Welcome! We are always glad to our friends!
The history of Kopfinder™ is very old and, at the same time, very young.
My great-grandfather, a German by birth, was a blacksmith. People respectfully called
him "Der Kopf" ("Head") for his excellent craftsmanship.
The whole subsequent history of my family is still connected with the manufacture of
And it so happened that my wife's father was a wonderful Chef. His photo with the first
cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin is carefully kept in the family archive.
This period was the beginning of close cooperation between blacksmiths and cooks.
Our production is located in the Chinese capital of knives - Yangjiang.
I immediately answer your question "Why?".
The proximity of supplies of Japanese steel and accessories for the handle, possibility
of rapid re-equipment of the technological park and training specialists at leading
factories in Japan allow us to produce excellent knives from the most expensive steel at
the most inexpensive prices.
The world is changing rapidly, and we try to keep up with it.
But the solid foundation laid by my family, remains unchanged: “Der Kopf” ist Qualität –
"Head" means the highest quality.
"I am grateful to all generations of cooks, who have
worked and continue to work with Kopfinder knives, fortheir wise advice, born of years of practical experience
and all the new friends who joined us now!!"
