AFFIDENTÉ® Process: A NOGENT Nogent exclusivity 3 stars for exceptional sharpness After a first sharpening done by an automated machine the blades are ground in bevel. They are then subjected to a final manual operation to produce the Affidenté® toothing, a 3-star NOGENT Nogent exclusive. The toothing, virtually invisible to the naked eye, allows a cut without equal that one masters perfectly. Incredibly sharp, knives can cut food without effort and without danger. Their use is smooth, since the edge does not give the unpleasant sensation of a notched blade.
