Sternsteiger Achilles Messer
The uniquely unibody shaped handle fits perfectly into your hand and provides the best possible grip even if your hands or the knife itself are wet. The most prominent unique feature of Achilles is the centre opening, which is also important for the grip, but it serves a dual purpose. It helps to balance out the pressure while cutting or chopping by making room for your thumb or index finger.
Statement of the jury
This kitchen knife is notable for its striking design, which is fully consistent with its function. This does not, however, prevent the product from being an iconic creation of rare beauty and unmistakable character.
