Product Description

The Messermeister Meridian Elite 8-inch Chef's Knife, also known as a Cook's Knife or French Knife, is the most versatile knife in the kitchen and thus the most used blade style by professional chefs. The blade is shaped so that it can peel, trim, slice, dice, chop, mince, vegetables, fillet fish, and cut meat. Each part of the knife is designed to perform a different task. It is the flagship of cutlery.

Amazon.com

With a broad blade (at 2 inches, it's a bit wider than many manufacturers' blades) and a curved edge for rocking through a chopping task, this 8-inch chef's knife suits most cooks. One of Messermeister's top-of-the-line Elite knives, which are distinguished from the company's first-rate San Moritz knives by a three-step hand sharpening process blades undergo and classic three-rivet, full-tang, seamless polymer handles, the knife is forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel. The blade has a shortened bolster so it's sharp from tip to heel and a cook's forefinger rests comfortably on it. Made in Germany, the knife comes in a padded gift box. To keep the blade sharp, it's best to hand wash this knife in soapy water. --Fred Brack

This chefs knife has served as a replacement for my henckels for five years now. Five years of hard work in numerous high volume kitchens. The spine is smoothed over to prevent serious cooks calus, and since the bolster does not extend all the way down to the edge its easy to sharpen the whole length of the blade. No bowing, no grinding. Also the blade is ground at a steeper angle than most german knives resulting in a sharper (altough more fragile) edge. I find the balance perfect for me if youre looking for something more blade heavy try japanese style knives, more handle heavy get a Dick or a henckels cermax. Also stick with a fine cut steel for this knife.

I never owned a forged kitchen knife before. These are my first. After researching all the forged knives on my list, I finally decided on the Messermeister Merdian Elite. This model has the Classic handle. These knives are awesome. I've been using them daily for the last 2 months and they still haven't seen a steel. Super sharp right out of the box. Like German quality? What more knife for your money? Then you can't go wrong with these.

...and this is a great knife. The balance is perfect for my hand and the angle of the edge and its keenness make kitchen work safe and fast. Highly recommended, but use a good steel before and after every use and protect that edge! You can use a knife block, hang it from a magnet, or use a commercial edge protector, or make your own from some cardboard and tape. I highly recommend this knife for people who love to cook because it just adds to the joy.

I bought this knife as a gift because I have used one just like it for years and its my favorite kitchen implement. Its very sturdy and holds its edge well despite all my abuse :-) This brand isn't one of the better known ones but it really should be as its quality is excellent!

Many serious cooks think that Wusthof Trident or Henckels make the finest German knives. I thought that too until i was turned on to the Messermeister brand at my local restaurant supply house.These knives are very similar to Wusthof Trident, but from my experience they are definitely better. They feel sharper when new, and seem to hold on to an edge longer. Since I use mine many times per day, I buy a new Chef's knife every few years, so give messermeister a try, and see if you don't agree that it's the best widely available German Knife.

I dearly love this knife!

I started with the inexpensive but highly rated Victorinox Fibrox, but ended up being scared of using the knife because I just couldn't keep it stable despite holding it properly.

I tried this knife in a cooking class (KitchenOnFire) and fell in love immediately. This knife is very nicely balanced, with perfect heft, and it feels great in my hand. I'm not at all afraid of using it, and it performs flawlessly. It's really a joy to use.

I started with a Wüsthof 4" mini-chef's knife until I could afford the real thing. I still use that knife, but the handle cracked (no, of course I never put it in the dishwasher). I noticed the handle of the Messermeister isn't so sharp at the edges; it feels more "organic" if that makes any sense.

It really is a beautiful, thoughtfully designed knife. I'm so happy with this.

Awesome knife, excellent quality. Also, its huge, which makes taking care of large jobs a snap. Got it as a gift for someone, but had a tough time handing it over. Highly recomended.
