The Oliva Elité knife collection by Messermeister boasts an exquisite natural, Italian olive wood handle attached to a hammer forged blade. The highly figured, beautiful golden-brown handle provides a secure ergonomic grip with an unsurpassed balance. The Elité knife collections feature a blade, bolster and tang that are one-piece, hot-drop hammer forged from a single billet of the finest German steel alloy. Oliva Elité knives are handcrafted one at a time, using the same techniques that have been the hallmark of fine German made cutlery for hundreds of years. Oliva Elité knives are of heirloom quality and simply one of the best original forged wood handled knives.
The Messermeister Oliva Elité 5" Cheese and Tomato Knife is the perfect addition to any cheese plate. This knife is hand-crafted from the finest German stainless steel. The serrated wavy edge is suitable for cutting soft, medium or hard cheeses, tomatoes, and any soft skinned fruit or vegetable. The fork tip is designed to move pieces from the cutting board to a plate. Marry this wonderful blade to a beautiful, golden, highly figured piece of natural olive wood and this knife exemplifies the best of vintage artisanal cutting instruments from yesteryear.
