Ever since the beginning of human history, sharp cutting tools, initially made of stone and bone, have been used for crushing food. The pioneers of today's kitchen knives are among the oldest universal tools and some of them used to be so grand that particularly decorative variants were occasionally used as a means of payment. Knives continued to diversify over thousands of years so that today, in addition to traditional table and bread knives, a whole range of kitchen knives are available. High-quality knives such as those made by Villeroy & Boch are not just indispensable for professional cooks and amateur chefs. Anyone who has ever cut meat or vegetables will appreciate a sharp and reliable cooking knife.
The Cooking Elements collection from Villeroy & Boch includes a variety of kitchen knives which are aesthetically appealing in any kitchen, while at the same time impressive in terms of function. Whether using the vegetable knife to cut crispy paprika into thin strips or using the carving knife to cut through beef tenderloin like butter – Villeroy & Boch has the matching kitchen knife at the ready, which lies pleasantly in the hand as it is perfectly balanced. In particular, the Santoku knife equipped with a ceramic or steel blade becomes a universal tool which effortlessly cuts meat, fish and vegetables into pieces when preparing meals. The shape of the blade which originates from Japan is charmingly rounded off with a plastic or wooden handle according to taste.
Whether steel or ceramic blades and natural wood or food-safe plastic handles: during the manufacture of its versatile kitchen knives, Villeroy & Boch relies on its high-quality raw materials and meticulous craftsmanship. Perfectly suitable for everyday use, the knives can also be effortlessly washed by hand. Ceramic knives in particular are very low-maintenance and even after years of use, still benefit from their immaculate sharpness. Conversely, steel knives must be sharpened again after a certain amount of time, however kitchen pros turn this task into a loving ritual. During traditional knife production, Villeroy & Boch rely on knife steel that gives your knives a high cutting capability and good rust resistance.
Mise en Place is an essential prerequisite for a smooth kitchen procedure. To keep the well-designed kitchen knives from Villeroy & Boch at your finger tips whenever you need them, it's well worth investing in a well-designed wood-look knife block from the Cooking Elements series. Not only does the block contain an entire set of kitchen knives, it also gives an attractive, and at the same time, rustic flair to your kitchen counter.
