German knife manufacturer Giesser is a leading name where quality knives are concerned. From Michelin Chefs to Sunday Cooks, all those treasure the gourmet experience select Giesser chef knives for their kitchens.
Johannes Giesser, a son of a humble cutler, started the Giesser legacy back in 1776 by innovating a line of the finest knives and cutlery that Europe had ever seen. Fast forwarding to 1920, Giesser expanded its reach by exporting to customers in Austria and Denmark.
Giesser knives are crafted out of the finest materials, such as Chromium-molybdenum steel that results in the sharpest, rust-resistant blades. The brand only uses materials that pass food safety and hygiene requirements by health authorities. Each blade undergoes a vigorous vacuum-tempering process to increase the blade’s durability. Giesser Knives are designed for heavy-duty use in the food service industry.

Wavy Edge (W) - This is a knife that features regularly grinded waves that allow the tool to cut through hard crusts without slipping or sliding.
Scalloped Edge (WWL) - A knife that is scalloped provides for smooth cuts like meat or tougher vegetables.

Giesser’s Primeline boning knives are fashioned with soft, ergonomic handles made of slip-proof plastic and the hardest steel to ensure precision cutting in the kitchen. The 6” Granton Curved Boning Knife was designed for use by butchers, meat cutters and packers. Each knife is individually stamped with serial numbers for swift identification of the knife’s owner. The edge works seamlessly for boning larger animals such as hogs or deers in the commercial kitchen.
