3.5" stainless steel paring knife with walnut wood handle.
The K1 Office knife has a spear/ drop-point tip; a classic paring knife, perfect for peeling or any small prep work. It's made of a stainless steel blade with 0.7% carbon and hardened to 60 HRC, blue glazed and hand polished with hand-shaped walnut wood handle. These knives were used widely among the everyday cook, and would commonly be used in the Salle D'Office or the pantry prep room. Windmuehlenmesser is known for their office knives!
Robert Herder Windmuehlenmesser knives are hand-made 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 Windmuehlenmesser have worked hard to establish an apprentice program at their workshop, where they’ve preserved old techniques that have nearly disappeared from Solingen.
