This series is named directly after Güde's founding patriarch, Karl Güde. These blades are forged from specially alloyed cutlery steel and feature plum wood grip scales and a classic form. This is exactly how Güde knives looked when they left our factory more than 100 years ago – and ours today still cut just as fabulously!
The plum is cultivated predominantly in Central Europe and belongs to the family of the rose plants.
The wood has a very high density. Moreover, it is very hard and can easily be turned and polished. The wood is of a dark reddish-brown color and the core of the wood often has brown-red or violet-red grains and flames.
