Windmillknife Vegetable Knife Mittelspitz, Red Beech, Carbon, Fine-glazed, 185mm
Blades with the "Mittelspitz" shape (center point) are particularly popular in Germany and Switzerland.
It is ideal for de-coring fruits.
The "glazing" describes a machining process by which a very homogeneous surface is achieved on the blade.
The difference to simpler knives - which appear unclean and coarse due to visible grind marks - is that the blade offers considerably less attack points and therefore a higher corrosion protection.
Solingen Dry-Fine Grinding:
In contrast to most of today's knives, windmill knives are still manufactured with the principle of the "Solingen dry-fine grinding".
The blade angle is set high above, whereby the blade runs slantingly and pointedly towards the cutting edge.
The result is particularly evident in the high sharpness and edge retention.
This traditional type of cut is rarely practiced even in Solingen, but the high appreciation of Solinger knives all over the world is justified.
Equipped with an elongated, traditionally oval handle, this knife lies wonderfully in the hand.
