Polkowski Knives: A Name That Stands for Quality
The forged knives of the Solingen knifemaker Polkowski have been manufactured in the fourth generation since 1910. The art of craftsmanship is applied without compromise small quantities of the highest quality. From the very beginning, the knives, drop-forged from a single piece of steel, have been sharpened by hand, fitted with handles and honed by hand. This tradition creates the unique Polkowski Knives that have inspired for decades. The Polkowski Knives forge manufactory is located in Solingen, North Rhine-Westphalia, and has left a lasting mark on the cityscape.
Polkowski Knives – The Handle
Polkowski Knives chef’s knives are extremely well thought out in their function and handling, and the proportions are perfectly matched. In the majority of the knives, there is a so-called “bolster” between the knife handle and the blade, which gives the knife support and protects the fingers from slipping into the blade. The weight of the bolster provides good balance, as does the steel hand guard located at the end of the handle. Polkowski Knives are grippy and comfortable in the hand, can be guided precisely and safely and allow fatigue-free work. But the handles of Polkowski Knives are not only exceptional in their functionality, they also leave nothing to be desired in terms of elegance and material variations. Whether made of easy-care plastic, high-quality and exquisite woods, Micarta, the composite of layered cotton and epoxy resin, or steel – every Polkowski Knives is created with attention to detail and has its own charm.
Polkowski Knives – The Blades
All blades of Polkowski Knives are made of a single piece of chrome-vanadium-molybdenum steel, extremely sharp, robust and stainless. In over 40 processing steps, mostly by hand, blades with long-lasting sharpness and high edge retention are produced in the highest quality and outstanding workmanship.
Polkowski Knives – The Cutting Edge
Polkowski Knives are available with different blade edges for individual applications: The most versatile blade is the smooth edge, which is used for most cutting tasks. Polkowski Knives, known as “bread knives” have serrated or saw-ground blades that significantly increase the cutting ability and edge retention of the knife blade and cut through the food with a light clean cut. In this process, the blade is ground through in waves. Another variant is the fluted grind, which reduces the tendency of cut material to adhere to the blade, a knife that is popular for cutting soft cheeses. This category also includes the blade with perforation.
