Product Description

Size: 8 Inch

Product Description

The Messermeister San Moritz 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

This chef's knife has 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. The 8-inch blade suits most cooks. The knife is from Messermeister's first-rate San Moritz line. 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 the blade. Molded from a polymer that won't crack or warp, the handle is tough and contains a nearly full tang. The plate on the handle's end for engraving initials bespeaks this German manufacturer's reputation as a supplier to professional chefs. To keep the blade sharp, it's best to hand wash this knife in soapy water. --Fred Brack

It also feels very substantial, solid, and well made.
Jonathan Lofgren
Ok, yeah I understand that if you're new to the idea of buying a really good knife for the kitchen, this probably seems really pricey.
G. Chapman
This and a pairing knife is all you need to cook like a master-chef!

Having been a Meat Cutter in commercial/wholesale/supermarket settings many years ago, I had acquired an appreciation of quality utensils. In the intervening 50+ years I have used/owned many good and bad such knives and as far as I am concerned this is one of the best high-end products I have ever used.

Ok so I'm not a professional chef or anything, but I do enjoy cooking and do it a lot. Although I'm a "lay-cook" I recognize the value of proper high quality tools for the job. I did a lot of research before purchasing this particular knife, and while I wouldn't say its the best for everyone in every cooking situation of course, all things considered (steel, edge retention, length, price, etc.) it represents an outstanding knife by any standard that any cook (even professional ones) would be proud to use.

I leave it to the reader to research the nitty gritty details and technical specifications if you're so inclined; I'll just keep this review short, covering only what I consider highlights of the knife.

1. Length. When researching kitchen knives, I came across An Edge in the Kitchen: The Ultimate Guide to Kitchen Knives -- How to Buy Them, Keep Them Razor Sharp, and Use Them Like a Pro...great book by the way...which advised considering the 9-inch length due to the "just right" feel and extra versatility. I took the advice and am glad I did. The length is perfect. It allows me to safely and effectively slice "bigger" jobs like halving Acorn Squash yet its not too bulky to mince garlic. You'd be amazed and the difference that one inch makes, whether above the 8-inch or below the 10-inch...the 8 is arguably too small for some things and the 10 just feels enormous and somewhat unwieldy in certain situations.

2. Ergonomics and "feel". This is obviously a classic knife design, and now I know why. It just works. It inspires confidence with the comfort that goes along with using it.

I LOVE this knife. I researched a lot of knives before getting this and I'm extremely happy with it. It's remarkably sharp new and hold an edge really well. The balance is great and I like the grip. It also feels very substantial, solid, and well made.
