It is the designer F.A. Porsche that has designed the Type 301 range - together with top chefs like Austrian celebrity chef Jõrg Wörther. The handle is made of 18/10 stainless steel, and the blade of high-quality Japanese 301 steel. All knives are carefully sharpened by the hand of a master and the blade is shaped in the traditional Japanese V-shape, that makes the knives unbelievably sharp, and holds the sharpness much longer. Once you hold the knives in your hand, you are overwhelmed by the incredible balance. Because of the sharpening method and the pure 301 steel, it is possible to make the knives very light, as it is the sharpness and not the weight that cuts.
The advantages of Type 301 are: All the knives have an ergonomic handle with a triangular shape that makes the knife fit perfectly into your hand. Because of this triangular shape, you have amazingly good control of the knife. There is a metal “pearl” that clearly demarcates the end of the handle, for safety and further control. A Traditional Japanese grinding method is used so the knives stay sharp longer - is one of the many reasons why the Type 301 knife range is used by so many famous chefs all over the world.
The Type 301 knives, like all quality knives, should never be placed in a dishwasher. Hand wash and dry after every use. Do not cut bones or deep frozen goods, cut only on a good surface (wood is the best). Resharpen using a whetstone or a ceramic sharpener. Do not use a metal sharpening steel!
F.A. Porsche has designed the Type 301 knives for those who want something special, and the knives have already won several design awards throughout the world. But the largest compliment for us is the many professional users all over the world.
