about our cookware
the Blackbeard pans are scratch-resistant and extremely suitable for intensive use. Forget regular non-stick layers that start to wear out after 1 to 2 years of use, and where the coating layer ends up in your food: the stainless steel honeycomb pattern extends the lifespan of the current non-stick layers to at least 5 years.

Made of the finest German steel, we present to you the Wigbold Chef’s Knife. Made of strong German stainless steel. Named after the German pirate Wigbold, often described as the brains behind the pirate band. The most important feature of a chef’s knife is that it needs to be razor- sharp.
Each Wigbold is delivered with a sharpening stone (whetstone) 1000/6000. You can download the manual below to make sure you will always have a razor-sharp Wigbold Chef’s Knife.

Why are the current campaigns not on Kickstarter?
Kickstarter doesn’t allow the same product campaign twice, this is why this campaign is now running through the Crowd Cookware website, but with the same terms. When there aren’t enough pirates on board, your order will be fully refunded without any questions.
What if not enough pirates climb on board?
Your order will be fully refunded, no questions asked
What is the delivery time of the Blackbeard
Before Christmas 2020
What is the delivery time of the Wigbold
The approximated delivery time for the Wigbold is between September and October 2020
Is The Blackeard Armada Cookware set induction proof?
Yes he is! Thanks to the aluminum core that evenly distributes the heat over the entire pans The Blackbeard Complete Armada set is suitable for all heat sources, including induction.
What are the pans made of?
The pan consists of the following layers: Outer Layer – SUS 430 Stainless Steel Middle Layer – 1050 Aluminum Inner Layer – SUS 304 Stainless Steel Blackbeard Honeycomb Framework
What temperatures can the pans withstand?
TÜV tested our pans and concluded that they can withstand temperatures of up to 300 degrees Celsius. We used a safety margin of 50 degrees Celsius and can say with 100% certainty that 250 degrees Celsius won’t be a problem.
What kind of coating is used?
The non-stick coating is made of PTFE (whitford coating), but PFOA free. Please know that virtually every pan in the market is made of PTFE, which itself is not considered hazardous (contrary to PFOA). In the comments of our Kickstarter you can find very detailed information about the tests we have run on our products and about the Whitford Coating
Are the knives dishwasher safe?
Although the stainless steel is dishwasher safe, we strongly recommend cleaning your knife by hand. The banging around that happens in the dishwasher can damage the cutting edge of your knife.

How much does each knife weigh?
11.8” x 9.8” x 8.2” | 7.5” deep
Are the handles hollow or solid?
The handle is hollow casted. The weight of a knife is one of its most important aspects. To achieve the perfect weight, we’ve tested different knives for months. We discovered that the weight of each knife is ideal and Michelin star chefs have confirmed this. Hollow casting turned out to be the best technique to achieve the perfect weight.
How do you ensure lifetime sharpness for the chef’s knife?
Right from the beginning, it was our goal to extend the maximum lifespan of a chef’s knife. To realize this, we took bold design decisions and pushed the boundaries of manufacturing possibilities beyond premium standards.
We’ve made the blade bigger to extend the life cycle of the cutting edge, as the blade gets a fraction smaller after each sharpening process.
Each Wigbold is paired with a matching sharpening stone with code 1000/6000, to maintain your Wigbold’s cutting edge.
Are you unable to re-sharpen your knife? Then our pirate code gets you off the hook: send your Wigbold chef’s knife to our Crowd Cookware’s crow’s nest and we’ll return it razor-sharp for free.
