We really care about the smallest detail. Our designs stand the test of time. We use the highest quality of material available, for all our products, with every piece inspected by our Quality Control Team, before it is packed just for you. This ensures that you always attain, a finish of perfection. Our cutlery is frequently described by our customers, as elegant and beautifully designed.
Using the highest quality 18/10 Stainless Steel sheeting, the rough shape of the fork is pressed out using an industrial die.
The Stainless Steel sheet, is rolled out to create the thickness required for the tines.
The rolling process is finessed, during the second pass, to ensure the cutlery is at the correct thickness.
The handle is then formed, using pressure and a mould.
The handle is then finessed on both sides, with any additional details that are required.
The head of the fork is trimmed to the required length, width and shape for the tines.
We clip the outside tines first, to avoid the middle tines being damaged. Due to the malleable nature of Stainless Steel at high temperatures, it is important to take the time to do things correctly.
The inner tine clipping is then done.
The edges of the handles are shaped.
We then polish the head, and the tines, to ensure a smooth, consistent surface. This process removes any unwanted materials.
The head is then buffed, in preparation for the forming of the tines.
The tines are bent into shape, using a mould.
The back of the tines are polished, to ensure a more refined finish.
We stamp the back of the cutlery with the Studio William logo.
As part of the first polishing process, we prepare the cutlery for either our Satin (brushed Stainless Steel) or Mirror finishes.
At Studio William, our polishing process includes up to 36 steps. We pride ourselves on polishing our cutlery between the tines. We believe satisfaction is found in the details.
The Studio William Knives are made from a different mix of Stainless Steel, to ensure the blades do not corrode, or dull, over time.
The handles are hot forged, using a combination of traditional techniques and moulds.
The blade is then rolled, to create the surface as required.
The handles are then clipped out.
The blade is then clipped to the required silhouette.
At this point in the process, the blade is hardened, using various techniques, including cooling with ice.
All the edges are ground down, to ensure that there are no residual pieces of excess Stainless Steel.
The knives are then buffed in preparation for the polishing process.
At this point, the knives are prepared for either our Satin (brush Stainless Steel), or Mirror finishes.
Once the base polish has been completed, the serrations are added, along with the Studio William logo, which is acid-etched to the blade.
Before we send out any of our cutlery, we go through a rigorous Quality Control process, to ensure that the product fulfils our exacting standards.
