The Robert Herder Lierenaar 015635001 is a simple and classic pocket knife, made in Solingen, Germany. Robert Herder is known for its fine kitchen knives. But this Lierenaar pocket knife cuts just as well. The design is based on a classic pocket knife was used in the city of Lier in Belgium. Hence: Lieraar.
You open the pocket knife with two hands, and an early incarnation of a backlock keeps it neatly locked. The blade is made from classic carbon steel, just like Robert Herder's kitchen knives. With a thin grind, but not stainless. As a result, patina develops over time. After use, clean and dry the blade and add a few drops of oil every now and then. The same applies to the handle made from untreated beech wood.
Because the blade has a thin edge, the Lierenaar is amazing to use. The large handle offers a comfortable grip even for larger hands. Everything shows that this knife is made keeping the past in mind. The model, the materials and the finish are simple. A real piece of modern history.
