Full description

This kitchen knife of the K-series by Robert Herder has a blade of carbon steel. This steel has a high proportion of carbon of at least 1%. The blade is manually sharpened with a variation of the traditional ' Dünnschliff ', namely the ' Kesselschen Walkschliff '. This is a special sharpening technique to attain a convex edge. The result is a knife with extreme sharpness and an above average sharpness conservation.

The ergonomics are excellent. The handle with rounded shapes is slim and graceful and very comfortable to hold. The K-series is designed for cooking enthusiasts who want to use their kitchen knives intensively.

It is important to note that carbon steel not stainless or rust resistant. That means it should be treated with care and certainly not be cleaned in the dishwasher. Dry it immediately after use and maybe even oil the steel a bit, then you can count on many years of pleasant use . Sometimes the steel may show some discolorations. This is a feature of the type of steel and completely normal. It is absolutely not a flaw of the knife.


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.

Rusts! The blade is not from stainless steel and will stain the moment you use it on anything acidic, including citrus, beets, etc. Which of course means you can’t even return the blasted thing for a refund Shockingly poor quality!!

Hi, I'm sorry you are disappointed with your purchase, but the product description does clearly state that the blade is made out of carbon steel:

'It is important to note that carbon steel not stainless or rust resistant. That means it should be treated with care and certainly not be cleaned in the dishwasher. Dry it immediately after use and maybe even oil the steel a bit, then you can count on many years of pleasant use . Sometimes the steel may show some discolorations. This is a feature of the type of steel and completely normal. It is absolutely not a flaw of the knife.'

The carbon steel allows Robert Herder to grind the blade really thin making it an excellent slicer. It also aids in the ease of sharpening. People appreciate these assets of Robert Herder knives for over 100 years.
