  • What does “stainless” mean?

    The term or the declaration "stainless" means the object in question is made of high alloyed steel. Products manufactured using high alloyed steel have a high resistance to corrosion.

    The terms "stainless" or "inox" is thus only partly true. If stainless steel products are not cleaned over a long period of time, aggressive substances (fruit acids, salt water etc.) are able to act on (corrode) the material.

  • How do I resharpen a Victorinox Kitchen Knife?

    The kind of edge applied to a blade, determines the sharpness and durability of it. When using a sharpening steel, the angle should be between 30-40°.

    When resharpening with a grinding wheel, plenty of water must be used to prevent overheating or even burning of the blade. Even when using a soft polishing wheel without water, overheating must also be avoided, because the structure is changed and the resistance to corrosion, hardness and edge retention is reduced.
