All knives are graded for hardness. The harder the steel in the blade, the longer the knife stays sharp for and the more exquisite the cutting edge feels.
How quickly knives blunt depend on what you’re chopping through and what you are chopping onto. You can easily blunt your knife if you are chopping onto marble or glass.
We have a diamond tipped engraving machine which can make your knife a true one-off. All this for only £10 per blade (we can engrave any knife) plus shipping.
