The Manufacture of Dexter Russell Cutlery

DexterLogoKnowing how a product is manufactured and how to care for it is often as important as knowing how to use it. In the above video, our friends from Dexter Russell do an expert job of showing the craftsmanship and nearly 200 years of experience that goes into making the professional-quality cutlery that Dexter is known for. The process of making a professional-quality knife from a piece of steel is detailed from blanking and forging, to heat treatment and grinding. Once the knife is complete, it’s also important to maintain it properly. Techniques for keeping the blade sharp are also covered.
