This stainless steel 'Mittelspitz' style is a 3" spear-pointed paring knife, perfect for smaller tasks or in-hand paring. These knives were used widely among the everyday cook, and would commonly be used in the Salle D'Office or the pantry prep room. Windmühlenmesser is known for their office knives!

Robert Herder Windmühlenmesser knives are made in Solingen, Germany, and are still utilizing old hand-work techniques. Their fine, hand-ground blades are extremely light and thin and offer a great cutting feel that is not possible with chunky, mechanized-ground blades. There is no excess steel on the blades, making them lightweight and thin, and the slight convexity makes for reduced friction and sticking during cutting. Windmühlenmesser has worked hard to establish an extensive apprenticeship program at their workshop, preserving old techniques that have nearly disappeared from Solingen.

This is a stainless steel knife. It should be hand washed and towel dried. Dishwasher use will result in degraded edge and handle. Consistent long term exposure to moisture can lead to oxidation.

Use on a quality wooden cutting board will help the knife stay sharper for longer. Use on hard surfaces like plates and bamboo will reduce the edge life and can result in edge damage.

We recommend hand sharpening on whetstones. We have found that most western knives perform best with a medium finish starting around 1000 grit. Avoid pull through sharpeners and non-water cooled mechanized sharpening. Steel honing rods work well with this knife.
