Set of carving knives in Veloursleather bag, 3 pieces, each consisting of a carving knife with double-sided, curved edge (no. 3353000), a small blade, skew edge, for intarsia (no. 3356000) and a straight edge with round neck (no. 3358000). All knives have a hornbeam handle and are made of special carbon steel. They have a hardness of 59 - 61 HRc and are delivered pre-sharpened. Before the first use they should be sharpened with a whetstone to get their final sharpness.
Our tools are made from a carbon tool steel and not from stainless material. This means that the tools are naturally subject to corrosion. With these tools, corrosion can already occur through hand perspiration or fluctuations in humidity. For this reason, we recommend that all our customers clean the tools after use or during storage with a cloth lightly soaked in oil. This light film of oil can prevent corrosion.
To prevent the tools from corrosion, we recommend applying a small amount of oil on the tools after use or before storing them for a longer period.
Before storing the tools, moisten the blade with a cloth lightly soaked in oil (white oil or our art. no. 3708000).
