Hohenmoorer Toast Set
After nearly two decades of knife-making and work as a cutler, Ulrich Hennicke began designing and producing his own line of hand-forged blades in the town of Asendorf, Germany. Hohenmoorer, or "High Moor," describes the region the knives are produced in. The profile of each Hohenmoorer knife is distinctive, contemporary, and restrained. There is nothing superfluous added without a nod to functionality. The touch of temper color is a fingerprint of the maker, but also serves the purpose of protecting the transition area between blade and tang.
The YV is Ulrich's interpretation of a Vespermesser, or snack knife. Use it for spreading butter or soft cheese. The blade is hand-forged by Ulrich and his small team. The YV's handle shape and polished brass bolster are subtle indications that it's a modern kitchen tool, and the octagonal (eight-sided) handle is comfortable for both left and right-handed users. The use of smoked oak in the handle makes the knife light in the hand, and gives it a handmade quality. No two are exactly the same.
The small, hard Frühstücksbrettchen is perfect surface for slicing bread, and then buttering and serving toast. It's also small and light enough to bundle in a wrapping cloth and bring on a picnic. Each one is hand made in the Hohenmoorer and has a unique grain pattern.
Care: Wipe the knife’s blade with a clean cloth or wash it gently after each use, avoiding harsh detergents or scrubbers. Never use the board or knife in a dish washer. The wood handle is durable—that said, we recommend hand washing your knife, drying it, and storing it somewhere it doesn't come into contact with other objects or utensils.
