Founded in 1879 and located in the Töngesgasse near Frankfurt's Zeil since the 1950s, the specialty shop under the management of qualified knifemaker Andrea Müller stands for tradition, expertise and dedication: "The passion for knives has always been with me. I can't exactly quantify when or by which event this passion was kindled".
Most retailers started out in the traditional way with a local store and over time added an online shop to it. For us it was the other way round: Paramitos started in 2013 as a pure online shop, in early 2019 we opened a store in the centre of Oranienburg. There my team and I now have the opportunity to advise customers personally and according to their needs.
Today, the Demmer family business can justifiably be regarded as a true institution of trade in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. It can look back on a long tradition. The company founder Hans Demmer Senior opened his first retail store in Mainz in 1928. Since then, Demmer has set the highest standards in selection and expertise for knives, free weapons and all outdoor accessories.
Brad Zinker is a knifemaker from Florida and a member of the traditional American Knifemakers Guild. Most of his designs are filigree, his preference for narrow blades and reduced handles is easy to recognize. The weight of his designs therefore always plays an important role, the extraordinary knives should never burden or hinder their wearers.
Lucas Burnley from Massachusetts is a full-time knifemaker and designer. His unmistakable knives combine clear, modern lines with tactical ones. His designs are playful and refined at the same time and often contain subtle neo-Japanese elements. It is particularly important to him that his knives are both useful and aesthetic.
In almost every product text there are knife specific technical terms which are not necessarily known
to the non-specialist. For this reason we have compiled a small guide here.
The battleship of the German Navy, which sank off the Norwegian coast in 1944, served not only as eponym but also as parts supplier for the legendary Boker model Tirpitz-Damascus.
Since 1869, the famous knives with the world-famous Boker tree brand have been manufactured by hand in Solingen, the city of blades. It fills us with great pride when we look back on our continuous history, on the eventful history through which our company has gone over the course of 15 decades. And we also see this as a great obligation to remain true to our philosophy.
