Qualities of a mill knife

The knives are made according to traditional methods and are sharpened in the German city of Solingen. The knives have a thin grind (called a '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.
