The Guild distinguishes between ordinary members and honorary members Foerdermitgliedern.

• Foerdermitglieder - here, there are knife collectors,
Messerhaendler and all who want to support the association's purpose
• Honorary members - people who will have made around the hand-made knives or the DMG deserves to be appointed by the General Assembly can be honorary members.
Before a knife maker will be included in the guild, he can appoint 3 citizens from the ranks of regular members. It requires 5 knives in-house production will be presented to a host committee for review.
