WHY A ROLLING KNIFE?
Great knives do two things very well: feel good in your hand and cut extremely well. bolo takes this one step further, by making a knife that sits naturally in your hand, and channels the power from your hand and wrist to the blade to make cutting easier than ever before!!
HOW IT WORKS??
Traditional knives all have one common deficiency; the force you apply on the handle diminishes as it goes from the handle, through to the blade, and then to the cutting surface.
PERFECT DICING, SLICING, CHOPPING AND MINCING EACH AND EVERY TIME! FROM CUTTING CARROTS TO SLICING HERBS TO MINCING GARLIC, BOLO WILL QUICKLY BECOME YOUR NEW FAVORITE COMPANION IN THE KITCHEN!
BOLO CAN STAY MUCH LONGER THAN TRADITIONAL KNIFE!
- The blade is always rolling and not cutting on the same location all the time
- Much less force to cut food so there is much less wear on the edge
- It is made of a high grade steel that has a hardness factor of Rc-59 on the Rockwell test, keeping the blade sharp longer
How to sharpen the blade
bolo will stay sharp longer than a regular knife because: 1) the blade is always rolling and not cutting on the same location all the time, 2) you need much less force to cut food so there is much less wear on the edge and 3) it is made of a high grade steel that has a hardness factor of Rc-59 on the Rockwell test, keeping the blade sharp longer.
You can take bolo to any professional knife sharpener, send to us or do it yourself. We will gladly sharpen your bolo for free. Please send just the blade to us (carefully and securely packaged) along with return postage and return packaging. If you want to sharpen it yourself, use caution, hold the blade with a glove and slowly place the blade in an electric sharpener, rotating slowly.
Is it safe for children?
This is a knife so this is something every parent will have to decide for themselves. I (Chef Randall) as a parent allow my 3 kids to use it. My son is 12 years old and can use it extremely well, and we always supervise our daughters (age 8-10). I don’t let them cut hard vegetables, but as many parent knows kids like to participate in cooking so as an example my 8 year old helped me cut up parsley. I took off the leaves for her and then I showed her how to do it without having her hand on the cutting board so there was no way she could cut herself – I would not of course let her cut a carrot, which needs to be held when cutting.
What is best place to use bolo?
bolo was designed to be used on flat surfaces, such as a cutting board, where you would use a traditional knife.
Can it cut meat like it does vegetables?
Yes bolo can. Slice or cube steak, chicken or pork for fajitas and salads. It's a really great slicer of all cooked meats.
Will food accumulate inside bolo`s handle?
We’ve designed in to the handle ‘Food Guards’ to restrict food from going inside. While some food will accumulate inside the handle, a simply rinse is usually all that is required.
How was bolo designed to be safe ?
The bolo handle was designed with safety in mind at three (3) critical points:
1. Two (2) inside tabs secure the bottom,
2. The folding handle cover, that locks the halves together on top, and
3. An elongated pin that connects the halves at the front.
How to clean the blade?
The blade is not hard to clean; you hold it between your fingers with a pinch and just rinse it. When the blade has stuff stuck on it like cheese etc. use a sponge – we are going to post videos on cleaning on our web site as soon as the campaign is over – we are planning a lot of great demo videos so if there is anything anyone wants to see just message us and we will include them.
