All further information can be found on the voucher card or on our Grinding service.
500 year old olive wood meets Solingen blacksmithing - the Güde bread knife olive wood
The handmade bread knife comes from the Güde Alpha Olive knife series. The combination of 500 year old olive wood and traditional blacksmithing make this bread knife so unique. The Güde company uses approx. 500 year old olive wood from sustainable wood cultivation for the handle scales. The slow growth of the olive tree gives the wood its unique grain and makes it more resistant. Olive wood handle scales are antibacterial and are comfortable to hold. Due to the different grains of the olive wood, each knife is unique. With a blade length of 32 cm, the bread knife cuts all types of bread of all sizes. Crusty breads can also be cut into even slices with this knife.
The knife including the handle has a total length of 45 cm each. The blade is also continuously connected to the tang. With a weight of 380g it lies securely and easily in the hand and helps the user to achieve a clean result. The bread knife has the typical serrated edge on one side. This preserves the cutting ability of the knife and facilitates the clean cutting work. The hand-forged blade is made from one piece, ice-hardened rust-free and sharpened by hand.
The Güde bread knife olive wood has a blade hardness of 56 HRC. Accordingly, a simple regrinding is possible without the material suffering as a result. The mixture of chrome-vanadium-molybdenum is mainly used by the Güde company for the production of high-quality knives. This means that the blade has an optimal level of corrosion resistance, i.e. it is rust-free. The blade steel is ice-hardened after processing and the knife remains as sharp as it was when it was first used, even after repeated use.
