Kitchen Knives & Cutting
Due Cigni 1896 Walnut kitchen knives: traditional design
The kitchen knives from the 1896 collection from Due Cigni were designed by Oreste Frati. In addition to being the owner of Fox Knives, Oreste is a gifted designer. For the design of these knives he looked at the design of classic European chef's knives. He used this design and made it his own. You can tell when you look at the flowing lines of the walnut wood handle. The thin blade ensures that the knives weigh next to nothing and are easy to use. The knives are produced in Italy.
Due Cigni 1896 handle
The handle is made from dark walnut wood. It gives the knife its classic and stylish look and feel. The handle is rounded and therefore feels amazing in hand. The handle was secured to the full-tang blade with three stunning rivets. To maintain the stunning colour of the walnut wood, and to not affect the sharpness of the blade, we recommend cleaning this knife by hand. Dry it after cleaning it to prevent discolourations or tears and to make sure the wood doesn't bend.
Due Cigni 1896 blade
The blade is made from X50Cr15MOV stainless steel and has a smooth, razor-sharp edge. This type of steel is highly resistant to stains and rust. In addition, you can also easily sharpen it yourself, if, after some time, it has lost some of its sharpness.
