Zepter Felix Knives

Quality starts with the raw material. FELIX only uses premium raw materials such as high-alloyed X50 CrMoV15 Chromium Molybdenum Vanadium steel, Japanese VG10 multi-layer Damascus steel, or X65 CR13 razor blade steel. The blades are drop-forged in one piece. Depending on the design, they can also be stamped. Due to the homogenous and compact grain microstructure of the steel, all blades guarantee flexibility, resistance to corrosion and great edge retention.

Quality is also precise workmanship. FELIX knives are hand-made. Each knife goes through about 45 different work stages before it leaves the production line. Every single step relies on centuries-old Solingen knowledge, skilled craftsmanship, precision work, good eye, care and love for detail.

Quality is also design. The perfect functionality of a knife depends on how it is shaped, how it fits in your hand, how it is balanced, how the power gets to the blade when cutting. From the first look and the first touch, Felix knives distinguish themselves through their superior quality and beautiful design.

FELIX Solingen has been producing knives with traditional craftsmanship since 1843. The production process begins with blade blanks of high-alloyed steel being drop-forged in one piece or stamped – depending on the design.

All blade blanks are ice-hardened; some are even vacuum-hardened. The initial grindings are followed by fine-grinding, otherwise known as dry-fining. At FELIX, the blades are dry-fined and mirror-polished. This is how the fine surface structure of the blade is made, whereby the slight roughness is explicitly desired so that nothing clings to the blade. In addition, dry-fining finishes and reseals the surface against corrosion.

During assembly, each handle is fitted to the blade blank by hand. Subsequently, the handle surfaces are polished. Grinding becomes increasingly finer, and only then is the blade sharpened on the stone, according to the old tradition. A lot of experience and precision is required to keep the angle and the grinding pressure constant when sharpening. That is why polishers are also called freehand artists in Solingen.

Other steps involved in the production of Felix knives include blade and handle sandblasting, straightening, edge polishing, etching and ultra-sonic cleaning.

Experienced staff carries out a final inspection of every knife to ensure a 100% quality control. Only perfect products make it to the warehouse. However, they rarely stay there long, as traditional Solingen craftsmanship and the unique quality of FELIX knives are so popular.
