With the purchase of this knife, we give you a voucher card for professional re-sharpening free of charge. Even the best knives lose their sharpness over time, despite optimal use and storage. If the process has progressed too far, sharpening with a sharpening steel is no longer sufficient. In addition, with our sharpening voucher we give you the opportunity to let your knife shine in new splendor. This means that your knife will be sharpened at the Wasserkraft Manufaktur in Solingen Wipperkotten. You can find all further information on the voucher card and on ours Grinding service.
Eickhorn has been manufacturing combat, rescue and bayonet knives for the authorities for over 150 years. These knives quickly gained a reputation for being particularly functional and robust. As the popularity continued to grow, Eickhorn decided to manufacture its knives for the civilian market and to inspire them with innovative knife designs.
The secret of the special Eickhorn quality lies in the combination of the most modern manufacturing technology and old craftsmanship. Because Eickhorn chose the well-known damask smith Markus Balbach for the production of the special damask knives. After all, he is one of the best of his guild in Europe. Each of his damask blades is a true masterpiece and borders on perfection.
Many Solingen knife manufacturers have now relocated their production and their location to the Middle East. Eickhorn has kept out of this trend and remains true to his homeland, the city of blades. 150 years of common history and a common pursuit of quality as well as perfection of the cutlery connects and obliges.
