Dexter Duoglide Kitchen Knives made in the USA
Dexter Russell is the oldest manufacturer of kitchen knives in the US. They have been in existence in some form since the early 1800′s. Most of their products are made in the USA although they do offer some economy imports. This series that we are featuring, the Duoglide, is all American made. These have received the Arthritis Foundation’s Ease-of-Use Commendation. The shape is unique and they work really well in the kitchen. Although they are American made, they are still very reasonably priced.
Here is the sales material from Dexter:
Each DuoGlide knife features the perfect Duo — the DuoGlide handle with the Duo-edge blade. The high-carbon, stainless steel blade is individually ground and honed for the ultimate edge, corrosion resistant, ultra thin for slicing, and features a professional grade cross polish. Each DuoGlide handle is soft, right-sized and textured for a secure grip, plus stain-resistant and sealed to the blade for utmost sanitation. DuoGlide knives are covered under the Dexter lifetime guarantee.
Made in USA.
