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 chef’s knife is the workhorse in every kitchen. You will gravitate to this knife and will find yourself using it for 90% of all your cutting tasks. The Messermeister Meridian Elité 9” Chef’s Knife has an industrial strength polyoxymethylene or “POM” handle. The hand forged blade has been ground down to a thin profile to create a razor sharp edge. 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. You can chop, slice, dice and mince your way through extended cutting tasks without fatigue.
