As the owners of a precision grinding shop, we are used to work with accuracy in the range of one thousandth millimeters for different economy branches. When resharpening cooking knives for gastronomy work, we handle expensive knives showing signs of of rough fractures on the blade.
So we went searching for the perfect steel. We found it at the steel producer of the US-military, who produces powdermetallurgical steels with a wear resistance that has never been achieved before.
More about the steel for our knives
Our experiences in medical technology proved useful. There we optimized the structure and hardness of the steel we use for months to cut fine bristles. We achieved cutting results that went from 300 cuts per knife to 10.000 cute per knife. We transferred these results to our LOLEX knife, which now has a unique endurance.
This makes it possible for us to provide a generation-guarantee for the blade of our LOLEX knives that lasts 25 years. Enhanced with european woods, sustainably farmed and carefully processed by hand with a modern, timeless design in limited editions and small series. The crafting of our LOLEX knives combines modern CNC-methods with traditional craftsmanship.
