Blade: Carbon Steel

BIO: Wilhelm Hoppe and Co. a manufacturer of razor blades in Solingen which was in production from 1859 (although the trademark is 1881).
Later the brand was taken over by J.A. Henckels, so you can see many knives bearing “JA Henckels – William Hoppe” (and a few that only bear “William Hoppe” with its original stamp).
William Hoppe blades are reputed to be one of the best in the world.
