The Messermeister Meridian Elité 3 Piece Trio Set consists of an 8″ Chef’s Knife (E/3686-8), 6″ Utility Knife (E/3688-6), and 3.5″ Paring Knife (E/3691-3.1/2). These are the three most utilized knives in the kitchen! This set is the perfect addition to your cutlery collection.
As a gift, this set will bring joy to any cook, whether novice or expert, who values fine knives that last a lifetime. Forged from single pieces of high-carbon stainless steel, Messermeister Elite knives are hand sharpened in a three-step process; have shortened bolsters so blades are sharp from tip to heel and a cook’s forefinger rests comfortably on them; and feature classic three-rivet, full-tang, seamless polymer handles. The set consists of an 8-inch chef’s knife with an extra-wide blade for smooth rocking action, a 6-inch utility knife, and a 3-1/2-inch paring knife. Made in Germany, the set comes in a padded gift box. –Fred Brack
The German 1.4116 high-carbon, stainless alloy blade resists stains and corrosion, exhibits toughness and durability, holds its edge retention, and is easy to re-sharpen to a razor-like edge.
This knife line is one-piece, hot-drop hammer forged, which produces the strongest blade from heel to tip. The blades are heat treated and cooled to achieve a Rockwell of 57-58.
The three-step, 15 degree “Elite” edge is hand stropped on a cloth wheel, creating the sharpest possible cutting surface on an edged tool.
The bolsterless heel simplifies all cutting, sharpening & honing tasks, making use of the entire blade from heel to tip.
The Knife for Life guarantee provides a lifetime warranty against material and manufacturing defects.
