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. It should be washed by hand for best results and carries Mercer's one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard

Care and handling of Genesis cutlery.
The performance of a knife can be diminished if 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.

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 :\
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.
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.Read more ›
