As all our cutlery is made exclusively from high-quality 18/10 stainless steel, it is resistant to corrosion and acids. When producing our steel-handled knives we ensure that there is no join between the blade and handle, thus achieving a smooth, seamless transition. The blade’s special steel guarantees that it will remain sharp for a very long time and cut superbly.
All cutlery sets are suitable for the dishwasher (55 °C). Cleaning by hand is gentler, especially for knives.

- Question: What is the difference between a steel-handled or hollow-handled knife and a monobloc knife?
Hollow-handled and steel-handled knives are put together from two different metals. The blade is made from a special blade steel and forms a perfect balance with the handle. Monobloc knives, on the other hand, are punched from a single piece of steel (generally simple 18/0 steel).
The benefit of hollow-handled and steel-handled knives in comparison with monobloc knives is their high quality and the resulting top quality edge retention, as well as their durability and sharpness.
- Question: What is special about a steel-handled knife?
Steel-handled knives are made from two different metals which are welded together. The blade is made from high-quality blade steel which ensures exceptional and long-lasting sharpness. The handle, in turn, is made from the same material as the other components of the cutlery set – this handle is made as a solid piece. Our H. HEINE cutlery set contains such top quality steel-handled knives. The handle is made from 18/10 stainless steel and the blade from a nickel-free blade steel. Owing to the fact that all knives are welded and not bonded, the two knife elements blend seamlessly into one another.
