Detectable Professional Chef's & Cook's Knives

Chefs Knives with Detectable Plastic HandlesOn the vast majority of the knives included in the Detectamet range, three handle types are available.

The Regular Handle - standard, polypropylene metal detectable handle, originally designed for holding the knife safely and comfortably for long periods.

The Ergo handle - polypropylene metal detectable handle, developed for the professional user who uses knives all day, our research and development team worked with various food processing companies to develop this innovative handle, the resulting design provides the following benefits:

  • Double tapered design, ergonomically designed to reduce stress to hand and wrist
  • Contoured thumb platform and rounded blade back for added comfort

All handles are insert moulded from metal detectable polypropylene co-polymer.

Test to assess compliance with the current EC food legislation (EN) 1935/2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food and repealing directives. All products come with a certificate of conformity. Migration test reports available on request.

We recommend that a coding system is used for all Professional Knives in the range to prevent cross-contamination, tainting of food and to seperate production lines in the food industry.

Please insert (E) after order code to request the Ergo handle or (ES) to request the Ergo Safety handle. The regual handle will be sent if there is no prefix. For example DTM 47P609 (R) (ES). This would be a 9”/23cm Scimitar Butcher Knife with Red Ergo Safety handle.

When placing an order please add the suffix R, B, Y, G, O, BK, W or P to the code of your choice to indicate your required handle colour.
