In 1905 the Swabian knife manufacturer Friedr. Dick developed a series of knives with aesthetic metal rings around the handle. These replaced the previously common rivets which were used to mount the handle onto the steel of the knife.
The special design of 1905 and the therefore necessary special techniques have been further developed by Friedr. Dick. Both then and now the knife series 1905 is captivating thanks to its exceptional appearance. The symmetrical steel rings are inseparably connected to the moulded handle, using a unique technology. The blade is well sharpened and the knife enjoys perfect equilibrium, with tapering at the tip. It goes without saying that the blade is made of best quality German XCrMoVMn stainless steel, preferred by reputable chefs. A finely dispersed martensitic structure is produced (with a hardness of over 60 HRc) thanks to a hi-tech tempering process at temperatures of approx. 1950 degrees F and cryogenic treatment at temperatures as low as -310 degrees F. Targeted tempering in several stages at approx 392 degrees F produces a unique, dynamic and sharp cutting edge. During this process, the hardness is carefully reduced to 55HRc. This hardness is required as it guarantees sharpness and retention of sharpness and also facilitates resharpening. Combining these two requirements in a balanced manner is an art. Highly experienced craftsmen add on the end cutting edge by hand.
Friedr. Dick was founded in Esslingen, Germany in 1778 and after more than 225 years is still a family-owned enterprise.
