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.
This unique Messermeister Oliva Elité 8" Scalloped Offset Knife is extremely versatile. The offset feature of this knife provides maximum grip clearance between hand and cutting surface. An offset handle provides optimal leverage and keeps knuckles out of harm's way. The scalloped blade cuts easily through crisp bread crusts without compressing the delicate interiors. Each knife handle in the Oliva Elité knife line is unique and made from beautiful Italian olive wood. No two handles are the identical, making these knives truly boutique and one-of-a-kind.
