Wieland, der Schmied
Bowies, fighters, hunting knives, half-integrals, neckknives, campknives, daggers, users...
My name is Gerhard Wieland. I was born in Karlsruhe (Germany) in 1950. Having finished my A-levels I decided to become a professional goldsmith. A short-termed career which was followed by a job as a dental technician. I practised this profession for quite some time until mid-year of 2008. In this year I finally made up my mind to turn my hobby into a full-time occupation.
I work with traditional non-stainless steels and exclusively with natural materials i.e. indigenous and exotic hardwoods, stag horn and if need be animal bone.
In my portfolio you will find 3 categories of knives: “Classics” (Elegant knives for daily use), “Showcase” (Precious pieces for the highest standards), and “Bowies & fighters” (Big toys for big boys).
In the “Hammering” section Wieland, der Schmied publishes every now and then posts around the forging.
My knifemaking enthusiasm had kept on laying dormant until the year 2004 when it all of a sudden surfaced in its most archaic manner – blacksmithing.- Gerhard Wieland
Every time I forge a red-heated bar of steel into a blade with simple hand-tools, I really feel rewarded with a thrilling back-to-the-basics experience.- Gerhard Wieland
My logo is supposed to express my love for the Scandinavian north, to my dear family and going boating. All that under the sun with a highly symbolic cross – for I’m a Christian man.- Gerhard Wieland
Each and every blade is forged, hardened and finished with minimal use of machinery and mechanical contraptions.- Gerhard Wieland
