Windmühlenmesser 8" 'Boscher' Harvest Knife - Carbon - Copper Beech
|Height at Heel|
|Cutting Edge Length||"|
The Boscher is a very old knife style from the Netherlands going back to the middle ages. It could be found in table knives to larger multipurpose knives. This one is called a harvesting knife as it was used for that purpose but it is a great multipurpose knife from bread to proteins to veggies.
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.
Carbon steel requires care to keep from rusting; it should be dried immediately after use and never left soaking or wet. Carbon steel gets sharper and holds its edge longer than stainless.
