“REVERSO KNIFE” is a unique kitchen knife, discovered by a young professional chef, Mr. Franco Di Nicola.
Franco wanted to realise his life dream: create an innovative knife, with a functional and appealing design, able to improve the work quality of its user.
Thanks to his strong creative motivation, Mr. Franco Di Nicola, in 2008 realised the project and then, after years of development, in 2011 protected his idea depositing the relative patent, brand and design.
To build the prototype and do an extra up-grade to the project and to start the production and its marketing, MR. Franco di Nicola needed a capable partner.
So in 2012, after a punctilious search, he found the mechanical workshop Cru.Mec in Aprilia. This company is specialised in the process of precious metals using sophisticated machines.
The project was immediately loved by the manager, who put the ideas of Mr. Franco DI Nicola in a 3D design.
With their experiences they produced “REVERSO KNIFE” in its first mechanic version, and it was straightway a success.
Even the research of the blade was an important key and after a lot of meetings with different producers around Italy, they had no doubts about it, it was Mercury! Mercury is an historical company in Maniago that with MR. Franco Di Nicola created the formula “REVERSO STEEL”.
“REVERSO KNIFE” is a knife that excites and its 6 characteristics are:
1 – Unique (thanks to an extensive patent that typify all its peculiarity, as to fold itself to protect the WIRE and the top of the blade making it remain floating in the handle. Also through all its interchangeable parts, it is possible to transform and adapt the knife to every task, dressing it in the chef’s hand as a sartorial dress. By joining the GIFTS, as the PARING, it’s possible obtain a mini set which include all the knives needed in a kitchen maintaining reduced dimensions).
2 – “PURE AND STILISH” DESIGN (in its form it has an utility nonpareil. The design encloses a functionality thought right in the chef’s hand, the optimal weight outlet in the balance of the cut makes the use really comfortable and keep the user safe from possible fatigue and pain: it is totally customizable with colors, forms and blades)
3 – Totally Italian (thought, projected, patented and realised completely in Italy. It is built with top quality Italian materials. The processing of the handles is in CNC, with handcrafted trim, realised in anticorodal. An innovative formula, with the special Inox (stainless) steel in Vanadium of the blade “reverso steel”, that claim the prestigious stamp QM “Maniago Quality”)
4 – Extremely practical (lightness, ergonomic handle, WIRE resistance, no need of sheaths or suitcases, easy transportability)
5 – Realised with prestigious materials (REVERSO STEEL Inox steel enriched with Vanadium for the blade, inox steel with 316 internal components, anticorodal tooled with an oxidation system for the external parts, teak and other top quality materials)
6 – 100% Recyclable (a great environmental sensitivity distinguishes us, in fact the REVERSO RECYCLING program will take back the used parts of the knife free of charge, applying discounts on new purchases. In this way, according to current regulations, it is possible to dispose the used materials or transforming them to give them a new life)
Finally, besides the knife, thanks to the inventiveness of Mr. Franco Di Nicola and the fortuitous meeting with Marco Amadio, accredited designer and educational director of “Quasar University and design”, a line of REVERSO IDEAS will create a totally innovative products completely different from the ones currently in the market.
The first of the many projects that they want to develop will be REVERSO MODULAR, an intelligent cutting board capable of self-leveling to eliminate surface imperfections due the use or the sanitising.
The base of a work station (modular with multiple modules) that will bring an innovation in kitchens all over the world both professional and home kitchens, thanks to a managerial software and an intelligent scale. The aim will also be to illuminate the workstation that can be used as a furnishing accessory for open kitchens, or in a room or on a bar counter.
