The production of the finest possible handcrafted, forged cutlery is and always has been the driving philosophy of our company. For four generations the Gude family has neither compromised on nor wavered from this credo. Today Gude is proud to continue the centuries old tradition of quality knifemaking for which the town of Solingen is justly world famous. Gude kitchen knives are produced in the center of the German knives world: Solingen. Meanwhile, the fourth generation is at the helm of the Gude-factory. For more than a century (since 1910!) these German quality kitchen knives are made.

A lot of work is still done by hand. More than thirty steps in the production process require the eye of one of Gudes master knife makers. It was a conscious decision to choose hand work over mass production. The result is an exclusive kitchen knife that guarantees years of pleasant use in the professional or home kitchen. It's for good reason that Gude won many prizes with his kitchen knives. 

Slit pieces are cut from the 8-meter-long bar (chrome, vanadium, molybdenum). The slits are heated up to about 1,050 °C. Then it is die-forged with 3-4 hammer blows (weight approx. 2.5 tons). This creates the forging. To soften the forging piece, it is annealed at 800 °C.

Each knife in the Alpha Olive Series begins as a single piece of specially alloyed Chrome-Vanadium-Moly cutlery steel, beginning with hand forging and continuing through more than forty separate steps in the production process before completion.

The grip scales are crafted from very hard 100-200 year old olive wood which resists moisture and exhibits a beautiful grain giving each knife a special elegance all its own. Ice hardened stainless steel; hand sharpened – not for the dishwasher!
