Design Notes

The new Robert Welch Professional kitchen knives are high performance knives designed for culinary excellence, whether in use by the keen home cook or professional chef. 

The precision sharpened Professional 18cm/7.5" chef's knife has a large blade and curved edge making it ideal for chopping, slicing, and dicing a variety of ingredients. Chef's knives are one of the most essential and versatile knives in any kitchen. A multi-purpose kitchen tool, they make a great starter knife and the ideal choice for preparing meat (raw or cooked), hard vegetables, herbs, nuts, salads, and for crushing garlic into a paste.

Also available: Professional Chef's Knife 15cm, Professional Chef's Knife 20cm

Robert Welch Professional kitchen knives feature a classic handle shape for comfort in the hand and are perfectly weighted and balanced for control in the kitchen. Comprising 11 knives for every task in the enthusiastic cook’s kitchen, Professional knives are slightly larger and heavier in the hand than our Signature knives. World Edge Geometry combined with ice hardened German stainless steel provide a harder more resilient blade with exceptional longer lasting sharpness.

Technical Information

The 18cm/7.5" chef's knife has a fully forged German DIN 1.4116 stainless steel blade with a full tang for superior strength. 

German stainless steel, hardened to Rockwell 57, is used in the manufacture of all Robert Welch Professional kitchen knives. The ice hardened, German steel allows for easy home maintenance and a superior sharpness that lasts. 

The handle is made from tactile DuPont™ POM and features the RW insignia, a permanent steel detail.

Care & Need to Know

Download our guide to sharpening your kitchen knife with the hand-held Knife Sharpener.
 

When washing your kitchen knives by hand (recommended):
Rinse your kitchen knives to remove all traces of food as soon as possible after use. Wash in warm soapy water with a microfibre cloth or non abrasive brush**. Try to avoid soaking your kitchen knives and always dry thoroughly immediately after washing, using a microfibre cloth.

When washing your kitchen knives in a dishwasher:
• Wash on a short hot cycle 65°-75°C (150°-167°F)
• Use quality branded all in one dishwasher tablets*
• Keep Rinse Aid topped up and Salt (for hard water areas).
• Avoid washing with non-stainless steel metals (this can cause rust staining).
• Ensure the dishwasher filters are cleaned and use a proprietary dishwasher cleaner regularly.

*For UK customers we recommend Fairy Platinum Plus and for US customers Cascade Platinum Plus

**Always avoid scouring with pads or abrasive cleaners as this will scratch the surface.

Additional care of DuPont™ knife handles:
Periodically apply a mineral oil to handles to maintain their colour. Please remove any excess oil.

Design Story: Professional Knives

Design Story: Professional Knives

Taking inspiration from Robert Welch’s 1979 Kitchen Devils Professional range, our new Professional kitchen knives have a European appearance with deeper blades and a straighter cutting edge. The more traditional shaped handle paired with an increased weight and ice-hardened blade is engineered for frequent use and longer lasting edge retention, allowing the execution of precision techniques with absolute finesse. A distinctive blend of heritage and cutting-edge performance, the Professional knife range sets a new standard and is destined to become an enduring symbol of culinary excellence.
