Making Carl Mertens Cutlery

Handmade in Solingen, Germany

Solingen, Germany is known for their high quality cutlery. In fact, Solingen is known as the steel capital of the world and the "city of blades", and is where all Carl Mertens knives are made. In order to mark a product with the name Solingen, all key manufacturing stages must have been processed and finished within Solingen. The product must also meet strict quality standards in order to be entitled to use the "Made in Solingen" mark. This means that a knife that was completely crafted and assembled in Solingen can not say "Made in Solingen" unless it meets these required quality standards.

Use and Care

Cleaning: Carl Mertens Knives are not dishwasher safe and must be hand washed and dried thoroughly after every use.

Handle Care: Carl Mertens Knives are made using oiled European walnut wood. Regular oiling keeps the handle in optimal condition throughout its lifetime.

Honing and Sharpening: Regular honing is necessary to maintain a sharp cutting edge on Carl Mertens Knives. Weekly honing realigns the blade and maintains a sharp edge for longer. For sharpening, we recommend using a whetstone or sharpening steel when sharpening becomes necessary.

Cutting Surfaces: Only use cutting boards made of hinoki, wooden, bamboo, or quality polyethylene to keep Carl Mertens blades in prime condition. Avoid using cutting boards such as china, marble, granite, porcelain, stainless countertops, and glass. These surfaces could cause harm the blade.
