Type 301 knives, designed by F.A. Porsche with top chef Jõrg
Wörther, are beloved among top gourmet chefs around the world. The
blade is made from special high-class pure Japanese 301 Molybdenum/Vanadium
stainless steel and hardened to Rockwell C56-58*, so they hold a sharper
edge and resist rust, stains and corrosion.
The beautifully designed ergonomic handle is constructed of 18/10 stainless
steel, which features a "metal pearl" that demarcates the end
of the handle and also acts as a thumb rest for better control. The transition
from blade to handle is seamless which make it very easy to clean and
The blade of each knife is carefully sharpened by the hand of a master
so you'll enjoy it's super sharp cutting action the moment you try it.
The ergonomic design provides maximum comfort and allows for superb weight
Type 301 knives should only be sharpened with a whetstone, such
as the Type 301 whetstone or a ceramic sharpener. Sharpening with a whetstone
is so simple that even beginners can quickly master the technique required.
Do not use metal sharpening steel as they will harm the
blade. Only use wooden or plastic cutting boards, never marble or glass
when cutting with a Type 301. Always wash by hand.
