agree  Fuad Yahya: This is far more commonly used in English than "cutlerer."
12 mins
  -> Indeed - 'cutlerer' doesn't even get into the OED (-:

agree  Sven Petersson: If it is about company or owner of company you are right. If it refers to craftsman you are not.
29 mins
  -> Agree with you 100 % - But I think a 'Hersteller' is more often a company than a person.

disagree  Mary Worby: Sorry, Sven, I beg to differ. I think cutlerer only ever refers to a person, not a company.

  -> Yes, I just wrote that in my "agree" to you!

disagree  xxxWGP: Mary is right
28 mins
  -> We need context to be sure, but none is available! Craftsman or business or business owner?
