The blade is made of the highest quality steel for an ultra-precise cut

The extremely strong and hard blade of the Bacher chef's knife owes its spectacular sharpness the meticulously crafted blade, the process of multiple layering (alternating soft and harder layers) and the forging steel. The blade has 67 overlapping layers of high-carbon stainless steel. The core of the knife is made of Japanese, super-hard AUS-10V steel, and the alternating layers of 58 HRC and 60 HRC hardness, create a genuine Damascus steel blade with an original pattern that looks different on each knife, making it unique and one-of-a-kind.

The suitably profiled and highly durable blade has been hand ground to 15˚ on each side to maintain the perfect balance between sharpness and durability. This guarantees long blade life, safe and precise cutting, resistance to abrasion and corrosion, and easy sharpening. As a result, the tool retains excellent cutting properties for a long time.

Ergonomic handle for a firm grip and comfortable use

The carefully designed knife handle is made from G10 epoxy glass laminate. This material is resistant to water, high temperatures, as well as mechanical damage, cracks and scratches. The ergonomic shape ensures a comfortable grip and maximum comfort and safety when working.

The hand-polished back and engraved Bacher logo on the blade enhance the aesthetic value of the knife and give it a unique character.

How to look after a knife?

In order to keep your knife in good condition for a long time, it is important to take good care of it. Regularly use the supplied knife wax, which has a special food-safe formula to

  • Protects the blade and wooden and synthetic handle linings,
  • Hides minor scratches,
  • Prevents blade corrosion,
  • Protects against moisture and mould,
  • increases glide for easier cutting,
  • Gives a shine to the blade and handle,
  • 100% natural, safe for food contact.

To apply the wax, use the soft, 100% natural chamois leather supplied, which cleans and polishes the knives perfectly, leaving no marks or scratches.

How to wash a knife?

If you want your knife to last for a long time, do not put it in the dishwasher. Detergents and high temperatures cause corrosion and change the structure and physical and mechanical properties of the knife.

We recommend that you wash the knife gently in warm water using a washing-up liquid and the soft side of a sponge. Then wipe it dry with our chamois cloth, which is perfect for this purpose.
