THE DESIGNEvery 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 degrees for optimal sharpness. The steel core is of splendid VG10 steel, often called "super steel" with hardness of HRC 58-60. The multiple Damascus layers are formed around the core by alteration of the 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.
THE EXPOSUREEdge of Belgravias bold avant-garde design won recognition in competition with Apple at the 2012 D&AD product design awards. Selected for the Monocle Magazine British design edition in July and received thanks from Her Majesty the Queen they will be put to excellent use in the Royal kitchen.
Apart from recommendations in Gwyneth Paltrows Goop and features by Design Milk and the Cool Hunter the blades were subjected to the harsh scrutiny of local chefs. Needless to say, they achieved rave reviews:
- I absolutely love it. It is well balanced, light and very comfortable to use with a very fine edge on it. I would be happy to work with it all day every day, says Phil Wilson, Executive Chef at the Thomas Cubitt.
- I found the blade to be of very good, high-grade quality, notes John Williams, Executive Head Chef at the Ritz.
Lékué's products are a world first in that they are made from 100% Platinum Silicone that can withstand temperatures ranging from -60c to 260c. Platinum Silicone is a type of silicone that uses only platinum (white gold) as a catalyser, which increases its quality, apart from silicone's other properties. This is the ideal material for manufacturing moulds or products that will come into contact with food.
In addition, you can easily fold and store Leukue’s products made with this flexible material without deforming them, so you save space in the kitchen. Silicone doesn't break like glass and doesn't rust like metals.
Cooking with Lékué's platinum silicone moulds is completely safe; they don't leave residues and don't alter the flavour of food. All the products comply with the quality, technical and design specifications that guarantee durability. All Lékué products are regularly analysed by independent laboratories to certify that they are safe for food use.
Lékué's products are non-stick, they do not require greasing, making unmoulding easier. You save calories because you don't need to add extra butter and/or oil. Perfect!
