Since 1890, The Originals collection included 12 sizes, numbered from 1-12. Today, number 1 and 11 are no longer produced. The fabrication of the No. 1 stopped in 1932. With its 2cm blade and its box wood handle, it was meant to be attached to a key fob or watch chain and used as a pipe cleaner, nail cleaner... As for the No.11, it was taken out of the range in 1935, its size being considered too similar to the other large knives.
The main features of the carbon steel are its exceptional cutting quality and very easy sharpening. To protect the blade against rust, the blade must be wiped clean of fingerprints and washed and dried after each use.
