Blades made of Damascus steel - robust and durable
Whether chef's knife, Santoku knife, preparation knife or
steak knife - with a blade made of Damascus steel, all variants become
particularly durable and exclusive knives. A Damascus knife can be recognized
by its distinctive blade pattern, which is created in the manufacturing process
by folding the Damascus steel several times. The blade is usually rather wide,
flexible and very stable for easy handling. The shape of the blade varies
depending on the knife variant. Due to the extreme stability and noble
appearance, damask knives are not only popular with demanding hobby kitchens,
but are also used in professional kitchens. Thanks to the ergonomic handles,
the damask knives lie well in the hand.
