Due Cigni collections
Due Cigni 1896 Walnut
The kitchen knives from the Due Cigni 1896 Walnut collection were designed by Oreste Frati, the owner of Fox Knives. For the design of these knives he looked at the design of classic European kitchen knives. The handles are made from walnut wood, giving the knives a classic and stylish look. The blades are made from X50Cr15MoV stainless steel. This type of steel is easy to sharpen, if, after some time, it has lost some of its sharpness.
Due Cigni Arne Line
The Arne Line knives were designed by a familiar face in the knife world: Danish knife maker Jens Ansø. According to Due Cigni, these knives are dishwasher safe. Nevertheless, we do not recommend washing the knives in the dishwasher, as this can still damage the handle and blade over time. And that would be a shame! The Arne Line is comprised of two handle materials: Ziricote wood and HPL, which stands for High Pressure Laminate. Each knife is made from one piece of 12C27 stainless steel, and the knives have a full-tang construction. As a result, these knives are rock-solid.
Due Cigni Coquus
The Due Cigni Coquus kitchen knives are made of X50Cr15MOV stainless steel, just like the 1896 Walnut series and the Tuscany series. This type of steel is easy to sharpen, should the knife lose some of its sharpness over time. The handle is made of an African type of wood known for its dark colour: grenadilla wood. This type of wood is often used for musical instruments and decorative pieces. A great choice for stylish kitchen knives!
Due Cigni Hakucho
The knives in the Due Cigni Hakucho series were inspired by Japanese-style knives. They have a classic olive wood handle and a blade made from stainless 4119 nitro-B steel, a type of steel that is easy to sharpen.
Due Cigni Tuscany
The handles of Tuscany knives are made from olive wood; a light type of wood, both in weight and colour. The distinctive grain in the wood is unique, so the knives may vary slightly from the product photo: this is normal with natural products. It only adds to the uniqueness of these high-quality knives! In addition, olive wood is naturally antibacterial, which is of course a nice feature for a kitchen knife. The Due Cigni Tuscany kitchen knives are made of X50Cr15MOV stainless steel, just like the 1896 Walnut series and the Coquus series.
