The interplay of blade material, cutting edge shape and handle design of the PURE METAL AJAX steak and table knife results in an exceptional cutting experience and a knife with intuitive handling. With the PURE METAL AJAX, we now also offer a knife masterpiece that serves equally as tableware.
The shape of the blade takes 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 was already the leading style of 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 our PURE METAL AJAX steak and table knife embodies our long tradition in the construction and production of high quality tools and the tough conditions 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.
Just one cut
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 its cooking level.. The PURE METAL 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.
For lasting enjoyment
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.
Tried-and-tested chef’s knife steel quality
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. Because we use high-grade steel, our knives are dishwasher-safe. This method of cleaning is far more aggressive than hand washing, however. We therefore advise washing by hand whenever possible.
