*Original press release available for download below.

An impressive blade and tremendous sharpness for real
The “AJAX” chef’s knife from the 1905 series
is honoured with the “KitchenInnovation of the Year® 2020” consumer award as
well as the “Golden Award”.

Friedr. Dick has created an impressive chef’s knife with the
AJAX chef’s knife from the forged 1905 design series that not only makes men’s
hearts beat faster. The AJAX chef’s knife was able to inspire both the panel of
experts and the consumers with an above-average overall performance in the
unique evaluation procedure for the “Kitchen Innovation” award. Quality,
functionality and material quality coupled with an attractive design and
product features that consumers expect – the AJAX was able to impress with
these qualities. The chef’s knife also received a very special and coveted
award: the “Golden Award – Best of the Best“ for the most popular product with
the highest overall rating in the respective category.


The AJAX chef’s knife will give you an appetite for
cooking and grilling like no other knife. The impressive 22 cm long blade
glides through meat like a knife through butter and continues even when it
encounters small bones. Whether meat, poultry, fruit or vegetables – the AJAX
is a real all-rounder. The knife’s curved cutting edge make rocking cuts easy,
enabling raw fish and meat but also herbs to be cut effortlessly. The knife can
be hung up and therefore safely stowed away thanks to the practical hole in the
knife blade.


This special Ajax knife owes its name to the Greek
hero of the Trojan War. When developing this unique blade, it was modelled on
an over 100 year old cleaver that Friedr. Dick had in its product range for
butchers and meat traders at that time. This traditional shape together with
the modern design and top quality will win you over: the special weight,
superior sharpness and high-quality craftsmanship will impress as soon as you
start working with the knife.


The 1905 series combines a historic design with
state-of-the-art production technology and continues to captivate with its
exceptional appearance. As the name suggests, this special knife series dates
back to the year 1905. Friedr. Dick developed a timelessly modern chef’s knife
series with solid collars back then, replacing the traditional riveted handle
that had been previously used up until that point.


The new AJAX chef’s knife will be available from
specialist retailers.
