Rhineland Cutlery was founded in 1995 as Vital Nutrition Cookware. Their product line consisted of 7-ply surgical steel waterless cookware manufactured in the U.S.A. In 2006 they introduced a premium line of cutlery called Hammerstahl. In 2009 they sold the Hammerstahl line to New Era Inc., and initiated a research and development program to create the ultimate line of cutlery. After consulting with more than 100 professional chefs worldwide, their design team has created the most balanced, ergonomic and beautiful knife ever seen. We are proud to introduce their newest line of premium cutlery, Rhineland.
