The Messermeister San Moritz Elité knife collection has 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 knife series 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.
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 San Moritz Elité 8” 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.
