No Electricity Needed. Graef Hand Slicer

The all-metal body of this hand slicer stands on a tubular steel frame equipped with strong rubber suction pads. The knife, made in Solingen, Germany, with its big serrated blade cuts bread, cold cuts and cheese or suitable fruit and vegetables to any width from wafer-thin to thumb-size; the exact width can be set by a regulator knob on the side of the machine, and its rather elevated construction means that there's room to put a dish or tray underneath to catch the slices as they fall. Learn more about this hand slicer's history.

Comfortable, weather-proof and durable. Men’s Heschung Ankle Boots

Men’s Heschung High Cut Calf Leather and Cotton Shoe

A basket made of wire-mesh. The Galfan Leaf Composter

Galfan Wire Leaf Composter

In 20 years you can compost a lot of autumn foliage: that’s how long the no-rust guarantee lasts for the wire mesh. The basket is made of 3-mm-thick galfan wire (also used for gabions). The open wire mesh allows the air to circulate through the mass of leaves as it gets hotter, quickly reducing it to a mulch that you can use as it is, or - mixed with cut grass, bone meal and chopped twigs - to make leaf compost. Easy to put up and take apart; the front can be lowered to get out the compost. And the wire mesh cube with the leaves inside looks tidy, too.

Short and stout. Enamel Tea Kettle

Tea Kettle Made of Enamel

It works like a real kettle – first you boil water in it directly on the stove, then you slip in the strainer with the tea leaves, like a tea pot. The kettle is cast in one piece, with the spout attached afterwards. When we first offered it with a black enameled surface the kettle was manufactured by the Geithainer Emaillierwerk in Saxony. The manufacturing facility and brand name have long since changed hands, but the kettle is still produced in Germany.
