the knife will have a long lasting cutting edge. The ice hardening ensures that we achieve a high level HRC
rating of HRC:57±2. HRC 57 is synonymous with high end Kitchen Knives. The Rockwell Hardness Scale was
developed to test the Hardness of Metals and is very common to determine high end blades in Kitchen Knives.

Tips on Realigning and Sharpening your Knives
Swiss Diamond recommends you realign the knife blade weekly for optimal performance. Hold the honing steel in your non-dominant hand with your fingers behind the butt of the steel. Place the knife blade against the tip of the honing steel at an angle of approximately 20 degrees away from you. Start with the base of the knife and move the knife to the tip as you pull the knife down. Repeat on the front and the back of the steel to sharpen both sides of the blade. If you find your blade has dulled, we highly recommend bringing the knives to a professional knife sharpener.
