FEATURES:

  • Forged stainless steel.
  • Ergonomically designed handle.
  • Curved cutting edge.
  • German stainless steel called DIN 1.4116.
  • Hollow ground "grantons" on the Santuko knife.


BENEFITS:

  • A fully forged knife, such as iCOOK™ Knifeware, is one where the blade, bolster and tang are formed from one piece of metal. The forged construction is considered to be very strong, durable and long lasting.
  • Specifically designed curvature on the underside that adds control and stability especially when cutting larger, harder foods.
  • The cutting edge is curved to match the natural action of the wrist while cutting. This curvature also helps prevent the need to involve the elbow and shoulder when cutting. When cutting with the wrist alone, you maintain better control over the blade edge.
  • This steel is specially formulated for forged knives.
  • Allow the foods you are cutting to release more easily from the side of the blade. It is ideal for cutting foods that stick to the blade - such as potatoes. It is also great for cutting meats, fish and vegetables.

How are the iCOOK™ Knives constructed?

    • There are two main parts to an iCOOK™ knife:
    • - A single piece, fully-forged blade, bolster, and tang

      - The riveted handle.

  • The blade is made from a German stainless steel called DIN 1.4116. This steel is specially formulated for forged knives.
  • The handles are made from a plastic called polyoxymethylene. It is a handle material that is commonly used in high-end knives.


Why is it important to sharpen my knives?
For three reasons:

  • Safety. Forcing a cut with a dull knife is one of the easiest ways to injure yourself. Properly sharpened and maintained knives actually help prevent accidents.
  • Good cutting action. You will get straighter, cleaner cuts with a sharp, well-maintained knife than you will with a dull knife.
  • Comfort. Using a high level of force over an extended period of time can cause discomfort to your hand. Keeping your knives sharp makes it easier to cut, thereby reducing the required force and time per use.


How do I sharpen my knives?

  • The iCOOK™ Knifeware & Shears Sharpener, sold separately, may be used to hone the Chef's Knife, Santoku, Petty Knife, and Paring Knife, as well as the Shears. The Slicer requires professional sharpening due to its serrated edge.
