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. Friedr. Dick was founded in Esslingen in 1778 and after more than 239 years is still a family-owned enterprise. Maximum quality and optimum handling, designed according to the ergonomic requirements for professionals, make Dick products the leading brand for professional chefs worldwide.
Of course with the knives of the F Dick Premier Plus series the composition of the steel and the special hardening technique are the most obviously important factors. The steel elements are made from the alloy X 45 Cr Mo V15, in which each component has a special part to play: chromium strengthens the steel against wear and tear, molybdenum gives it resistance to corrosion and carbon its absolute hardness. This first class substance is then forged into a perfectly balanced and ergonomically shaped knife.
Particularly worthy of note, however, is the sophisticated design of the handle. A special manufacturing technique results in the blade and the handle being so tightly linked that not even the finest crack or gap is left. Unlike traditional knives with a handle housing, it is impossible for food residue or liquids to penetrate. As is standard with the F.Dick company, each finished knife of the F.Dick Premier Plus series is sharpened and honed by hand. Cutting becomes an experience – this is something you can expect from F. Dick.
