The Black Forest and its cold, clear water for the Teinach mineral springs

The Black Forest, one of the most beautiful and diverse regions in Germany, is known for its dense forests, picturesque villages and, above all, its crystal-clear water. This water, which bubbles up from numerous springs, streams and rivers, is not only essential for life, but also gives the region its unmistakable charm. The purity of the water, fed by the natural springs of the Black Forest, contributes significantly to the high quality of life and the closeness to nature of the people in this region. Whether as drinking water, for the spas or in traditional Black Forest cuisine – the clear water of the Black Forest is a valuable commodity that reflects the beauty and purity of this unique landscape.


The Night of the Stars Stuttgart 2022 and getting to know the mineral springs Teinach crew

The Night of the Stars Stuttgart, a high-calibre gathering of the best top chefs from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. A who’s who of pot and pan virtuosos. We had developed a special knife design for Rolf Straubinger from Burg Staufeneck. We were particularly pleased that Straubinger then invited us to the Night of the Stars. Rolf Straubinger has an excellent network in the culinary scene and has been the organiser of this top-class industry get-together with the Allgemeine Hotel- und Gaststättenzeitung as caterer since the beginning.

It goes without saying that Burg Staufeneck will present itself on this evening with catering that is second to none. There are few events with more professionals in the room than the Night of the Stars. From stars alias star chefs from 1 to 3 stars, everything that has been honoured by the most important gourmet guides Michelin, Gusto and Gault & Millau was represented.

If exquisite food and excellent sparkling flavours need to be accompanied by the right water, Teinacher mineral water is not far away. For us at TYPEMYKNIFE® as an exhibitor at the Night of the Stars Stuttgart 2022, the refreshing water came at just the right time. We personally also enjoyed the gourmet lemonades and they got us through the night. As a committed sponsor,

Mineral springs Teinach is very well represented in the catering and hotel industry with its mineral waters. The mineral water and lemonade specialist.

Development of the knife design. New techniques in the laser process for the mineral springs Teinach knife

Simply explained, it is a combination of two laser techniques, engraving and hardening.

Engraving uses a laser beam to remove material from the surface of the steel. The removal takes place in the 100th of a millimeter range. In laser marking, the steel surface is oxidized using a laser, giving it its characteristic black color.

For the Teinach knife motif, we were inspired by the silhouette of a forest, which we engraved in 3 different laser processes – brightness levels – to create a color perspective and a 3D effect. The knife changes color depending on the angle of view and incidence of light.

We have placed the logo of the Teinach mineral spring with its sycamore leaf over the forest.

Heritage and responsibility: the history of mineral springsTeinach

The history of the Teinach mineral springs and their history begins in the early Middle Ages. Clean drinking water was something very special in the Middle Ages. After all, hygienic conditions and a lack of sewage systems were responsible for several epidemics across Europe with considerable human losses.

Anyone who has studied the history of urban development knows that clean running water from pipes was by no means a matter of course. Either groundwater was drawn from wells or fresh water was obtained from wells in the urban area. Water as we know it today, freshly prepared and purified from the tap, was not available from the tap 100 years ago. T

he first documented mention of the springs for Teinach mineral water dates back to 1300 as sour spring

Clear, clean water is essential as a building block of our lives

Clean, healthy mineral water is and remains the most important foodstuff.

In the 19th century, Robert Koch discovered the bacterial contamination of all surfaces with germs. The beginning of the hygiene revolution and the prevention of many diseases.

The fact that contaminated drinking water was a major cause of disease and still is today in remote areas of the world makes it all the more important to respect clean water. Until the mid-1970s, Europe was not exactly a place of environmentally conscious living either.

Since then, much has improved thanks to changes and the expansion of many sewage treatment plants and the sensitized behaviour of consumers and environmentalists.

Some rivers and lakes have regained drinking water quality, which benefits the groundwater – and the water cycle.

What is a spring worth if it is not the best quality drinking water with minerals bubbling out of the ground?

The water quality of the groundwater is of great importance.
