Pallarès knives are hand fashioned using high quality carbon steel & elegantly set with a boxwood handle. A beautiful, yet functional every day utility knife perfect for slicing fruit, cheese & sweet treats!
Each piece is hand-stamped & made in the small town of Solsona, Spain.
Care: Carbon steel is harder than stainless steel & will hold it's edge longer before needing to be sharpened. That said, it requires special attention. Remember to keep your knife dry, as carbon steel will rust when wet. Run a towel over the knife between uses and be sure to store in a dry place. Carbon steel will naturally develop a lovely patina over time.
About: Pallarès was set up in 1917 in Solsona by brothers Luís & Carles Pallarès Canal, knifemakers and craftsmen. The family company was continued & expanded under the leadership of brothers Jesus and Juli Pallarès, sons of Lluís, master craftsmen. Today cousins David and Lluís Pallarès, the third generation, head the company.
The goal of the founders which still holds good today is to maintain the quality of the product, especially it's cutting quality, which is a fundamental characteristic of the best knives. Over time technical improvements have been incorporated into the manufacturing of the knives whilst endeavouring to maintain maximum quality. So it is that, even today, all Pallarès knives are sharpened by hand, an artisanal technique established by it's founders.
