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: Item details: The wide set serration on these bread knives are individually sharpened to a visible bevel. Evenly spaced along the blade, these carefully designed points make for a cleaner cut for both crusty loaves and soft breads. The blade is made using a proprietary stainless steel (chromium, molybdenum, vanadium) which is harder and more durable than the average European stainless steel.
Also available with a plum wood handle.
