Cutting a tomato is a real test of a knife's sharpness.
This knife has a serrated blade that cuts into the tomato skin with no nonsense. It is ideal for cutting thin tomato slices. Naturally, the knife can manage other cutting and slicing jobs that require precision.
The stainless steel used by Marttiini is easy to maintain as a blade material. A stainless steel blade remains sharp for long. Chromium makes up 13% of the steel mixture and the hardness of the mixture is 53-54 Rockwell units (HRC). A diamond sharpener is recommended for sharpening chromium steel.
Rubber mixture is extremely well suited as the material for knife handles. An ergonomically shaped rubber handle can be washed in a washing machine, is easy to maintain, hygienic and safe. A rubber handle feels pleasantly warm to touch even under outdoor conditions, for instance in freezing or wet weather. The roughened part of the handle and the finger guard guarantee a safe and firm grip for knives of the Condor-series.
