ViCera Cutlery

Designed for precision, our 3-3/4-inch/ 10cm Paring Knife peels and cores fruits and vegetables easily ? a task made easier with i...ts light weight. ViCeraTM ceramic knives are made of an advanced, high-tech ceramic called zirconium oxide (also known as zirconia). Zirconium oxide is extremely hard and wear resistant, rating 8.5 on the Mohs scale ? surpassing stainless steel (5-6 Mohs) and approaching the hardness of diamond (10 Mohs). The Mohs scale, developed by mineralogist Friedrich Mohs, is the universally accepted standard for measuring the hardness of minerals. The primary difference between ViCeraTM and other ceramic knife manufacturers is the size of the zirconium oxide particles in the finished blade. Using advanced technology, the zirconium oxide particles in ViCeraTM blades are broken down to one fifth of their original size. They are then pressed using 500 tons of pressure (compared to the 200 tons used by other ceramic producers). The end result is a stronger, denser blade with substantially longer edge retention. Because ViCeraTM knives are forged to such exacting standards, there is no need to polish the entire blade before final presentation, which other manufacturers must do. When applied to the entire blade, polishing can create tiny, almost invisible cracks, which can compromise quality and make the knife more susceptible to breakage. ViCeraTM blades are only polished on the cutting edge revealing a brilliant, dense, white blade that naturally resists staining. When you pick up a ViCeraTM ceramic knife, you are holding a perfect balance of new technology and old-world craftsmanship. A brilliant, white blade that is as light as a feather and tougher than nails. read more

This classic manual sharpener is designed by Taylor's Eye Witness, which was established in 1883. This full metal manual sharpene...r is manufactured in Sheffield England and is the finest pull through sharpener on the market. This unique design is on permanent display at the New York Museum of Modern Art. At the heart of the machines are two butcher steels; the same hardness, temper and cut as a professional steel. The steels are preset at the optimum angle and are spring loaded so as not to damage the knife.The steels revolve under tension and do not wear away the blade. To use, wipe the blade clean, draw the knife between the steel rods 4 or 5 times, as if slicing, and using enough pressure to rotate the steels. Use the Chantry frequently, preferably before each time a knife is used. The black mini Chantry sharpener works the same as the regular Chantry but is small enough to store in a drawer. The Chantry manual sharpener is not recommended for fine edge knives or Japanese knives. read more

<b>From the Manufacturer</b><p> <table align=left width=80 cellpadding=5> <tr><td align=center><img src="http://images.amazon.com/...images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/Victorinox_Logo.jpg" border=0 align=top width=80 height=44></td></tr><table align=right width=468 cellpadding=10></table> <b>What is a ceramic blade?</b><br> For over 100 years, Victorinox Commercial Cutlery has become the tool of choice for professionals, and the brand continues to innovate with the introduction of the new ceramic blade collection featuring proprietary Fibrox® handles. Ceramic blades have recently gained popularity due to their outstanding edge retention and resistance to corrosion and acids. <p> Our ceramic blades are manufactured from high-purity zirconium oxide powder, compressed at very high pressures and sintered in furnaces at temperatures over 2700° F. The result is an extremely hard blade that is comparable to the hardness of a diamond. Each knife is then equipped with our classic Victorinox Fibrox handle with signature textured grip, helping reduce the chance of slippage. And with the handle designed to minimize wrist tension while still providing legendary cuts, it?s no wonder that Victorinox Commercial Cutlery remains the true choice of professionals. Ceramic blades are as useable as metal blades. Ceramic knives have several distinguishing features. <p> <ul><li>Precision Sharpness: We compress materials at very high pressures resulting in a hard blade which is comparable to diamonds. This hardness allows us to apply an edge with microscopic precision. The edge will maintain its razor sharpness and is resistant to wearing. <li>No Odors: Ceramic material is not very porous; it keeps the blade from transferring odors from one food item to another. You can cut something spicy, give it a quick rinse and then cut something else. The spiciness won?t transfer to the next food item. <li>Sanitary: Ceramic blades are very dense, with very little pores. Just like your face, the less pores there are, the less dirt and grime can get into the pores. A quick rinse in warm water will get your ceramic knife a lot cleaner than a thorough scrubbing on a metal knife. <li>Light Weight: Ceramic material is very light weight; half the weight of steel. The lighter weight means there will be less strain on your arms and shoulders. You can tackle any food preparation task with ease and precision, just like a pro. <li>No Rust: Because metal is not used in ceramic knives, they will never rust. This makes them the perfect knives for humid climates where risks of rust are high. <br> <br> <table align=left width=400 cellpadding=10> <br> <tr><td><img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/vic-ceramic-chefs.gif" border=0 align=top width=280 height=119><br><br><small><i><b>Chef?s Knife</b></i></small></td></tr> <tr><td><img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/vic-ceramic-santoku.gif" border=0 align=top width=280 height=119><br><br><small><i><b>Santoku Knife</b></i></small></td></tr> <tr><td><img src="http://images.amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/vic-ceramic-utility.gif" border=0 align=top width=280 height=119><br><br><small><i><b>Utility Knife</b></i></small></td></tr> <tr><td><img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/victorinox-ceramic-sharpene.gif" border=0 align=top width=280 height=119><br><br><small><i><b>Knife Sharpener</b></i></small></td></tr> </table> <table align=right width=280 cellpadding=10> <b>6-Inch Chef's</b>: The most important tool and essential to every cook, a chef?s knife is most often used in a rocking method to mince, dice, and chop vegetables and herbs. This one is known as the chef?s best friend. <p> <b>7-Inch Santoku</b>: This knife combines the features of a cleaver with a chef's knife. The curved blade helps the rocking motion used for chopping, and the wide blade works well for scooping sliced food off a cutting board and for crushing garlic. The santoku can also be used to slice meat and has a narrow spine for making thin cuts. <p> <b>Utility</b>: An all-purpose knife often referred to as a sandwich knife, the utility knife peels and slices fruits and vegetables, and even carves small meats. <p> <b>Ceramic Sharpener</b>: The Victorinox Diamond knife sharpener with stand is specifically engineered for the care of Victorinox ceramic cutlery. The sharpener panel has diamond particles and the stand on which the knife should be placed sets the blade at the correct angle for sharpening. </table> <p> <b>The benefits of Fibrox handles</b> <br> Our Fibrox handles are created with the unique hygienic needs of the home chef. They are designed to minimize wrist tension while providing a secure grip. They are also sanitary and easy to clean. They feature a lifetime warranty against manufacturer?s defects. <p> <b>How should I care for my ceramic cutlery?</b> <br> After use, clean ceramic knives with a mild detergent. Dishwashing is not recommended, unless the knife can be guaranteed not to come into contact with any other product. Never clean with a wire brush or hold in an open flame. We recommend the use of a special diamond sharpener like our Victorinox Ceramic Diamond Sharpener. Store your ceramic knives in the supplied protector. <p> <b>Who is Victorinox?</b><br> Although Victorinox is known the world over as the creator of the Original Swiss Army Knife, the company started out in 1884 as a cutlery workshop. By the time company creator Karl Elsener delivered his first pocket knife to the Swiss Army, his cutlery business was already booming. Over the next century, Victorinox cutlery became a top-rated choice among professionals worldwide, with over 300 blades to offer. <p> Victorinox knives have regularly appeared as highly ranked and recommended kitchen tools in <i>Cook?s Illustrated</i>, <i>Men?s Health</i>, <i>The Cincinnati Enquirer</i>, <i>New York Magazine</i>, and <i>Natural Health</i>, just to name a few. In 2009, the company announced a partnership with professional chef, Daniel Humm, of Eleven Madison Park in New York City. In addition, building on the success of its cutlery business, Victorinox has brought all the same quality and expertise to a wider range of products and accessories, including other kitchen tools, pocket tools, watches, luggage, and clothing. read more

By honing and sharpening the knives yourself you can maintain this feeling for a lifetime of use (see "Honing and Sharpening" section below for detailed guidelines on how to do so).</p> <div class="leftImage" style="width:400px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0001WN9SC-evolution.jpg" width="400" height="316" alt="Evolution" /></div> <h5>The evolution of a precision forged knife</h5> <p>Over 40 different manufacturing steps are needed to produce a forged Wusthof knife from one solid piece of steel.</p> <p>Here you will find a detailed explanation of some of the most important production steps.</p> <p><b>1.</b> Sheet bar of high-carbon no-stain steel <br><b>2.</b> Precision forged piece <br><b>3.</b> Tempered to 58-degree Rockwell <br><b>4.</b> Polished <br><b>5.</b> Scales of handles and rivets <br><b>6.</b> The Wusthof Cook's knife </p> </div> <div class="fourth-col last"> <h4>Types of Blades</h4> <h5>The Right Blade for Every Purpose</h5> <p>The edge is the business end of a knife. It is skillfully honed by hand and incredibly sharp. For different cutting tasks different blade shapes and edges are recommended.</p> <h5>The Differences:</h5> <p><u>Straight-edge blade:</u> The straight edge allows a smooth and clean cut. When carving no fibres are torn out of the meat. This edge can be used for firm and soft food like meat, vegetables and fruit.</p> <p><u>Serrated-edge blade:</u> The wavy or serrated edge allows an easy cut through crusty food like a traditional roast and crispy bread.</p> <p><u>Hollow-edge blade:</u> When cutting an air pocket is created between the hollow edge and the slice. This prevents the food from sticking to the blade and allows for finer slices.</p> <h4>Cleaning & Storage</h4> <h5>Proper care for long-lasting cooking enjoyment</h5> <p>If you value your tools, we recommend washing your knives with warm, soapy water after each use. Rinse carefully and dry with a towel.</p> <div class="break"></div> <div class="leftImage" style="width:180px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0001WN9SC-wash.jpg" width="180" height="150" alt="Wash" /></div> <div class="break"></div> <p>For proper storage we recommend the following options:</p> <ul> <li><b>Knife blocks</b> in a variety of shapes, colors and configurations. The handy knife block provides protection for your blades as well as a visual compliment to your kitchen decor. <li><b>Magnet Bars</b> in wood, synthetic material or aluminum. Two extra strong magnet segments provide a safe, easily visible and space-saving storage option. <li><b>Cook's cases</b> in <b>rolls</b> and <b>briefcase</b> styles. This is the ideal method for professionals to store and transport their tools safely. </ul> <h4>About Wusthof</h4> <p>Since 1814 Wusthof has set the standard for designing and manufacturing precision-forged knives.</p> <p>Today the family business is in its seventh generation of ownership, under the management of Harald Wusthof.</p> <p>Wusthof knives are manufactured by a skilled team of 300 dedicated workers in two state-of-the-art facilities in Solingen, Germany.</p> <p>Wusthof applies sustainable practices to their production facilities: Solar panels on the roof provide electricity to their manufacturing facility, they clean and reuse water to reduce water usage, and they reuse scrap materials rather than creating waste.</p> <p>In addition to knives, Wusthof offers an assortment of cutting boards, knife blocks, kitchen tools, and scissors bearing the famous Trident logo--a symbol of form, function, and uncompromising quality.</p> </div></div> read more

Avoid prolonged contact with leftover food. <li>Do not use bleach, soda or detergents containing chlorine or chlorides ions because they rust the steel and may cause it to lose its shine. <li>Avoid rubbing your knives with abrasive products, hard cloths, and metallic or synthetic cleaners. <li>If you use a dishwasher, place your knives in with the blades facing up and in separate containers from the rest of your cutlery to avoid scratching. <li>Avoid leaving your knives submerged in water for long periods of time, especially in hard or salty water that can affect metals. <li>Dry immediately with a soft cloth. <li>Leaving your knives to dry in the dishwasher is not recommended. </ul> <h4>About Arcos</h4> <p>Arcos is a leading Spanish knife manufacturer and one of the oldest knife and cutlery manufacturers in the world. In 1745, Don Juan de Arcos started hand-crafting the first knives and scissors marked with the Arcos brand, and many of these pieces are displayed in the National Museum of Archeology of Madrid. Gregorio Arcos Aroca turned the small hand-crafted workshop into a mass-production factory for professional knives in 1875. And a century later, Gregorio Arcos Villanueva started the international expansion of the company. Today, Arcos is still a family owned business and proud of its remarkable heritage.</p> <p>To learn more about the history of Arcos, see this larger timeline image.</p> </div> read more
