AJAX travels the world

Friedr. Dick thought up a very special campaign at the beginning of the summer. The AJAX chef's knife – now one of the most popular F. DICK products – is to travel around the world with the help of its owners. Anyone who owns or has a Red Spirit AJAX can be involved. In a short video, the AJAX is to be shown at your favourite place and then symbolically passed on to the next knife friend. Whether at your own barbecue, in the restaurant at work, on holiday by the sea, on your next city trip or while strolling in the forest. The AJAX should travel to as many great places around the globe as possible. The journey of the red knife begins in the factory of the long-established company in Deizisau, where it receives its final finishing touches after numerous manufacturing stages and is safely packed for its onward journey. It is then used daily by chefs, barbecue chefs, butchers, hunters and amateur chefs all around the world. 

All participants will be entered into a prize draw with a total value of over 1,000 euros. The winner of the first main prize can look forward to a special experience: An in-depth visit to the competition training of the National Culinary Team German guarantees exclusive insights into the work of the professional chefs, including practical tips from Team Germany! An overnight stay for 2 people is included. Our second main prize will make the hearts of all barbecue enthusiasts beat faster: an exclusive Big Green Egg Minimax grill valued at 1,190 euros! The compact egg is the ideal grill for a small group of people – even directly on the table. There are also special prizes for the video in which the AJAX has travelled the furthest distance from Deizisau and for the most unusual video. 

The #ajaxtravelstheworld campaign runs until November 2023.
