For Giesser an entrepreneurial virtue.
Since our founding in 1776, we have sharpened our knife blades almost exclusively with natural materials - water and stone.
Almost 250 years later, we are not only one of the world's leading manufacturers of quality knives and accessories, but also a pioneer in sustainability, recycling, and self-sufficiency. At our plant in Winnenden-Hertmannsweiler, Germany, we use no fossil fuels and rely entirely on renewable energy sources, such as solar panels that harness the power of the sun. We use 100% green electricity and heat all our premises with the waste heat from our machines. To stand still is to go backwards! So, we are constantly developing new ways of thinking about the future, to make our products as sustainable as possible and leave the smallest carbon footprint possible.
