This carving set is made in Maniago, Italy, a city renowned for its steel blade production since the 15th-century. The 6-inch blade has an American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) grade of 420, the highest cutlery steel available. The upswept blade is hand-polished for precision, with an angled handle to facilitate the rocking motion for when carving your roast or turkey. The tines of the fork are turned outward in order to properly pierce the meat and stay embedded during the cutting process.
Instead of the usual aluminum rivets widely used in the knife manufacturing industry, the paper stone handles are attached with stainless steel rivets, contributing to the lasting duration of the set for many meals to come.
Hand wash in warm water and dry thoroughly immediately after cleaning. To preserve the stainless steel blades, store the set in its cardboard box.
Made in Maniago, Italy, this carving knife and fork comes from a history of steel blade production dating back to the medieval 1500s. Due to its proximity to Venice, the old blacksmiths of Maniago were permitted to use the streams to cool and cut their steel during tool production.
The company that produced and designed this carving set was founded in 1912, specializing in farming tools. In 1952, after four generations of tool making, the family business decided to concentrate solely on knives for the home kitchen and professional butchery. Since then, it continues to innovate and improve its products. Recent innovations include knives fitted with “paperstone” handles - such as this carving set - made of post-consumer waste paper.
Carving knife with hand-polished, 6 ½-inch upswept blade and long-tined fork. Made in Italy since 1912 by a family-run business, using high-carbon German stainless steel and Italian paper stone.
Knife: 10 inches long; 6 ½ inch blade
