A classic-style 3" paring knife with hand-ground, stainless, sheep's foot-shaped blade. Handled with a steamed cherry wood, hand-shaped and sanded.
Robert Herder Windmuhlenmesser knives are handmade in Solingen, Germany utilizing old hand-work techniques. The 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, and the slight convexity makes for reduced friction and sticking during cutting. Robert Herder Windmuhlenmesser have worked hard to establish an apprentice program at their workshop to preserve old techniques that nearly disappeared from Solingen.
