Cherry wood pocket breakfast knife is slightly smaller than a conventional breakfast knife making it perfect for a picnic, foraging in a apple grove or gorgeous on a set table. The wide blade makes it easy to spread butter and other spreads on the bread. Due to the thinly ground blade with its sharp edge, even hard butter can be spread! The blade is made of stainless steel, the handle is cherry wood- finished with aluminium rivets.
Like our other Breakfast Knives, this knife has been manufactured with its distinctly shaped blade without alteration for over 140 years. The broad blade, highly fine glazed by hand with great care. But like all good knives, never put this in the dishwasher and a few other points; do not use on hard surfaces, do not lever, turning movements or rocking, to ensure the fine blade is kept in fantastic shape.
With sharpening, you only need 2-3 passes on a stone, not the usual 10 or more on a cheaper knife.
The knives have effortless cutting ability of Japanese knives, but our German Knives have all the features we love in a blade: an ergonomic, well-balanced handles complements a Japanese-inspired blade without the thick bolster and wide profile that make a Western knife feel unwieldy.
The blades are ground with a specialised oscillating jig that creates a convex surface, the most durable grind, and finished with a micro-bevel to improve the high-carbon steel's already impressive edge longevity. These methods have been developed over generations by Windmuhlenmesser in Solingen, which is immediately apparent by the masterful fit and finish.
Comes with a glassine insert with information and care instructions included.
Still being made by hand since 1872.
