Messermeister has been making knives in the German tradition for over 30 years, and remains one of the only companies to finish their blades using the ages-old hot-drop, hand-hammered technique. Each knife is high-quality, heritage, and handmade.
These knives combine a stunning, smooth American Walnut handle with a German-made stainless steel alloy blade. Walnut is favored for its strength and stamina, and it ain’t too shabby looking, either! The rich, deep brown has a natural flared pattern, each handle unique from the next. Messermeister makes the blades using the traditional hot-drop method, similar to what you’d imagine when you think of a colonial blacksmith: they forge the blade in a very hot oven, and then hand-hammer it to extreme sharpness. With vintage looks and heirloom quality, these knives will be ones you treasure forever.
