Robert Herder - Windmühlenmesser "K5" Chef

  • Sold out



The K5 is a classic high performance chef knife, based on the Gyuto, the Japanese take on a Western chef knife, confusing we know!

Best used for

– cutting on a chopping board

– filleting and carving

– chopping

– fish and meat

Inspired by the double bevel knives of Japan, the K Series are high performance knives, designed for professional use but equally useful to the discerning home cook.

The utilisation of a traditional technique known as “dry-fine grinding”, ensures these knives are not only razor sharp but also thin behind the cutting edge, when coupled with an already thin and slightly concave blade (great for food release) this makes for a knife which performs to an exceptionally high standard.

We really like this series , they’re comfortable, well made, attractive, hold a mean edge and they sharpen up a treat.



Windmuhlenmesser have been making knives of exceptional quality since 1872, started by Robert Herder and still run by members of his family, the business, based in Solingen Germany, continues to employ traditional techniques to produce blades which are refreshingly thin and light for western knives.
