Tax included.


The knives of the series Red Spirit are designed for uncompromising sharpness. The blades are ground extremely slim and the cutting edge is polished. The knives are easy to guide and lead to a stunning exact cut. The material to be cut will neither be crushed nor broken so that flavourings will be preserved.

The round shaped, Asian-style handle of the knife lies perfectly in the hand while fulfilling all ergonomic requests of professionals as well as ambitious amateur chefs – a very important advantage for all usage.

The unusual shape of this knife is reminiscent of a cleaver, an indispensable tool for the processing of meat. Friedr. Dick named all cleavers after gods and heroes from mythology back in 1930. For example, the “AJAX” owes its name to “Aias” (“Ajax” in English), the main Greek hero of the Trojan War. If you bear a great name, you must also meet the expectations. The “AJAX” chef’s knife delivers on its promises: the striking style of blade with a wide side and curved cutting edge is ideal for processing meat and poultry. The knife can be hung up easily thanks to the practical hole in the blade.

We also include a nylon blade cover designed specifically for the Red Spirit Ajax knife (usually $25 if purchased separately). Please note, this cover will not fit any other knife.
