Developed in collaboration with top gastronomes, it fascinates with its elegant language of form and selected materials. It is forged and completed entirely by hand to reflect a special appreciation for both the materials used and the manufacturing tradition. The blade of the knife is made of durable surgical steel and can also be forged for knife lovers specifically in torsion damask steel with over 1,000 layers. This steak cutlery impresses with its expressive language of form. Made of local, stabilised ash tree or walnut wood, the handle forms a virtually seamless line with the blade, perfect for the use in gastronomy. Visually enticing and pleasing to the touch, this cutlery lies comfortably and perfectly balanced in the hand. The consciously flowing transition from the handle to the blade enables outstandingly ergonomic cutting and thanks to the optimised design the cut surface is contactless.

The cutlery embodies a subtle and sophisticated design that has emerged as an exclusive result that fascinates with its special appeal and materiality.
