A supplier to the vast majority of cooking academies, Mercer Cutlery offers the Genesis Collection of kitchen knives to provide professional quality to the home chef. Comfortable, durable, and efficient, Genesis knives feature fully forged, single-piece blades made from high-carbon, no-stain German steel.

With its arced double prong and tapered tips, this Genesis 6-inch carving fork helps cooks steady roasts, hams, and poultry while carving. It is also indispensable for transferring slices to a serving platter. A complement to the Genesis chef's and carving knives, the piece is made in Taiwan using European components and technology.

Style Name: 8-Inch Forged Chef's Knife
I have spent way, way more on other knives. I am not a professional chef but I do cook and use one or two knives at least every day. I have large hands. I believe the size and strength of the hand relative to the handle and blade weight mostly determines how a knife will balance in the hand and how much edge control and confidence it can be used with. Lower risks of cutting oneself go with proper fit and experience.

I have a few individual Wuesthof-Trident knives some of which cost over $200 per knife. My favorite other knife is a Wuesthof bread knife from the mid 1980s that is 11" long and I can't find anywhere else.

One day while poking around a kitchen supply store, I got sold on trying one of these Mercer 8" Chef's knives and a couple of paring knives. The kitchen supply salesman gushed about how they were the best knives for commercial and retail kitchens where you have higher end employees, they will be very happy, etc. Despite not wanting to be sold on a new knife, I was a sucker and paid the $35 for the knife.

From that point on, 6 years ago, I haven't gone back. This 8" Mercer "genesis" is perfect for my large hands. It hones really well to take a new edge and keeps the edge through a meal prep. They are super affordable, the total weight is appropriate, the balance is good. Solid place to put a thumb and control the knife well.

I really like this "genesis" rubberized handle, super good grip. Doesn't look cheap, doesn't feel cheap.

Best knife I've ever had and I've been using it daily for six years.

PS: My original of these did not come from Amazon. I have since purchased multiple Mercer Genensis products through amazon (through late 2013) and have had the same experience of quality. However, there's always the chance that a lower quality product will wind up being supplied. I've had that happen multiple times where a product is downgraded by a manufacturer after it gets a good name :\

Style Name: 7-Inch Forged Santoku Knife Verified Purchase
I've been looking for a santoku for some time and based on reviews and price, I decided to give this one a try. I really like it. It's extremely sharp and has held it's edge very well. It's got a great feel in the hand and weight. It gets the job done without being too heavy or causing hand fatigue. I would buy this again in a heartbeat.

Style Name: 7-Inch Forged Usuba Vegetable Cleaver
I am writing my second Mercer review, as I have found the knives to be a steal for their cost. This knife is great for the prep work I do in the kitchen. My brother in law is a chef and recently taught me the proper way to cut and prepare fruits and vegetables. Utilizing his techniques and this knife, I have increased my speed and the quality of the work I do. This knife cuts well, especially the tip. It has made the process of preparation much easier and smoother. I will continue to purchase these knives as I am really enjoying the way the cut and the feel in my hands. Very light and easy to handle.

Style Name: 3.5-Inch Forged Paring Knife Verified Purchase
I got the Mercer Genesis paring knife based on my good experience with the 8" chef's knife in the same line that I already have.

I'm not disappointed- this paring knife lives up to the reputation that the chef's knife has, and in some ways, stands out from the pack even more. The non-slip grip is really useful on a paring knife, and so is the relatively large grip. Makes for quite a bit of controllability and comfort.

My next kitchen knife purchase will likely be Mercer Genesis.

Style Name: 8-Inch Forged Chef's Knife
I am a proficient cook who also spends a lot of time cooking. I am particularly picking about my cutlery. I have been using a high-end brand for 20 years and in recent years have become disenchanted with the performance quality of their knives. Watching my husband saw through a roast in the kitchen was for me like hearing nails on a chalkboard. I decided to take the leap and try Mercer and my husband and I are not only pleased, but are frankly stunned by how this knife has delivered over and over again and at a far more affordable price than the "big" name brands. How could such a reasonably priced knife be so great? We don't really care how, we just know it is! We have tested it on everything from pork roast, to vegetables and even a tomato and mozzarella for caprese. It has consistently sliced through without any effort and clean as a whistle. We will not go back and moving forward we plan to purchase all of our cutlery exclusively from Mercer. We strongly recommend this knife and think it makes the perfect gift because it carries the perfect gift price range and is an exceptional performer.

Style Name: 3.5-Inch Forged Paring Knife Verified Purchase
Very nice solid blade, comfortable weight with a nicely textured handle for grip. I bought this to replace a nice Henckel paring knife that had been broken by a collision between a pugnacious pumpkin and an exuberant child. I don't see such misfortune happening with this more solid knife! It feels and performs better than the Henckel we had.

Style Name: 7-Inch Forged Santoku Knife Verified Purchase
I hardly touch my chef's knife anymore. I cook every day and this knife is my favorite. I bought it several months ago and it is very easy to sharpen and keeps a razor edge. Nice balance, well constructed, as good as knives costing twice what I paid, $43.

Style Name: 7-Inch Forged Santoku Knife Verified Purchase
This is an excellent knife for a sous-chef. It comes perfectly sharp, able to handle any job. If you know how to keep the blade edge properly, this knife will last you for a VERY long time. PLEASE don't use a knife sharpener and expect it to keep your blade perfect. If you don't know how to use a steel, then don't try. You need to learn to use a steel so watch about 3 videos on youtube and practice with a knife you don't care about. Make sure you are really comfortable before you pick this knife up to straighten it. 99% of people should not attempt to "sharpen" which is different from straightening. It is best to leave sharpening to the pros PERIOD.

How To Use A Knife Sharpening Steel

Using a knife steel, also called a sharpening steel or honing steel, helps smooth out that roughness, leaving a nice, straight edge.

With your left hand (or your right hand if you're left-handed), hold the sharpening steel point-down, with its tip resting firmly on a dry cutting board -- as if it were a large nail you were about to hammer into the board.
With your other hand, hold the knife crossways against the steel with the back of the blade (the part nearest the handle) touching the steel. You're going to be pulling the knife backward, toward you, so you want to start with most of the blade in front of the steel.
Tilt the knife so that its cutting edge meets the shaft of the sharpening steel at a 22½-degree angle. Don't have a protractor handy? That's OK! Remember that 90 degrees is a right angle, and 45 degrees is half of that. So 22½ degrees is just half of that. You can pretty much eyeball it.
Now, maintaining this 22½-degree angle, gently pull the blade toward you while simultaneously gliding it downward along the shaft of the steel.
