The Messermeister Meridian Elité knife collection defines tradition with a triple rivet, full-exposed tang handle. These knives are one-piece, hot-drop hammer forged from a single billet of the finest German stainless steel alloy and fitted with the most durable industrial strength, ergonomic handle in the world. Meridian Elité knives are handcrafted and polished one at a time using the same techniques that have been the hallmark of fine Solingen-made cutlery that have stood the test of time. Meridian Elité knives are the authentically superior, forged and triple-riveted knives manufactured in Solingen, Germany.
The Messermeister Meridian Elité 8" Kullenschliff Flexible Fillet Knife has a medium length, narrow and extremely flexible blade that cuts extremely close to a spine, bone or other hard surface. An excellent blade for the day-to-day demands of a commercial kitchen but useful for any fishing enthusiast. The alternating kullenschliffs (a.k.a. kullens, hollows or grantons) on each side of the knife reduce drag and prevent items from sticking to the blade.
