and maximum sharpness. This optimised steel quality promises the consummate F. DICK sharpness coupled with unparalleled hardness. The result is a long lifetime of the cutting edge that cannot be matched by the stainless knives conventionally used as cutlery.
The production - a combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern production technology - defines the quality, functionality and performance of our products. Plus, every knife comes completely rounded and lies comfortably and securely in the hand without any edges digging in.
The unique handle design prevents the knife blade from coming into contact with the table. Ever. So there is no need of a knife rest for your used knife to stop your table or other surfaces from getting dirty.
We have taken a successful step in also offering knife craftsmanship for the table with the AJAX PURE METAL steak and table knife. It impresses with an unusual design coupled with an exceptional cutting experience. There was immediately demand for a fork to match the knife.
The PURE METAL steak and table fork impresses with 4 longer, sturdy tines. These are perfect for holding and picking up thick pieces of meat. The weight is evenly distributed so that the fork is balanced and comfortable in your hand. You can split potatoes and vegetables perfectly with the slightly wider shape of the fork.
The design of the fork follows the clear line and styling of the AJAX PURE METAL knife - here the focus is also on the purist industrial design.
F. DICK tools for chefs are the epitome of great tools and professionals have relied on their quality for decades. The development of the PURE METAL steak and table fork embodies the long tradition in the construction and production of high quality tools and the tough conditions whereby they prove themselves in professional kitchens. The steak and table fork uses the same tried-and-tested steel quality as the F. DICK forks. This high-quality steel alloy stands for stability and wear resistance.
Cutlery plays a big part in enjoyment at the table. When the knife slides effortlessly through the meat and the fork splits the vegetables and picks them up easily, this already makes your mouth water.
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.
