FAQ

  1. Question: What is bog oak, exactly?

Bog oak wood is obtained from oak trucks that have been refined by nature itself over time – it is therefore not a separate type of wood but rather very old and valuable oak wood. The oak trunks have survived for thousands of years in wild bogs before they were discovered and are now worked to form our ergonomic knife handles after a slow and careful drying process.

While the oak trunks lie hidden deep in the bog for thousands of years, the wood becomes coloured and hardened. This reaction provides the characteristic properties of the wood which set it apart and make it so valuable. The bog oak gets its intense black colour through this storage in the bog and has this to thank for its particularly refined appearance.

  1. Question: What is a DLC coating?

The diamond-like carbon treatment (DLC for short) is a diamond-like carbon coating and numbers among the amorphous carbon materials. It has some of the unique and characteristic properties of diamonds. The DLC coating is applied to the blades in order to further optimise their properties – for particular resistance to wear and for outstanding frictional and non-stick properties.

In addition to the increased resistance to wear, the look also benefits from the wafer-thin carbon layer because the blade becomes an unmistakeable black as a result of the surface treatment. This wonderful black knife blade stands for top quality.

  1. Question: Why is Sandvik 12C27 steel the perfect blade steel?

Sandvik 12C27 is the best rounded knife steel from the traditional Swedish company Sandvik, which has been setting continuously new standards in the steel industry and steel production for more than 150 years. The special Sandvik 12C27 steel stands out with its high hardness and tremendous sharpness, as well as impressing with its exceptional toughness and its outstanding edge performance and corrosion resistance. It guarantees optimal cutting performance and give the knife blade unbeatable sharpness and performance.

  1. Question: What does HRC stand for?

HRC denotes the Rockwell hardness and is the unit of measurement used to define the hardness of knife steel.

A soft blade shows signs of wear more quickly than a hard one, the wafer-thin cutting edge stays sharp for longer and has outstanding durability thanks to higher hardness. For this reason the quality of a knife is significantly dependent on the hardness of the knife steel.

Good kitchen knives – Made in Germany – are generally in the 55 to 57 HRC range. Outstanding kitchen knives, including ours, can even reach 59 HRC – this hardness is achieved by knives made from Sandvik 12C27 steel.

VEGGIELOVER – THE VEGETABLE KNIFE

VEGGIELOVER – THE VEGETABLE KNIFE

Germancut has just the right knife for all vegetable lovers: The VEGGIELOVER was developed by us especially for the needs of vegetarian and vegan cuisine.

Due to its short blade, the chef's knife is perfect in handling. This vegetable knife glides effortlessly through any type of fruit and vegetables for precise work and accurate cuts.

Our knives as well as our vegetable knives are top quality manufacturing craftsmanship – Made in Germany, specifically in Solingen, the City of Blades. The blade of the VEGGIELOVER is made of high-performance, fine Sandvik steel, which gives the vegetable knife a hardness of 59 Rockwell.

DLC COATING - REFINEMENT OF THE VEGETABLE KNIVES

The VEGGIELOVER vegetable knife is available in two variants: with an uncoated blade or, if desired, with a high-quality diamond-like carbon coating.

This wafer-thin carbon layer optimizes the properties of the vegetable knife blade, allowing for high strain. The special coating also ensures enhanced resistance to acids and alkalis, extreme temperatures and temperature fluctuations and results in high scratch resistance and low coefficients of friction.

The DLC technology is a finish that gives the vegetable knife blade an unmistakable black color. Our vegetable knife thus has an incomparable design and incredible sharpness.

HANDLES AND ERGONOMICS of the GERMANCUT VEGETABLE KNIVES

The handle of our high-quality vegetable knives also contributes to the unique look of the VEGGIELOVER. Elegant dark bog oak (brownish to black) or expressively light olive wood give the vegetable knife a high-end, perfectly stylish look.

Thanks to the use of natural wood, every handle and every knife is a unique piece – the wood we use for our bog oak has “matured” over thousands of years lying in bogs; the olive wood comes from wild grown trees and convinces with its expressive grain.

Of course, we know that for a vegetable knife, aesthetics are not the be all and end all, which is why the handle of the vegetable knives and on all of our kitchen knives is ergonomically shaped and therefore sits beautifully in your hand.

The perfect vegetable all-rounder

This incredible knife makes creating vegetarian dishes so easy and so quick. Our VEGGIELOVER ensures accurate work and precise cuts. That's why this first-class vegetable knife with ergonomic handle and a Sandvik steel blade is also a MUST for every kitchen. Yours too?
