The Messermeister Meridian Elite Hollow Edge Chef's Knife is the most versatile knife in the kitchen and the most used blade style by professional chefs. The broad bladed knife features a spine that gradually tapers to the cambered, cutting edge and creates a pointed tip. Also features a bolster in front of the handle which gradually tapers to the tip. Because of this geometry, this is the one knife that should be well balanced with weight distributed equally between the handle and the blade. The hollow edges on each side of the blade reduce drag and prevents food from sticking to the blade. Designed to peel, trim, slice, dice, chop, mince, vegetables, fillet fish, and cut meat. Each part of the knife is designed to perform a different task. Messermeister Meridian Elite knives are one-piece, hot-drop hammer forged from a single billet of the finest German stainless steel alloy and outfitted with the most durable industrial strength handle in the world. Messermeister Meridian Elite knives are handcrafted one at a time using the same techniques that have been the hallmark of fine Solingen made cutlery for hundreds of years. Messermeister Meridian Elite knives are simply the best original forged knives made in Germany.
