  • Quality - Made in Germany / Solingen.

 

The Evolution of Balance - The newly designed bolster and its innovative geometry ensure that the weight every one of the EPICURE models is evenly distributed around the center of the knife. The knife moves neutrally around this focal point for agile and effortless work. 

Innovative by Nature - A special feature of the EPICURE series is the material used for the grip, made of natural wood fibers and resin.  It offers the pleasing feel of wood and is as sturdy and hygienic as synthetic alternatives.  As a result, it is firmly rooted in the EPICURE tradition.  It unites the best of the different worlds and at the same time sends a strong environmental signal with its emission-free production.

Steel, Taken a Step Further - The backbone of the EPICURE knife is the single unit consisting of blade, bolster and shank - made of one piece of high-alloy X50CrMoV15.  The excellent qualities of the steel make a significant contribution to the sharpness and long service life which then receive a new dimension from the forging and subsequent hardening process.  Proudly 58°HRC.  EPICURE knives feature a hardness that guaranteed both the highest degree of initial sharpness and long cutting ability as well as a flexibility and easy resharpening. 

Made to Measure Sharpness - We have developed the PTec sharpening process to give every blade the greatest possible initial sharpness.  As a result, the blades are measured piece by piece with a laser before grinding.   This step ensures that even the slightest tolerances in the thickness of the blank are taken into consideration for sharpening.  Every single blade is given the ideal sharpening angle of 15° and can therefore meet the exacting WUSTHOF standard.

Considered to the Smallest Detail - Every blade is designed without the exception to have a wider shape, exerting more weight on the item being cut and thereby working with much greater efficiency.  At the same time, it guarantees you increased safety and noticeably improved ease of use; the wider contact surface offers not only better control when guiding the knife, but also helps transport food to the pot quickly and cleanly.  This is what makes EPICURE - great ideas, realized in perfect form.

Balance Meets Sustainability Meets Precision  - EPICURE is the cooking tool for all challenges to be mastered in the kitchen.  It combines the virtues of two great philosophies: the efficiency and lightness of Japanese knives, paired with German quality and safety.  In so doing, EPICURE embodies a new type of knife - one that works with all cooking styles and sets the standard in function and performance. 


The Essentials.  In Perfection.  - The development of EPICURE consistently follows our aspiration to leave out what is redundant and optimize what is necessary.  The grip - designed to be a bit wider in the front third and tapered towards the back - is distinguished by the profile, which adapts to the natural contraction of the hand.  This supports the ergonomically expansive grip position.  Even when using a leading grip, EPICURE acts as a role model; the recontoured bolster effectively protects fingers from making contact with the sharp blade and imparts good control and safety.
