A series of refined German kitchen knives that blend state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques and high-end design.
When creative contemporary design and innovative crafting methods come together, stunning things can happen. The Mono SK59 knives are a perfect example. Designed by Gido Wahrmann for the renowned German brand, the collection blends high-end design and high-performance steel in eye-catching products that are as stylish as they are efficient. These German kitchen knives feature angular handles with a futuristic look. Made from polyamide-reinforced fiberglass, the handles are carefully molded on the steel blade. Both comfortable to use and durable, they perfectly complement the strength of the steel blades.
Mono used Sandvik 12C27™ steel for the series, as this high-performance steel provides the ideal combination of sharpness, durability, flexibility, and corrosion-resistance. Developed over the course of 45 years, this type of steel has a lasting cutting power and rarely requires re-sharpening. The manufacturing process also makes the most of the material. After cutting the blade, skilled workers strengthen the steel to 59 Rockwell, grind the back and sides of the blade, and then use a pließten (plowing) technique to smooth the surface before sharpening the German kitchen knives to perfection. The Mono SK59 Knife Series includes a Chef’s Knife, Ham Knife, and a Utility Knife. All of them offer superior performance for different task while ensuring that they always stand out in any kitchen. Handmade in Germany, the knives will be available from April 2020 on the brand’s website and at specialist stores. Photographs© Mono.
