In 1933, the two oldest and most respected U.S. knife manufacturers merged to form Russell Harrington Cutlery. The new company specialized in providing innovative knives for the professional and industrial markets. In 2001, the company changed its name to Dexter-Russell, Inc. Today, Dexter-Russell continues to produce and distribute one of the world’s broadest lines of professional cutlery.
I bought this knife because another brand of stainless steel knife would not keep it's edge. While on a charter trip I notice the mate was using this Knife to fillet our fish. He said this knife staid sharper longer.
VERY SHARP AND HOLD AN EDGE. I USE THEM ALMOST DAILY.
I bought only one at first, used it, then got two more. Im in construction and have large working hands. The wide handle is awesome to hold after long day at work when smaller knives may be hard to grip...im a big carbon steel fan cause of sharpness and holding an edge so can rust but SO easy to maintain. A trick i do once or twice in beginning on new carbon knives (not all) is put yellow mustard right on the blades and kinda make pattern with fingertip, like a snowflake and let sit around hr, (it will force a patina) then wash the blade and put mineral oil on...( buy the 2 or 3 dollar one the grocery laxative section) if your able to ingest it... that qualifys it as food grade to me(alot more, alot cheaper)...rub in and wipe off few times, (wood handle too), then thick coat on all and let it sit for at least few hour( must stop rust process that mustard started) otherwise a carbon knife will kinda have a stink to it when its cutting fruits, veg. (Acidic foods) cause its trying to oxide, which is the dark streaks that dont wash off.. after all cleaned off then just barely touch up with fine grit shapener, I like ceramic rods.....the knife is a ABSOLUTE RAZOR....LOVE IT....
The service I received from FSW was great. It was a small order but they took care of it promptly. The Dexter-Russell sharpening steel works just like it should! I like it!
