Ludwig Schiff’s cutlery is renowned by top chefs and food critics alike for being the epitome of balance — the perfect blend of performance and value. Though less well known, the knives boast the same quality and durability as their big brand counterparts at a quarter of the price. Manufactured in Soligen, Germany, traditionally trained craftsmen hand-forge and grind the blades using the finest grade of high-carbon stainless steel. Their process is one that has been followed for generations, paying homage to the age-old tradition of knife crafting. The result is an artifact that is highly durable and versatile. The quality can be felt immediately; it holds perfectly in your hand.
