Story

We've reissued our wildly popular German cutlery set as the Black German Kitchen Knives, with specs that prioritize technical performance and low maintenance over traditional aesthetics. These knives are designed by master Solingen knifemakers to be the ideal blend of Western ergonomics and Japanese precision and are finished with impressively resilient black POM thermoplastic scales. These scales are abrasion-resistant and environmentally stable, holding steady against the dynamic temperature and moisture of a lively kitchen environment, and requiring far less upkeep than wood scales. The blades are ground from high-carbon stainless steel with a specialized oscillating jig that creates a convex surface and the most durable grind. They’re finished with a microbevel and blue glaze to improve the steel's already impressive edge longevity. The set includes a healthy selection of Japanese-inspired profiles, with origins in the Gyuoto and Santoku, ranging from two sizes of chef's knives to technique-specific utility knives for advanced wielders. Offering stunning blade performance and flawless ergonomics, our Black German Kitchen Knives enhances any kitchen with a workhorse, worry-free cutlery set.

Care
  • Nothing holds an edge better, or is easier to sharpen, than carbon steel. The trade-off for that quality and ease is that you must wipe your knives completely dry after use and preferably apply a very light coat of oil. Although these knives are made with utmost craftsmanship and pride, they will rust if not cared for.
  • Knives of high hardness offer superior slicing ability, but will not hold up to heavy pounding. Save the cleaving tasks for your beater knife.
  • No knife of any quality should be put through the dishwasher. Blades will dull and risk chipping; wooden handles will quickly deteriorate and can crack.
