Windmill pairing knife. "Blaugepließtet" (bluish finish grinding).
Carbon steel blade ground down thin and bluish finish ground with elongated handle made of steamed apple tree wood which has been fine polished and finally oiled, as all knife handles are treated at Herder in Solingen, Germany.

"Blaugepließtet" (bluish finish grinding).
"Pließten", as it is called in Solingen, Germany, is the process of smoothening the grinding marks, also refered to as finish grinding. The most complex level of the method of "Pließten" is the "Blaupließten" (bluish finish grinding). Here the steel is ground in various rounds, using a finer granulation (from 180 up to 320) in each round. So the blade becomes even finer and less susceptible to corrosion. You can see that a blade is "blaugepließtelt" when it looks slightly bluish held against the light.

Not rustproof – but really sharp. Carbon steel knife.
Carbon steel is the traditional material for knife blades. It is not rustproof, but if it has a finely granulated microstructure it can be hardened to a very high degree and made extremely sharp. In this context: The higher the carbon level, the higher the degree to which the knife can be hardened. Thanks to the underly (the material) and the high holding of cutting edges due to the material-specific self-sharpening effect, the knives have a very high cutting efficiency. The blade wears evenly during the course of time so that the acute cutting angle remains the same. As time progresses, carbon steel blades acquire a dark patina. This doesn't in any way negatively influence the quality, but rather gives them improved protection against corrosion.

Contact with cheese can cause stains on the blade. This is due to lactic acid mainly in soft cheese reacting with the carbon steel and is completely harmless.
