The Messermeister Meridian Elite Hollow Edge Nakiri Vegetable Knife combines the classic features of a European Chef's Knife with the wide blade style preferred by chefs from the Far East. The chopping cleaver style blade is a full 2.5-inches wide and 7-inches long with a blunt spatula tip and a slight rocking camber. The hollow edges on each side of the blade reduce drag and prevents food from sticking to the blade. Used primarily to chop, dice, mince and slice vegetables, fruit, meat and any other item that needs to be reduced quickly to cooking size. With a long full size handle and blade, this knife is built to handle a heavy workload in the kitchen. 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.
