Blacksmithing from Solingen

For optimal handling and cutting pleasure, it is important that a knife fits its owner not only visually, but also haptically and ergonomically. Our knife series offer the right handle for every hand, the right appearance for every eye and above all: the right blade for every item to be cut. To achieve this, we work with the highest quality and partly special materials that make every use a special experience.
