CUTLERY
Strength and Precision

The 'dies' (patterns) cut the blanks into shape in a process requiring a pressure of 200 to 500 tonnes. Surplus material is filed off, sharp edges are ground away. This application of force has a dual purpose: it hardens the cutlery and also makes it suitable for future use — after all, it should not bend when used, not even with heavy treatment.

Surplus material is ground away and any sharp edges are softened using a sanding belt. The work on the tines of the forks also requires absolute precision craftsmanship.
