The story of Messermeister, "messer" meaning knife and "meister" meaning master, begins with a man and his passion for premium German cutlery. Bernd Dressler was born in Germany and immigrated with his family to Australia. In 1967, he sought after bigger dreams and began his career as a salesperson in cutlery for a large German knife company. In 1981, Bernd decided to start his own venture in cutlery with the help of his wife, Debbie Dressler. His passion for premium cutlery led him to design and manufacture vintage, handcrafted, forged German cutlery. Bernd’s innovations are the first bolsterless heel, the first truly cambered chef’s knife, and the sharpest polished edge angle. By 1995 Bernd’s brother, Bruen, introduced Messermeister to the Australian market and from there the brand began to expand internationally.
