The Hechtsäbels belongs to the series "Unique items from tradition", which includes a small assortment of knives with special history, shape and traditional craftsmanship. The Hechtsäbels blade, also called Säbels or in a narrower form Hechtspitze, existed in the program around 1910 and was mostly used as a roasting tranching knife or as an all-purpose knife. The width of the blade gives the knife a good cutting action, and the narrow point allows fine cutting of herbs or small vegetables, as well as de-skinning and skinning meat. The slightly curved handle also comes from the era around 1910 and was found on models such as spine-tipped meat knives or even preparation knives.
Like many classic Windmühlen knives, the Hechtsäbels is made of high-quality non-stainless carbon steel.
