What is a Solingen Knife?
Solingen knives are knives that were made in the city of Solingen. Because the city is world-famous for its many knife manufacturers. This is also how the city got the nickname “Blade City”.
It is no coincidence, however, that the city of Solingen has become the epitome of the art of cutlery making.
It is above all the geographical location that has made Solingen what it is today. Countless watercourses, ore deposits and the proximity to Cologne as an important trading centre are the most important factors in this regard.
Solingen knives are known above all for their outstanding cutting properties. The cutting durability of a knife describes the period of time over which a knife retains its sharpness.
Traditional and elaborate techniques make the difference between a conventional knife and a Solingen knife.
