The motto of this historic knife manufacturer is 'Good Knives are Made by Hand', and they have stayed true to these words for over 140 years. Each blade has been made the same way since 1872 using a special Solingen dry grinding technique. By grinding the blade at a steeper angle than most common knifes, the tapered edge is much sharper and stays that way for longer. At the final stage of shaping the blade undergoes a process called blue-glazing, which is one of the most time-consuming and complex techniques. It leaves each blade with a resonant, bluish tone and an extremely smooth surface. The 67 step process of production for each knife is carried out by master craftspeople, using the finest grade steel and a stunning selection of German woods ranging from cherry to walnut and iced beech.
Item details: These peeling knives have a blade designed for a close cut against the curved surface of fruits and vegetables. They can also be used for finesse work such as hulling strawberries and precisely trimming mushrooms. The ergonomic shape of the handle allows for total control as you use the knife.
Also available in walnut and dishwasher safe polyoxymethylene (POM).
Measurements: 7", 2.75" blade
Care Instructions: These knives are not dishwasher safe. Avoid leaving to soak to avoid discoloring or cracking the wooden handle. We recommend treating the blade with a food-grade knife oil semi-regularly.
