The slim blade of the knife gives the possibility of cutting meat from the bone or if raw or cooked meat needs to be cut into thin strips. It is important to keep the knife sharp; so remember to use a sharpening steel rod every time you use the small chef’s knife.
Endeavour [en-de-var] means “to strive”. The professional chef’s knives in the Endeavour range are made of Damascus steel. The middle of the blade’s cutting edge is enveloped by 33 layers of beautifully forged steel on each side. This method of manufacturing gives the Endeavour knives their characteristic appearance and makes them extremely sharp and durable. The Damascus forging technique was widespread during the Samurai days of glory when the sword makers from Seki achieved a legendary reputation for their Damascus swords. Technically, the Japanese masters leaned on a forging tradition that is alleged to come from Damascus. Hence, the name Damascus steel.
* The hardness of steel is measured in the Rockwell-scale. It is measured by pressing a standardized diamond cone into the steel, to a certain depth. The acquired force used is used to calculate the value on the Rockwell-scale. The harder the steel — the higher the score on the scale.
Most knives register a hardness of 51-53 HRC.
