Cutipol cutlery is the result of a constant effort for improvement, an insatiable spirit of innovation and the gathering of expertise and know-how that dates back to the very origins of the cutlery industry in Portugal. Traditional hands-on craftsmanship is paired with modern technology to produce these superb contemporary flatware pieces. Modern machinery is used for much of the initial work but traditional craftsmanship still plays a major role. While the use of machinery and a certain level of automation are common within the industry to facilitate consistent production and improve safety, Cutipol artisans employ their skills and expertise in forging and shaping steel, which are further refined with machines around them.
José Joaquim Ribeiro, with his brothers and sisters, has run Cutipol for three generations with a focus on solid engineering, a commitment to quality and the understanding that simple is beautiful. Cutipol focuses its attention to detail and the very best method of manufacture, which are evident in the company’s products. Flatware, when designed well, looks like a small cluster of precision tools: perfectly balanced, honed to an edge.
Stainless steel is an alloy known for its strength, durability and, not surprisingly, stain resistance. The quality of stainless steel is determined by the constituent proportions of chromium (for corrosion resistance and luster) and nickel (for scratch resistance). There are many types of stainless steel and 18/10 is considered the highest quality and best suited to everyday use and, as such, it is the only one used in Cutipol’s range of flatware.
All items are dishwasher safe. Even the highest quality raw materials will stain and deteriorate unless proper care is taken to maintain your cutlery. After each use, wash the cutlery in warm water and mild detergent. Avoid using detergent with chlorine or anti-limestone agents. Avoid using abrasive cloths or scrubs. Be sure to wash off any food remains as soon as possible after use.
In the dishwasher make sure that the cutlery is completely dried at the end of the cycle. Hand dry with a soft cloth and store in a dry place. Take extra care with the knife blades as they are made of 420 steel, which give them more cutting power and hardness, and are less resistant to oxidation. Pre-wash rinsing is important. Minimize contact of the flatware with the dishwasher steam. Remove the cutlery from the dishwasher as soon as the cycle has finished and wipe each item with a dry soft cloth, even if the item looks dry. They should be kept in a dry place.
Cutipol Ebony can be placed in the dishwasher. In order to maintain the handles darker longer period of time, you can use a common use moisturizer lotion.
