The knife was called Caesar, because it draws inspiration from the history of the Roman empire, this knife like the great Roman Emperor and Consul "Gaius Iulius Caesar", it ranks at the top of our range of kitchen knives.

We define Cesar as the "emperor" of our knives as well " Iulius Caesar" was the greatest and most influential man and emperor in ancient Rome, so our Caesar, in our opinion, will become the largest and most useful Knife in the hands of the Great International Chefs.

Caesar is a Large Chef Knife, designed for professional chefs  and semi professional people that love work in kitchen, and in general  for all professionals in the sector, who love to have a multifunctional and at the same time highly technical Tool.

Caesar is a knife that does not go unnoticed, for 2 Main " aesthetic " motivations, the  first one is  " generous dimensions"  and the second one is the " sinuous line ".

It was created to facilitate daily work in the kitchen.

From a strictly aesthetic point of view and if we wanted to look for a similarity with Modern Architecture, the shapes of our knife vaguely remember the shapes of the architectural structures of the Great Iranian Architect Zaha Hadid.

Our Scipione knife is inspired by the exploits of Publius Cornelius African Scipio (in Latin: Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus) also known simply as Scipio l'Africano (Scipio Africanus) was a Roman politician and military member of the Cornelia gens.

 

He earned his "African" cognomen ex virtute following the successful campaign in Africa, during which he defeated the Carthaginian general Hannibal in the battle of Zama.

Gladius Scipione is a "small" Chef's knife, compact and compact, "chef's knife" or "su-chef", it is intended for both professionals and lovers of cooking.

It is suitable for all professional kitchens but also for home kitchens, its compact size is its strong point, in the kitchen, it does most of the cutting work but unlike its "Caesar" major Alter Ego, it can also be used by those who are not very familiar with the use and use of knives, housewives or new chefs, easy to use and in tight conditions (can also be used on small cutting boards) which is why it is becoming a model so requested by Pub, Take Away, Bar and Lounge Bar (where professional kitchens are small in size).

The advantages are obvious, thanks to its manageability, the knife has compact dimensions, despite being a universal knife, because it lends itself to various uses, chopping, cutting, slicing. Scipio, like all Gladius Design knives, are perfectly balanced.

There is a great balance between blade and handle.

The peculiar characteristics of the knife allow to implement most of the cutting methods and techniques. Its design and its functional balance allows you to challenge the law of gravity, significantly reducing the friction of the air that cuts through the blade.

Our Cerberus knife, inspired by Cerberus (in ancient Greek: Κέρβερος, Kérberos) was a character from Greek mythology, that is, one of the monsters guarding the entrance to the underworld on which the god Hades reigned. His job was to guard Hades' or Averno's access so that none of the dead could get out. The term Cerberus has entered the Italian language to designate, par excellence and often ironically, a grim and difficult to overcome guardian.

A universal chef knife, compact, precise and reliable. For its moderate size, it is really very compact, it is also suitable for home kitchens and home use.

Cerberus for its size is a knife suitable for men but also for women. An Italian or Russian or American housewife could have a Cerberus in her kitchen and perform all the cutting functions.

The model combines the qualities of both a "giuto" and a "nakiri".

 

Cerberus is compact, strong, precise and reliable.

The compact design gives the possibility to work in a limited space and on small cutting boards. At the same time, Cerberus has kept the width of a large kitchen knife, which allows us to maintain a uniform cut even when we cut large products and large bunches of vegetables.

The shape of the tip is made in such a way as to preserve the possibility of cutting with a puncture or making a delicate cut.

The knife is inspired by the great history of the Roman empire and in particular, we decided to call it Pretorian, because the Praetorian Guards (in Latin: cohortes praetoriae) was a military department of the Roman Empire, which had to watch over and protect the emperor , from a purely symbolic point of view, our Pretorian is the knife that by definition protects and helps the chef's work in international and non-international kitchens.

Our main purpose is to safeguard, help and protect the work of our dear Chefs friends.

Our Pretorian is a universal knife, mainly developed by and for professional chefs. The model combines the quality of a classic slicing knife and a precision one, like the knives used in Japanese cuisine to cut and carve sushi.

Length and Flexibility are two important characteristics of the model in question, the length guarantees in the same unit of time, a greater cut of vegetables, meat, or fish.

Flexibility allows it to be manageable and resistant.

This perfect balance helps significantly, the shoulder joint " scapolo omerale" , all the bones of the arm: radius, humerus, ulna, including the biceps and triceps muscles.
