Hammer Stahl American Clad cookware...

I've never heard of Hammer Stahl, until minutes ago in a YouTube ad. I did a search on DC and didn't find anything other than one of their knives on sale.

Anyone use their products, or know about them?

I didn't find the video very informative about the products.

A quick search for unbiased reviews yielded little other than the handle on a knife was too small.

I was looking at Hammer Stahl because their knives resemble my knives, which are Gunter Wilhelms so I thought they might be the same company, but Gunter Wilhelm knives are made in Germany while the Hammer Stahl knives are made in the USA

Wow, those two brands of knives do look amazingly alike.

I didn't recognize the name Hammer Stahl either, so I did the Google thing. The link to their website starts with "Hammer Stahl | American Clad Cookware & German Steel Cutlery" I wouldn't be surprised if they contracted cutlery manufacturing with Gunter Wilhelm.

A 10 piece set of "7 ply" SS is around $600.

I'd think about buying it if it really is made in America. With anything but Chinese steel.

(most?all?) of the cookware is USA made, but the knives are not German made.

it's almost word for word ye olde Gunter Wilhelm spiel
Cutlery Details
"The process starts in Germany, where X50CrMoV15 stainless steel is fully forged and tempered for ideal strength and durability. The forged steel is then shipped to our state-of-the-art factory in Asia, where the detailed process of applying the Pakkawood handles is meticulously done by hand. After the razor sharp cutting edge is measured for precision by laser, the knife is polished, inspected and packaged. The finished product is an impeccable combination of beauty and functional design."

looks like Gunter Wilhelm has a new handle design and licenses/supplies the old stuff to New Era aka Hammer Stahl.

with further plot thickeners

I get the impression there is a long and colorful history between the principals . . .
