Care and handling of Mercer cutlery.
The performance of a knife can be diminished if it is not cared for properly.
Cutlery should never be washed in a dishwasher because intense heat and harsh detergents may cause the handle to deteriorate. Carefully wash by hand with soap and warm water, rinse and dry with a soft towel. Do not soak or submerge in water for long periods of time or use chlorine bleach because it can pit and discolor the blade. Avoid soaking in aluminum or stainless steel sinks because these metals may cause pitting on the blade.
Store in a cutlery block or sheath to preserve the cutting edges and prevent injuries.

Others in my employ have spent upwards of $200-$300 for other knives and I will state for the record that none of their blades stand up to this Mercer. That's not to say that some more expensive knives may have harder, heavier or fancier appearance or feel. This knife has out performed any other sushi knife I've ever held and is the envy of the kitchen (even after I tell them how little I spent on it). I COULD tell anybody that I spent hundreds of dollars on it, but I prefer to explain that you don't need to show off with a fat wallet, just make wise purchases and save your money.
Amazon sells hundreds of knives that are more expensive, so if you have more money than common sense, buy one of those. If you have pride in your work and don't want to cry if you drop a knife or have it stolen, this is the perfect purchase. I am going to buy an extra for myself and maybe a few extra for gifts.
It cuts cleanly, with no tearing of the fish or rolls.
The unfinished wood handle can be sealed with oil or polyurethane but it isn't necessary as it never touches the food.
Please note that it only has an edge on one side; sharpen it accordingly.
The way the edge is angled allows for a pretty natural feeling rocking cut but it still chops like a champ. The handle feels good in my hand and didn’t slip at all when wet. Looking forward to making this my go-to knife. I will update if something negative happens.
Coming from using a clever for everything, from a block set that cost around $45, this thing is a lot lighter but so much sharper.
- double bevel
- 58 HRC
- generic cheap Japanese handle +1 for authenticity will fill in gap betwean handle and tang eventually
- acceptable box to store knife in, if that's your cup of tea
- might not be the most comfertable for hours of use at a time but thats what more expensive knives are for
- balance is inbetween the logo on the blade and the black plastic ferrule
- the bevel looked a little asymmetrical like 30/70 but can be fixed with a sharpening stone and is not a big deal
will update after the knife gets put through some good work

Excellent quality knife. A chef at Osaka Japanese Steakhouse used one.
I wish the metal was 50% thicker.
