Mill knife blade
The knives are made according to traditional methods and are sharpened in the German city of Solingen. The knives have a thin grind (Dünschliff) and a blue polished finish. It requires a lot of manual labour to get the desired result, but it is worth it.
The razor-sharp features are partially the result of the classic Solinger Dünnschliff. The carbon steel that is used for the blade, is the other determining factor. As a result the mill knife is sharper than almost any other peeling knife. Because the steel contains a lot of carbon the blade is very hard, but not stainless. This means that the knife changes colour relatively quickly. How you need to maintain your mill knife to enjoy it the longest?
