Description

A special chef's knife, original design from 1922. The very thin blade is made of carbon steel (not stainless) and because of that, it cuts like a warm knife through butter!

Background information
Cutting, for a large part, has to do with bridging resistance. The thicker a knife is, the more resistance it encounters while cutting. The material that is being cut, is being pressed to the sides in the process. If the knife is thick, it gets pressed further to the side and the knife gets sort of stuck.
Making a thin blade requires, besides craftmanship, steel which is extremely strong. This is the reason that the knife is made of carbon steel (not stainless) instead of stainless steel, which is much weaker.
If you rinse the knife immediately after use and dry it very well, you can enjoy these knives for a lifetime.

Due to the special properties of the steel, this knife is not qualified for our laser engravement service. The result does not meet our requirements.
Robert Herder knives are largely hand-made, which may cause for a longer delivery time. This can also mean that the delivery time on our website can be subject to change. When the knife is ‘in stock’ we have received it from the factory and can ship it out to you.

This is MY knife. No-one else gets to use it. It gets stored away from all our other knives.

There are two key points to separate it from most other knives:-
Its blade is carbon steel, and
The width of the blade is narrow.

These are positives for me but some folk may not agree. Carbon steel blunts easily (don't use a glass or very hard chopping board) but will readily take an edge from a steel - 2 or 3 strokes each side before each use is fine. Carbon steel also discolours quickly - enjoy how it looks when it comes out of the box because it won't stay that way for long! Acidic foods, e.g. lemons, cause a reaction on the steel. You should clead and dry the blade immediately or it will discolour (and flavour) the next thing it cuts. As long as you know these things in advance it's not a problem. The thin blade just makes cutting things easier as there's less energy/force required to separate the food on each side of the blade. Also, for delicate items, I find I get a cleaner cut than if using a wide blade.

I've used an 8-inch chef's knife for the majority of my food prep for 20+ years. Mostly a Sabatier carbon steel one that my kids have damaged, but also an expensive Kasumi. I'd go for a carbon steel one anytime. The Robert Herder one is a little heavier than the Sabatier but has a better build quality and is very comfortable to use.

Expensive. But IMO the right tool for the job.

For nearly twenty years, I am in possession of a Zwilling J. Henckels knife. A good knife, but I wanted something different. I must say that this knife Robert Shepherd is much better. It is a beautiful knife, really vlijm-, razor sharp and it is very nice in the hand.
Immediately after the first use begins to discolor the blade; does rusting now stand once. You can not use leave the knife should be washed immediately after use and dry. But, little effort, especially if you opposes the cutting convenience. Be careful though, because I accidentally bumped my finger lightly against the cut, which immediately yielded a large gash 26 As sharp as that.
Remarkable is the price. In some shops I saw the same knife lying, albeit considerably more expensive. One shop even charged AC 65

- more. For that money you can buy a knife. The service at Kato was excellent, as usual.

D. d. 25-07-2013 at 16 00pm. Calls for security or Shepherd "1920"-knife was actually in stock, and whether the "real" could be the next day. Already delivered Was to be answered by a very friendly lady who looked for certainty in the system and assured me it would be. Delivered the next day Also proved once again to be the last so I hung up quickly and paid via I-deal. This afternoon my knife, beautifully packaged and sharper than sharp. Worth repeating this.

Sincerely,

The blade is factory as sharp as you wish to participate. The handle is, apart from a small thing, also processed very nice. The knife fits perfectly in your hand and just fun while working. The final care of the carbon steel makes it as a matter of course, because you can not just put away carelessly so noble a tool.

This knife I bought along with the Lignum santoku, very nice set so. In contrast to the Santoku this is a heavier blade and of course larger. Become like the santoku neatly packaged and delivered is beautiful in the oil. If you take it out of the box you can just enjoy the gleaming blade, after a day's work it is already discolored, I like it. The blade is nicely polished and remains well with sharp turn a few times before use. It was just waiting for the knife was delivered, but this knife is definitely worth the wait!

What a beautiful knife. Too good to use, so I just ordered two. One for use, the other fits nicely with my collection of Robert Herder knives. Perfect knife that nice in the hand light. Is also nicely balanced. By way of grinding you can do with cut very thin slices. Comes reasonably sharp in a beautiful box. With whetstones finishing and then slings, she makes them razor sharp. Shepherd knives that I go all discolored. Use After use, wash off immediately and dry. A few drops of oil on the blade rubbing because of corrosion is advisable
Well, then the price.
This is in my opinion a bit on the high side. I think that is the way of all the Herder knives.
But remain special and very good knives that you buy for the rest of your life.
If you are considering to buy a knife in this price range then is it still a must that you will not regret.

This knife feels great in your hand it's not as light weight makes it a good ballans and precision cutting.
This knife is sharp as expected, he quickly faded black and blotchy.

I also liked to have this knife looks old and looks old quickly. Knife

My Sabatier I always do it in the dishwasher that you should absolutely not do this knife has a wooden handle. So wash and dry immediately handle little rub with oil supplied.
