Features of Robert Herder K series

The type of steel and the traditional 'Dünnschliff' method are what makes these knives worth the care you have to take with them. The sharpness and sharpness retention are at a higher level than that of most competitors. The sharpening method of the knives in the K-series is called the 'Kesselschen Walkschliff'. This is a manual sharpening method. It is labor intensive but the results are worth it.

Carbon-steel blades

The knives with carbon steel have a high hardness of 60 HRC. The rust-resistant knives in the K-series, get very close to the carbon steel knives in terms of hardness and sharpness retention. All knives in the K-series have a sleek handle which is attached to the steel with rivets. The finish is extremely smooth. The transition between handle and steel can actually not be felt. These knives exude craftmanship and dedication.
