    2. Quality German made knives

      Hello everyone,

      I'm currently living in Germany and in these few years I've discovered by chance a small but super sharp fruit knife from Solingen (I think the brand was from Rör). I was so amazed by the sharpness that now I want to buy a chef's knife for myself (budget: up to 60 or 70) and a knife for my dad (budget: up to 30 or 40) as a Christmas gift.

      I've already searched the web for great German knife brands, and it seems these are the ones:

      If someone is looking into this post looking for a budget (but still good) German knife brand, it seems that Rör is that brand.

      But since, I’m looking for advice with this post, I’m no expert on the topic, if there are bad knife makers on this list or great knife makers missing, please tell me, and I'll remove/add them from/to my post. :)

      The knives list below are all that fit the budget I've mentioned. Hohenmoorer and Windmühlen (and this brand only has wooden handles, which I don't like), are just too expensive, so only Friedr. Dick and Wüsthof are left inside my budget, but I could include two more expensive ones from Burgvogel and Friedr. Dick, if it is really, really worth it.


      For myself:


      For my Dad:


      Last questions:

      1. Would you recommend a 20, 21 or a 23 cm blade size? Some knives have different variations of these blade sizes.
      2. Should I care about the material of the knife? I saw someone saying that it should be made of carbon steel (I think?).
      3. Should I already buy a knife sharpener from one of the brands above?
      4. Should I buy one of those knife guard/protector/sleeve to store it on a drawer or something like that?

      That is all, and I want to say thank you in advance for all the replies 🙂
