Ceccaldi

In the late 1970's, as many Corsicans were reclaiming their traditional culture, the Ceccaldi family began hand producing traditional Corsican knives. Today, the family continues to hand-make their knives, each one designed and produced following the same high standards: quality, authenticity and creativity.   Ceccaldi holds the “EPV” (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant – “Living Heritage Company”) distinction from the French Ministry of Economy and Industry.

    Ceccaldi

    Chef's Knife, Horn

    $295.00

    Jean-Pierre Ceccaldi began making the traditional Corsican knife, the 'curnicciulu', and over the years expanded his production to offer a comprehensive range of knives from traditional knives, like the « vendetta », to table knives, special pieces, kitchen knives, and pocket knives. These products are designed following the same traditional high standards : quality, authenticity and creativity.

    This kitchen knife is made from ram's horn and carbon steel. Carbon steel is razor-sharp and holds its edge for a very long time. 

    Care: Carbon steel will oxidise, and will acquire a grey patina over time. It is very easy to sharpen, which is a big plus for a knife that will be used daily. The tone used by Coutellerie Ceccaldi is, unless otherwise specified, XC75 (0.75% of carbon). The proper maintenance of carbon steel is critical, more so than that of stainless steel. It is therefore intended for informed users. The blade should be cleaned under running water after each use, and dried immediately, and stored in a dry place. If used less frequently, it may be appropriate to oil the blade before storing it in a dry place.

    Kitchen Knife, Horn

    $235.00

    Jean-Pierre Ceccaldi began making the traditional Corsican knife, the « curnicciulu » and over the years expanded his production to offer a comprehensive range of knives including table, kitchen and pocket knives. Coutellerie Ceccaldi is now officially recognized as an « Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) »  or “Living Heritage Company” by the government of France, a designation set up to distinguish French companies with remarkable tradition and industrial excellence.

    This kitchen knife is made from ram's horn and carbon steel.  Carbon steel is razor-sharp and holds its edge for a very long time. The trade off is oxidation, meaning they could rust. Looked after properly, however, they will develop a patina long before any rust can take root. Once the patina has developed the surface will no longer be susceptible to further corrosion. Should rusting occur simply use a kitchen scrubby (not copper or steel wool as this will scratch the surface) and warm, soapy water to remove anything that looks like rust.  Some discolouration is normal and will develop over time.

    Terra Steak Knife, Ebony

    $205.00

    Jean-Pierre Ceccaldi began making the traditional Corsican knife, the 'curnicciulu', and over the years expanded his production to offer a comprehensive range of knives from traditional knives, like the « vendetta », to table knives, special pieces, kitchen knives, and pocket knives. These products are designed following the same traditional high standards : quality, authenticity and creativity

    The Terra is a simple and elegant table knife, which will grace all tables, from the most modern to the most classical. Assembled with a glue used in aeronautics for wood models, its blade is made of stainless steel.

    Care: Stainless steel will not oxidise, and is easier to maintain than carbon steel. Stainless steel knives are harder to sharpen. It is therefore necessary to sharpen them more regularly, and not wait until the knife is no longer sharp enough to cut. Regular sharpening is the best way to ensure your knife remains sharp throughout its lifespan. Hand wash and dry immediately. All the wood used by Ceccaldi is dry and healthy. However, as a living material, wood may expand and acquire a patina over time. To minimise this phenomenon, it is critical to avoid immersing the handle in water. You will also need to lubricate the handle once to twice a year with olive oil or sweet almond oil

    The ram or cow horn used by Ceccaldi is also a living material, so its maintenance process will be the same as for wood. You will have to ensure that you do not leave the horn immersed in water, and that you oil it regularly to prevent it from drying out.
