Old German style or 'buckels' are not just an average table knife, but the ultimate sandwich knife. 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 can be relied on for spreading like a champ- 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.
