The tradition of knife making in Solsona dates back to the 16th century. Over time the area's numerous workshops faded away and Pallarès remained, steadfast in its craftmanship and innovative in its modernization of many age old techniques.
Every Chef's kitchen should boast the best tools of the trade and we believe the kitchen knives from Pallarès to be some of the best in the world. This blade is made of Carbon Steel - the muse of many a chef. Masters of the kitchen use high carbon blades because they can get sharper and hold their edge better than knives made from stainless steel.
Care: After use clean & dry the knife, and store safely. Carbon Steel requires regular maintenance. Stains and rust are naturally occurring when using carbon steel knives. To force a patina onto the blade to protect it from rust. “You can do it with almost anything with acid in it: instant coffee, vinegar, potatoes — lots of things. Just rub it on the blade and polish them in." To prevent rust over time, we recommend washing your knife shortly after use and oiling the blade with mineral oil.
We recommend having this knife professionally sharpened every 6 months for best results.
