Paul Herder had the idea of putting a small label on the handle of every knife, describing the special advantages of the knife. Later, this label was reinforced with a diagonal red stripe for more attention. This label was so successful that it was registered as a trademark in 1910.
The appearance was also transferred to the packaging. Paul introduced a single pack, a white paper bag that also featured the Windmill logo, the lettering and the red diagonal stripe. Twelve of the knives were wrapped in paper in these “Düten” and then packed in an outer carton. The success was resounding and helped our Windmühlenmesser to become more well known.
