De Buyer has carefully analysed French and Japanese knife design. The findings were clear: Japanese knives have a perfect cutting edge while French knives are outstandingly solid. De Buyer's knives differ obviously from any other knives by combining these two key elements and know-how.
de Buyer has created the FIBRE KARBON 1 collection to satisfy the most demanding Chefs. The high tech handle, compression-moulded in France with multiple layers of carbon fiber, is light and extremely strong, making it perfectly balanced and pleasant to hold. The one-piece forged structure and blade is made of the very strong German X50CrMoV15 stainless steel with the traditional very sharp edge of Japanese cutlery arts.
The perfect blend of both cutlery and culinary worlds.
The FK2 knives have the ultimate blend of toughness, sharpness, functionality and value for real working Chefs and serious gourmet cooks, with a wide range of innovative shapes.
The blade is also made of the robust German X59CrNoV15 stainless steel with a fine Japanese geometry for improved sharpness of the edge.The ergonomic handle is made of carbon fiber composite with non-slip texture grip. It features a calibrating system: find your ideal balance with the innovative adjustable counterweight.
