Old German style or 'buckels' are not just an average table knife, but the ultimate sandwich, paring, spreading knife, etc.- the list goes on. They are equally useful cutting cheese, salami, to be used in-hand as a paring knife, or as an elegant table knife that cuts sharp! Yeow! The round tip is crucial for spreading- a must for butter and other delectable schmears.

Robert Herder Windmühlenmesser knives are made in Solingen, Germany, and still utilize old hand-work techniques. Their fine, hand-ground blades are extremely light and ground thin- they offer a great cutting feel that is not possible with chunky, mechanized-ground blades. Paired with a slight convexity, it makes for reduced friction and sticking during cutting.

Windmühlenmesser has worked hard to establish an extensive apprenticeship program at their workshop. There, craftspeople work to preserve 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.
