Dresden Stollen Knife
A perfect gift idea!
The Dresden Stollen Knife is the showpiece of Royal Saxon cake knives and is handcrafted in sterling silver, with the support of major Dresden museums after a historical reference from the Court Silver Room of the Dresden Palace of 1730th.
The high-quality and very cutting stainless steel blade is forged from one piece, carefully ground, lavishly polished and artfully decorated by hand, before it is inserted into the baroque handle made of sterling silver, a handle with a 90g hard silver coating or an ivory-coloured plastic handle.
The Dresden Stollen Knife is ideal for dividing and manicured presenting the delicious Dresden Stollen ® and can also be used for effortless cutting and stylish serving fine bakery and confectionery products.
What has led to the emergence of the Stollen knife? Anno 1730 gave Augustus the Strong, Elector of Saxony and King of Poland, as part of the “Zeithainer Lustlager” a legendary festival, to which more than 20,000 guests were invited. This glamorous Illustration courtly splendor went as “Crone all Magnificent and glory” of the monarch in history and is still the epitome of baroque life.
The highlight of the secular revelry the baker master Zacharias presented a 1.8-tonne giant Stollen. This imposing brick work had been prepared by around 100 people in one week’s work before it was baked in a specially built by the great architect Pöppelmann oven for six hours. Eight horses pulled it then in a solemn convoy at the king’s table. The Stollen knife with which the giant Stollen was cut was about 1.6 meters long and has been specially designed and made for this festival. This knife can be seen on a historical model and formed the basis for today’s Dresdner Stollen knife.
