Ice Beech or “Eisbuche” is one of the most distinctive woods you will ever find. Created with sustainable practices from beech trees of the Black Forest, Ice Beech is created as the wood undergoes a natural process involving extended exposure to cold weather and moisture to produce its uniquely veined character and rich contrast.

This small stainless steel paring knife can handle any culinary work of peeling and chopping vegetables. The centre pointed tip is especially popular in Southern Germany and Switzerland. Its shape is perfectly formed for coring fruit such as apples or pears.

Best used for: fruit and vegetables, peeling and particularly great for coring, fish and meat, cutting with or without a chopping board.

In contrast to most of today's knives, Robert Herder still makes their knives in Solingen, Germany using traditional and laborious “thin grinding” techniques since 1872, where the blade is ground to be quite slender and very pointed towards the cutting edge. The result is remarkable sharpness and edge retention, and really is a pleasure to use.
