Observe any master ham slicer in Spain and there is one tool they cannot do without - a long, thin, flexible jamón knife. Our ham knife by Arcos is made from extremely sharp hardened stainless steel, for cutting the thinnest slices. Yet it is also very light and flexible, allowing the blade to conform to every part of your Serrano or Ibérico ham.
Arcos stainless steel knives are forged with nitrogen, a process they call Nitrum®, for a long lasting edge and great durability. The sides feature small hollows, which make the ham knife lighter and more flexible, and help it cut cleaner with less ham sticking to the blade.
A proper jamón knife is essential not only for cutting perfectly thin slices, but also because it allows you to cut from every part of a jamón, yielding more delicious ham to enjoy. And because of its quality, it is easy to sharpen and maintain.
Your knife will arrive in a plastic storage box. Wash by hand and always prime with a sharpening steel before use.
