Robert Herder - Windmühlenmesser Lignum 3


Out of stock

Based on the Japanese Santoku, meaning 3 virtues (meat, fish & veg) the Lignum 3 is a great all round kitchen knife. Less rounded in the belly than a chef knife the Lignum 3 is ideally suited to cooks who prefer the push pull rather than the rock chop method.

Best used for

– cutting on a chopping board
– filleting and carving
– chopping
– fish and meat
– fruit and vegetables

The utilisation of a traditional technique known as “dry-fine grinding”, ensures this knife is not only razor sharp but also thin behind the cutting edge, when coupled with an already thin and slightly concave blade (great for food release) this makes for a knife which performs to an exceptionally high standard.

Windmuhlenmesser have been making knives of exceptional quality since 1872, started by Robert Herder and still run by members of his family, the business, based in Solingen Germany, continues to employ traditional techniques to produce blades which are refreshingly thin and light for western knives.

A note on carbon steel Like many others we at Community Cutlery favour carbon over stainless steel for its ability to take a keener edge and hold it for longer, for this privilege we need to care for our carbon products with a little more consideration, particularly when it comes to washing. Once you’ve finished with your knife we recommend giving it a quick wash and a thorough dry, as if left wet it will start to rust, surprisingly quickly. If this does happen then take a dry scourer and lightly give it a rub, another rinse and a good dry, it should come off with relative ease. With use you will also notice a light change in the colour of the blade, this patina is natural, beautiful and to be cherished, it’s like yo knife developing its own fingerprint!

And for many reasons – Never put your knives in the dishwasher

Knives are only available to persons over 18 years of age. Due to the nature of our business ALL customers will be asked to prove their age at checkout.
