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.
