German test institute certified HAIKU Santoku "good"

German test institute certified HAIKU Santoku "good" The German government consumer organisation Stiftung Warentest is famous in Germany for its test, published in advertisement free "TEST" magazine. The tests are considered hard but fair by the German audience. HAIKU was rated 1,9 (= good). Only one German made knife was slightly better with 1,8, which is due to the fact that the German knife could be washed in a dishwasher and HAIKU can not.

Be aware of counterfeit type 301 block sets

Be aware of counterfeit type 301 block sets

Good things are always copied. Especially our CHROMA type 301 blocks. Be aware of the fakes, they are easy to spot. On the box it just says "PORSCHE" and it also contains a pair of cheap scissors. On the real product you can always read "Design by F.A. Porsche"! These block sets can be found on the internet.
