"Noblesse oblige" was once the unwritten law in the upper circles of the aristocracy. The circumstance described by this not only granted the nobility privileged rights, but also demanded moral duties due to their special social position. Even the powerful Habsburg dynasty had to grudgingly curtsy to protocol and etiquette. But every now and then, even the pretentious high nobility in Austria needed a rest from strenuous governmental activities and social obligations. One of the main residences of the kings in those days was in Wiener Neustadt in what is now the province of Lower Austria. In addition to the strategically favorable location, it was above all the relaxing and tranquil surroundings in which the rulers could recharge their batteries. Fortunate was he who still had a good blacksmith at court. Whether at the table or at the hip - princely rulers always appreciated a noble blade.
Today, the knifemaker Ingo Kobermeyer fervently continues the legacy of this esteemed guild. His domain includes two branches, one in Wiener Neustadt and the other in Mödling. His parents and wife are always at his side with help and advice. For more than 75 years, the master knife smithy Kobermeyer has been selling and professionally sharpening not only pocket knives but also chef's knives, driving knives, razors and scissors. Meanwhile, the showroom in the Wiener Neustadt branch exudes a touch of a museum, where historical swords and axes from different eras and continents cause amazement on faces.
It is not only the steel goods on offer that are of the highest quality, but also the professional expertise of the Kobermeyer family. Customers appreciate the warm atmosphere in the store, so that they always feel well advised and in good hands. And there is always time for a chat.
Ingo Kobermeyer's passion for knives was sparked at an early age. He received his first Swiss Army knife from his parents when he was only three years old. The Rambo action movie series continues to shape his enthusiasm for knives. Things are much less racy with his favorite Boker knife. "The Boker Tirpitz-Damast Wood is a superlative knife steeped in history with a Damascus steel blade that looks great to boot. The knife is very well received by my customers, not only as a collector's knife, but also for use." Furthermore, the "feudal Feitl" (Austrian folding knife) impresses with its flawless workmanship.
But the product behind the product is also coherent. The owner praises the impeccable business relationship with Boker, which has already existed for 50 years and is characterized by mutual respect. Especially in the current time full of challenges, a reliable partnership is all the more important.
By the way: a title of nobility is not at all necessary to get into the good graces of the knifemaker Kobermeyer. The imperial service is simply available for everyone.
