The forgings are valuable knives, made with a production process called forging, which is performed with the mallet, a machine that exerts tons of pressure on 2 molds - between which a steel "billet" is placed at a temperature of about 1200 Celsius - shapes the piece. The typical characteristic shapes of the knife are obtained from the shaping of the metal: the knot and the handle. One of the characteristics of forged knives is that they are heavier than others, a quality sought after by chefs and professionals who prefer a solid handle and a clean, precise cut. The forged knife is the most suitable for cutting raw meats, roasts and vegetables with a high consistency.
