General Company Information

"To be successful in the market place we have to be innovative today, innovative in regard to design and function.

For that reason Richartz in Solingen develops striking new and attractive pocket knives and innovative functions. Consumers around the world are fully convinced of the convenient Picnic system (knife and fork combined in a knife!) and the unique Box knife with a four-piece mini screwdriver set and room for small everyday items."


"Preserve tradition, create innovations.

We at RICHARTZ feel committed to tradition and know how significant innovative ideas are. This philosophy is mirrored in the quality, function and aestheticism of our products.

As one of the leading European manufacturers of pocket knives, located in the center of the German cutlery industry in Solingen, RICHARTZ looks back on 100 years of expertise and experience. We have placed the highest demands on our products and evolved a brand that is able to captivate national and international experts when important design awards are being presented."

Around 2014 (?) Richartz dropped their well-known line of picnic/hobo knives and transferred other production from Germany to China. The models made in China were branded with the RICARDO (designed by Richartz) name. The Ricardo knives and multitools do not have the Solingen stamp or whale logo on the main blade because they are not made with Solingen steel in Germany.
There are Ricardo and Richartz knives and multitools that look exactly the same. However Richartz models are made in Solingen, Germany and have the RICHARTZ stamp and the whale logo, Ricardo models are made in China and don't have the Solingen stamp on the blade or the whale logo.
