The medium pointed blade shape is preferred in southern Germany, as well as in Switzerland.
It proves to be particularly suitable for cutting in the hand or on a board. Best use is peeling and coring of fruits and vegetables. Cutting fish and meat is accomplished just as well by the finely skinned blade.
With the "Solingen thin grind", the grind is set high up, allowing the blade to be slender and very pointed. The result is a special sharpness as well as a great edge retention. This type of grind is hardly ever used anymore, even in Solingen. In a blade length of up to 9 cm, such a knife may also be called an "office knife".
