The FOREMAN knife collection creates a perfect balance in every sense – not only between functionality and aesthetics, but also between East Asian use of forms and the renowned production know-how of the German city of Solingen. The extraordinary design and ergonomic handles made from oiled nut wood perfectly balance the knives in your hand and allow for extremely comfortable handling. The hand-forged blades from stainless chromium molybdenum vanadium steel are ultra-sharp and have extremely long retention.
