The straight blade and rounded head of this paring knife is ideal for peeling or chopping vegetables and fruits and other intricate knife work. A handle that is almost equal in length to the blade means maximum control when precise tasks—like hulling strawberries, scoring potatoes or slicing shallots—are at hand. Made from a high carbon stainless steel, the blade is forged and tempered to precise specifications that provide a superior edge and lasting durability. The olive wood handle is carved from thousand year old trees, harvested under government supervision from protected forests in Spain. Olive wood is notable for a dense, firm structure that boasts a unique variegated wood grain pattern, making the knife attractive enough to leave out on the cutting board even after all your ingredients have been peeled, chopped, sliced and diced.
Hand washing and drying is recommended to prolong the use and integrity of the knife blade. The olive wood handles are made from a living natural material that requires little care. Every once in a while, when the color of the wood begins to look dull, rub the handles with a few drops of oil, such as flaxseed oil.
The Felix family of Solingen, a city in Germany about 20 miles east of Düsseldorf, began blacksmithing knives back in 1790 as a complement their thriving farm. In the 1800s, Karl Gustav Felix began to focus solely on the production of knives, and he officially registered his company, Felix Solingen, with the government in 1843. Felix Solingen’s knives are forged from one piece of high carbon stainless steel, a traditional method that includes over 45 separate steps and ensures cutting efficiency as well as safety.
