The Park Plaza knife collection is Messermeister’s stamped version of the triple-rivet, full exposed tang, German knife series. This collection is manufactured with one-piece, die-cut stamped blades using high quality German stainless steel alloy. The stamped blades do not have a bolster and are lighter than forged knives. Park Plaza knives are trimmed, straightened and hardened then attached to industrial quality handles that are buffed to a seamless fit and finish. Manufactured in the historical City of Blades, Solingen, Germany by cutlery artisans, these are a great value.
Just as versatile as a traditional chef’s knife, a Santoku Knife is also known as a Japanese chef’s knife. The Park Plaza 7” Kullenschliff Santoku, has a thin taper for maximum precision when slicing vegetables, fish and meat. The alternating kullenschliffs (a.k.a. kullens, hollows or grantons) which are the semi-circular hollows on either side of the blade, reduce adhesion and ease the cutting and separation of meats, cheese and vegetables. The stamped blade and handle are compatible in width and weight, resulting in a well-balanced knife.
