Forged Solicut knives of the series FIRST CLASS, FIRST CLASS LIMITED, FIRST CLASS EDITION, TRADITION, PREMIUM and GOYA COLOUR are fully forged from one pieces of superb quality X50CrMoV15 stainless steel. Out of more than 40 production steps, a major part must be done by hand in order to achieve such an outstanding precision…
Whether during the traditional hot drop-forging, the 3-step-hardening process for durability, flexibility and corrosion resistance, the handle finishing or particularly the honing of the cutting edges by hand, it depends on exact adherence to our specifications and the particular sure instinct of our 75 employees. With their unique know-how, they guarantee for their own production manufacturing base in Solingen / Germany.
For our high-quality knives, we exclusively use best materials for their respective purpose, like POM (plastic for knife handles), and up to 1.000 years old olive wood acquired from limited de- and afforestation under governmental control. The material is treated with food-suitable and biological products.
Fully forged knives with plastic handles are dishwasher suitable but not dishwasher safe. We therefore recommend to clean and dry by hand in order to avoid spots on the blade and exceptional damage on the cutting edge caused by unsafe storage or aggressive detergent in the dishwasher. Clean your knife regularly after use under hot water and dry it carefully. Thus you will always have a usable knife!
Knifes with a wood-handle are not dishwasher-proof. To enjoy your knife for a lifetime you should clean and dry your knife only by hand. After extensive use treat the handles with salad oil.
Do not use your knife for cutting things other than it was design for. i.e. do not chop bones or cut frozen food with a carving knife and don’t ever use a knife as a screwdriver or a can opener.
After regular use, your knife can be easily resharpened on sharpening steel. This will ensure easy cutting and constant cutting result.
To guaranty highest cutting-performance your knife should be extremely sharp. That means care by storing and working with the knife. Do not store your knife in a drawer unless the knife is covered with protective guards or sleeves and keep it away from children. We recommend storage in a solicut wooden block or on a solicut magnetic holder for wall mounting.
