Avanta knives were developed for one of the leading culinary schools in North America. Designed with uncompromising attention to details, Avanta is produced by Messermeister, a top brand in premium kitchen cutlery for more than two generations. Our high quality blades are crafted from German X50 stainless steel for knives that are sharp, rust resistant and easy to maintain. Solid bolsters and full tang construction give the knives great balance and heft. Avanta knives are made with rounded, triple-rivet Pakkawood handles for comfort and durability. Each knife is backed by lifetime warranty against factory defects.
