by De Buyer
The FK2 professional knives by French brand de Buyer are ideal for chefs looking for durable and comfortable knives to work in a busy kitchen environment.
The FK2 range of professional knives were designed as a combination of thick German blades and light Japanese blades, a guarantee of strength and sharpness. The FK2 knives are hard for edge retention and tough for edge durability.
The blade is made of a German stainless steel alloy (X50CrMoV15) hardened and tempered to HRC56 (Rockwell scale for hardness).
The handle, made of carbon fibre composite, means it is robust and durable. Its textured surface and ergonomic shape give the handle anti-slip and comfort features.
The FK2 knife range benefits from a solid one-piece bolster and a thick tang for long-term durability.
It has a finer edge than traditional blades for sharper slicing.
Finding your ideal balance is possible as chefs can adjust the blade/handle balance by unscrewing the end of the handle and removing counterweight spacers.
The range includes a chef’s knife (2 sizes), Santoku knife, Asian Chef knife (2 sizes), paring knife, utility knife, carving knife, salmon and ham knife, filet knife (2 sizes), boning knife, carving knife (2 sizes) and bread knife.
