Crafting the Perfect Knife™

How the Perfect Knife is just like the Best Chocolate you’ve Ever Had

By Canada Cutlery Inc. (CCI)

For CCI, crafting the perfect knife is a lot like the process of making the best chocolate.

As one of the main ingredients, it is essential to only get cocoa from the best trees found in the growing range of the Equator. The cocoa is brought to the factory where professionals run tests to ensure it meets or exceeds safety and quality standards. Then, computers and robotic systems transform the cocoa into one of the world’s most adored treats. As one of the largest sectors of the food industry, humans all over the world depend on chocolate for their livelihoods – to show love, perform rituals, cure sickness, bad moods, and much more!

Now, how is this like creating the perfect knife? Just like in the process of making the finest chocolate, there are key ingredients required in the production of steel, a precise “recipe” to follow in manufacturing the knife and as a result, millions of people who depend on having the best quality product.

It's the raised thick part between the blade and the handle, which usually distinguishes the knife as fully forged.

Beware of companies that manufacture knives with an imitation bolster as these knives are invariably cheaper in quality compared against a “one piece fully forged” knife.
