The Olav universal knife is a real all-rounder at your service. With its narrow but long and perfectly balanced blade, the universal knife can handle any dish. Cut up crispy salmon fillets or chop fine herbs - there are no limits to what you can do with this handy utility knife. Especially when it comes to vegetables and fruit with hard skins, the Olav universal knife is the perfect choice.

The Olav universal knife is 100% made in Germany and is hand-ground to extreme sharpness in Solingen at the traditional 'Clauberg' company. Olav's powder metallurgical high-tech steel is known for its all-rounder steel. Thanks to the fantastic properties of Elmax steel, your knife remains stainless, is acid-resistant, and can be worked to extreme sharpness by diamond cutting due to its fine-grained carbide distribution.

Craftsmanship from Solingen

Based on the design of the Olav Chef knife, we have developed the Olav universal knife with the traditional company Clauberg. Clauberg is one of the oldest sharpening families in Solingen and employs only the most experienced sharpening masters.

They grind the powder-metallurgical steel by hand to this thin, extreme sharpness.
