Knife Collection FAQs

What Is The Most Popular Type of Knife Collection? 

As its name suggests, the chef’s knife is one of the most commonly used and versatile tools utilised in the kitchen. They are typically between 8-10 inches and can be used for a wide range of tasks, such as dicing vegetables or butchering poultry. 

How To Recognise a Good Knife? 

Before choosing a new knife, it is important to understand the hallmarks of quality. These include:

  • Material -  X50CrMoV15 or 1.4116 Steel has been the hallmark of good European knives for over 50 years. This knife steel guarantees absolute sharpness and satisfies the highest hygienic requirements. 

  • Manufacturing - A forged knife consists of a single piece of steel. This can be identified by the angle, the thicker part between the blade and the handle. It is only this type of production that promises maximum stability and perfect balance. 

  • Sharpness - Whilst every knife is expected to be sharp right from the start, only a good knife remains sharp. 

  • Handle - Cutting is easier when a knife lies firmly in the hand. Ergonomically shaped handles made of high-quality plastic prevents dangerous slipping and hand fatigue.

What Exactly Is X50CrMoV15 Steel?

Also known as 1.4116, X50CrMov15 is a steel type produced by German manufacturer, ThyssenKrupp. It is mostly recognised for its ability to withstand corrosion and wear however, it is also notable for being simple to sharpen and for its moderate edge retention. 

What Are The Benefits of X50CrMoV15 Steel?

The perfect kitchen knife material should have a balance of the desired qualities. X50CrMoV15 steel is an ideal choice due to its high corrosion resistance, ease of sharpening and hardness. Here is everything you need to know:

Corrosion Resistance - The 1.4116 steel has a chromium content of 15%, making it corrosion resistant. As a result, the steel is extremely hygienic when it comes to food safety and is perfect for professional settings. 

Edge Sharpness - The moderate amounts of carbon in X50CrMoV15 make it a relatively easy steel to sharpen. 

Hardness - X50CrMoV15 steel has a Rockwell hardness of 54-57 HRC, making it a low hardness steel. This near-perfect middle ground makes the steel both tough and durable, not so soft or brittle that it cannot withstand tough use and not so hard that it’s difficult to sharpen. 

Why Is The Weight of a Knife Important? 

When it comes to knives, weight is very important. If you are looking for something to cut hard ingredients like potatoes, a heavier-weight knife is a good option. However, if you are looking for a tool to cut delicate ingredients like tomatoes and soft fruits, a lightweight knife would be a better option.
