The Messermeister San Moritz Elité knife collection have a completely molded, ergonomic and contemporary handle. The blade, bolster and tang are one-piece, hot-drop, hammer forged from a single billet of the finest German steel alloy. Featuring a unique personalization plate, this series of knives will be a statement piece in any kitchen. San Moritz Elité knives are handcrafted individually by 3rd and 4th generation cutlery artisans in Solingen, Germany.
Just as versatile as a traditional chef’s knife, a Santoku Knife is also known as a Japanese chef’s knife. The San Moritz Elité 5” Kullenschliff Santoku, has a thin taper for maximum precision when slicing vegetables, fish and meat. The kullens 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 blade and handle are compatible in width and weight, resulting in a well-balanced knife.
