Knife Collections

Oliva Elite

Our Flagship Knife Collection

Oliva Elite knife collection by Messermeister boasts an exquisite natural, Mediterranean olive wood handle in the popular straight tang, forged knife line series. The highly figured, beautiful golden-brown handle provides a secure ergonomic pinch grip with an unsurpassed balance. The blade, bolster and tang are one piece, hot-drop hammer forged from a single billet of the finest German 1.4116 steel alloy and heat treated and cooled to achieve a Rockwell of 57-58. The 15° Elite edge is hand stropped on a cloth wheel, creating the sharpest possible cutting surface on an edged tool. Oliva Elite knives are of heirloom quality and one of the best original forged wood handle knives. Handcrafted in Solingen, Germany.


Our Newest Collection

Serious cooks demand Carbon steel for serious sharpness. Much harder and tougher than stainless alloys, Carbon steel holds an edge longer and can be easily restored. To make the most of the carbon steel, we have ground the blade with an extra-wide double bevel and a finished edge angle of 15º per side. This complicated blade grind yields razor like performance without sacrificing strength. For added measure, we’ve reinforced the tip, then “crowned” spine and return of the blade until no rough edges were left behind. The surface of our Carbon blades is refined with a ceramic stonewash finish to improve stain resistance and give a smoother cutting experience. Each blade shape is precision ground with unique geometry to enhance its intended use.



The Meridian Elite knife collection is our classic triple-rivet, full-exposed tang series, handcrafted and polished one at a time using Solingen techniques and one-piece hot-drop hammer forged from a single billet of German 1.4116 stainless steel alloy, with a three-step, 15° Elite edge hand stropped on a cloth wheel, making them one of the best original forged, triple-rivet knives available.
