Brand: Jean Dubost
The Laguiole knife has been used in the south of France for over 200 years. Jean Dubost's family, inspired by the traditional peasant tool, has been crafting the artisan blades since 1920. Surrounded by legend and myth, the Laguiole knife still carries the mark of its ancestors. A bee that is found engraved on all Laguiole products, was originally part of Napoleon Bonaparte's imperial seal. Local legend states it was bestowed upon the Laguiole village as a token of Napoleon's gratitude for the townspeople's courage during his many battles. Others insist that the bee represents the knife's reliability. The blade, made of high-grade stainless steel, is stamped, then ground and then polished in over 25 different manual production stages. Soft and subtle to the touch, a Laguiole knife will stay sharp and will never rust. Recently, the Laguiole mark has expanded to include flatware, wine waiters and cutlery crafted with the same quality and craftsmanship. Trusted and revered in kitchens and restaurants through-out France, the Dubost family is happy for the Laguiole tradition to finally reach this side of the Atlantic.
The Healthy Legend ceramic knives are made of an advanced, high-tech ceramic called zirconium oxide (also called zirconia). Healthy Legend is the highest quality and similar in quality to the Kyocera ceramic knifves. Our deluxe mirror black blade is even 20% harder than the white blade with better breakage resistance and sharper. This material, which is second in hardness only to diamond, was originally developed for industrial applications where metal components failed. Zirconium oxide is extremely hard, wear resistant, and chemically inert. Zirconium oxide has a hardness of 8.2 mohs (vs. steel at 5-6 mohs and diamond at 10 mohs). Not all the ceramic knives are the same. Many of them were not heat treated enough or having too much impurity. The Healthy Legend knives have the highest quality and purity. They knives have 95% Zirconium oxide and the other 5% other materials to add strength and flexibility so they are not as easy to break when drop to the ground. Frequently Asked Questions: How do I sharpen ceramic knives? Unlike traditional steel cutlery, ceramic knives generally do not need to be sharpened at all for their entire life. The Johncera stay sharp about 50 times longer than the best stainless steel knives. It can be sharpen with ceramic knife sharpener if necessary. Will a ceramic knife shatter if dropped? Johncera ceramic knives will not shatter if dropped from 3 feet. As with any knife, however, the delicate tip can break if the knife is dropped on it tip first. How can I damage a ceramic knife? You can break the tip (and possibly snap the blade off the handle) if you use a ceramic knife to pry, rather than slice. You can also chip the edge if you cut into bones and twist. Ceramic is very strong and very hard but don't have as much flexibility. Therefore, if you use it correctly, it can last for years.
