Edge of Belgravia
At Edge of Belgravia we pioneer exclusively designed chef knives to achieve prominent placement in kitchens all over the world. Based in distinguished Belgravia, London, our cutting-edge design team work diligently to produce bold, confident, contemporary culinary works of art. Without compromise, we strive to achieve excellence in quality, design and composition.
Ceramic: Ceramic blades are second to diamond in hardness, rendering our knives tireless kitchen companions. Made from zirconium oxide, Zr02, forged under 300 tons of pressure and a temperature of 1400˚C, our knives stay sharp for years without need for sharpening. Engineered to perfection for the discerning home chef, our ceramic range is lightweight and exceptionally sharp.
Damascus Steel: Every Edge of Belgravia Damascus blade consists of 67 layers of Japanese high carbon steel from Echizen city (old Takefu), with each layer contributing to a combined layered effect known as ‘the Damascus effect’. Each layer of steel forms a microscopic cutting edge, giving the blade a formidable sharpness and expert precision. The blade cutting angle is near 35˚ for optimal sharpness. The steel core is of splendid VG10 steel, often called “super steel”. The multiple Damascus layers are formed around the core by alternation of layers with the softer S/S 430 and S/S 431 steel types. The combination gives the Edge of Belgravia blades near surgical sharpness and supreme anti-corrosive properties.
Our Ceramic and Damascus knife ranges were designed by contemporary London based designer, Christian Bird. Christian intelligently fuses futuristic styling and maximum cutting efficiency to produce distinct, superior designs that complement the sharpness and durability of the blades.
