Old German style or 'buckels' are not just an average table knife, but the ultimate sandwich knife. They are equally useful cutting cheese or salami or in hand as a paring knife, as well as an elegant table knife that cuts sharp! The round tip can go into jars and is good for spreading.
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.
