Semi-roboticized? It looked like a scene from Star Wars to me!
Very cool though. Amazing that they can make enough sales to justify designing, making, buying and maintaining that kind of stuff.
Maybe they will sell enough to teach the machines to make a proper knife.
Thanks for sharing this.
Time to look for another line of work.
Very interesting, thanks for the link.
Now a few cynical thoughts just because it's Wednesday: (1) All they need now is a robot to grind off that bolster (2) That's probably the last time most of those blades will be sharp enough to cut paper (3) why don't they program the robots to round the sharp spines on many of the Zwillings? and (4) They missed showing the last step of a clueless 20-year-old selling the knife at Williams-Sonoma to an unwitting home cook. No number of robots can cure that weak link.
Interesting, thanks for sharing!
On another note... this kinda puts a proverbial fly in the ointment for all those who insist that stamped knives can never be as good as a thick, heavy forged knife like my Henckels (or Wusthof)! When working at a kitchen store I heard this so many times.
Did anyone get the "special formula steel" bit??
Here's a similar thing from Wüsthof, a 7:30 film in English from their homepage.
Oh noze! Z-Germanz have build das robot army!!!
They even have an animatronic Dave chained to a sharpening wheel.
