Pallares Solsona Pruning Shears with carbon steel blades
Each Pallarès tool-blade is hand-fashioned from high-quality carbon steel. Carbon steel is harder than stainless steel and will hold its edge longer before needing to be sharpened. It does require a bit of care and attention. It is also natural for carbon steel to develop a patina over time.
Carbon steel makes a harder and stronger cutting blade than stainless steel, it is also easier to sharpen. In return for its high performance, carbon steel will need a little bit of love and care, as it will tend to oxidise if not well maintained.
- To avoid rusting, we recommend that carbon steel blades are kept oiled.
- Do not soak in water and never place in the dishwasher.
- To clean your knife, wipe the blade with a damp cloth and dry immediately.
- To reduce the frequency of re-sharpening, we suggest using wooden chopping boards.
- If rust begins forming, use a scouring pad and an acid like vinegar and gently rub it on the affected area.
- After the rust is removed, dry the blade, re-sharpen and oil to prevent future rusting.
If your carbon steel blade is beginning to rust, use a scouring pad and acid, such as vinegar and gently rub it on the affected area. After the rust has been removed, dry the blade, re-sharpen and oil to prevent future rusting.
Founded in 1917 in the small town of Solsona, Spain, Pallares is a third generation family-run business founded on hand-craftsmanship. Based in a region where the knife-craftsmanship tradition dates back to the sixteenth century, today Pallares is one of the only remaining knife-making workshops.
Pallares has always chosen and still chooses the materials it uses by always seeking uncompromising quality.
The main aim of the production of Pallares Solsona knives continues to centre around the quality of the cutting edge, which is why carbon steel is their preferred blade material and all knives are sharpened by hand.
