Wenger
$148.22
at Amazon

For more than 100 years Wenger has specialized in the field of professional butcher knives, kitchen knives, and Genuine Swiss Army... Knives. Wenger?s Delmont Forged knives have a fully drop- forged steel blade which creates a strong, wear-resistant blade with a long lasting sharp edge. In the manufacturing of forged blades, hot steel is pressed into a blade mold, then hammered into shape. Delmont Forged knives also feature one piece construction (blade, bolster and tang), which strengthens the entire knife, (tip to end), provides balance and eliminates stress points. With a Rockwell hardness tested between 54-56, depending on the specific knife and its function, the blades offer the optimal combination of hardness and flexibility without brittleness. The edge angle varies between 25 and 30 degrees, also depending on the specific knife and its function. The Delmont range is made in Europe: forged in Portugal and hand- finished in Switzerland. Handles are made of POM material for good wear, impact and abrasion resistance. The ergonomic design reduces hand fatigue and incorporates both Asian and European styling for a unique look and feel. The Chef's knife is used to chop, slice and mince. The side of the blade can be used for crushing garlic and spices. Best when used in a rocking motion for chopping. The 10-inch chef's knife is the kitchen workhorse and it is useful for almost all cutting, chopping, and mincing tasks. read more

Fiesta, America's favorite dinnerware, was introduced by the homer Laughlin china company with great fanfare at the Pittsburgh chi...na and glass show in January, 1936. Fiesta was the creation of Frederick Hurten Rhead, a second generation Stoke-on-Trent potter who had become homer Laughlin's design director in 1927. Fiesta was an immediate hit with the public and, by it's second year of production, more than one million pieces were produced. The original five colors were red, yellow, cobalt blue, green and ivory. Turquoise was added early in 1937. The shapes of fiesta were created in an art deco style with concentric circles highlighting the bright colors. The first six colors were produced through the 1930's and 40's until a change in fashion direction dictated a change to a softer palette of pastel colors at the beginning of the 1950's. Color trends moved back to brighter colors in the early 1960's and fiesta moved with the trend. At the end of 1972, fiesta was retired after 37 years of production. The retired dinnerware line soon became popular with collectors, especially those who had childhood memories of this brightly colored dinnerware. As years passed, the value of the original fiesta colors and pieces grew as more people became avid collectors. Over the next twenty years, new colors have been introduced and fiesta has become a trendsetter of color for the housewares industry. In the seventy years since fiesta was first produced, there have been a total of 38 colors in the line. Today, homer Laughlin introduces one new color each year and fiesta has become the leading dinnerware brand in casual tabletop, as well as a consistent leader in bridal registries across America. All the while, collectors have continued to add to the dinnerware to which they were first introduced by their mothers and grandmothers. Today, fiesta dinnerware is the most collected dinnerware in the history of the tabletop industry with well over one half billion pieces produced. read more

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.

Ask any chef about their most treasured kitchen tools and they don't even blink before they answer. The answer is always the same ...- knives. Most chefs have their own knife set and it might be wise not to get caught touching it. Chefs don't share knives even if they're usually reasonably nice people. Knives are strictly personal. Well, all right then, you'll have to get your own. This is where our Bistro Ceramic Knife line comes in. Ceramic Knives are a dream come true. Tomatoes part miraculously, boneless meat falls apart, and cutting up fruit and vegetables become a joy instead of a chore. In this regard you might say, good knives are key to a healthier lifestyle. Bodum Ceramic Knives are of exquisite quality as they're made of extremely hard and acid resistant ceramic material, which keeps the knives' sharpness a lot longer. They're very light, absolutely corrosion-proof and neutral in taste. Their ergonomically shaped handles in soft, anti-slip silicone makes for a safe and comfortable cutting experience. Available in black, orange, red, green, and white. read more

All of these compositions should give you years of use with limited maintenance. If you notice discoloring, or small oxidation marks on your stainless, it can usually be cleaned off with hot soapy water, and a sponge. If that doesn't do the trick, use a good quality stainless polish. Often, a rust spot on your flatware is not the flatware itself, but a dissimilar steel peeler or other item leaning against it in the dishwasher. </p> <p>There are many unique finishes available in our Ginkgo Collection. The most durable and stain resistant is our high gloss mirror finish. A smooth mirror finish leaves little for oxidizing agents to attack. Satin finish breaks the surface of the steel, so it is more prone to staining. However, satin finishes, like on our Norse pattern, can be revitalized simple by scrubbing (in the direction of the grain) with a delicate scrubbing sponge or very fine steel wool. This cleans off the surface, and adds more micro scratches. </p> <h5>Stainless Steel. What do the numbers mean?</h5> <div class="rightImage"><img alt="" src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/aplusdiy/B000ND1S82/ginkgo-logo.jpg" /><div class="imageCaption"></div></div><p>In metallurgy, stainless steel is defined as a steel alloy with a minimum of 11.5% chromium content by mass. Stainless steel does not stain, corrode or rust as easily as ordinary steel (it "stains less"), but it is not stain-proof. As an example, mayonnaise left on a knife blade in the sink seems to stain the blade a darker color. There are different grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit the environment to which the material will be subjected in its lifetime. Common uses of stainless steel are cutlery and watch straps. Stainless steel differs from carbon steel by amount of chromium present. Carbon steel rusts when exposed to air and moisture. This iron oxide film is active and accelerates corrosion by forming more iron oxide. Stainless steels have sufficient amount of chromium present so that a passive film of chromium oxide forms which prevents further corrosion. Stainless steel's resistance to corrosion and staining, low maintenance, and affordability make it an ideal base material for a host of commercial applications. There are over 150 grades of stainless steel, of which fifteen are most common. There are different types of stainless steels: when nickel is added, for instance, the austenite structure of iron is stabilized. This crystal structure makes such steels non-magnetic and less brittle at low temperatures. For greater hardness and strength, carbon is added. When subjected to adequate heat treatment, these steels are used as razor blades, cutlery, flatware, etc. A typical composition of 18% chromium and 8% nickel, commonly known as 18/8 stainless, is often used in flatware. 18/8 has approximately 18% chromium, and from 8-10 percent nickel. The nomenclature 18/8, and 18/10 are sometimes both used to represent the same type steel. 18/0 has 18 percent chromium, and no nickel. This common steel is often used in flatware sets as it combines the stain resistant elements of 18/8 at a lower cost. In recent years the price of nickel has increased by tenfold. </p> </div> read more
