The kitchen knives from the Alpha Olive-series by Güde are ice hardened and, in German tradition, made of chrome-vanadium-molybdenum steel. This steel is hardened to a hardness of about 56 HRC. According to Güde, through this process you reach an optimal combination of hardness, sharpness preservation, sharpening possitibilities and resistance to chipping (breaking off pieces of steel). The forged knives are, for a great extent, hand made and sharpened.
The handles are made of olive wood with a beautiful drawing. This wood is very hard, also because Güde has selected wood that is 100 to 200 years old. For this reason, it is also very resistant to moisture
