Beautiful Knife - everything expected from a world class German company.

Perfectly balanced knife with a fine edge that feels sturdy yet easy to use.
As my first experience with premium grade kitchen knives, I chose Messermeister and I couldn’t be happier! These knives are sharp, well-balanced and beautifully made; absolute works of art! I’m thrilled that I finally have good quality cutlery that can be passed on to my kids. I can’t wait to add more pieces.
edge is kinda brittle, but feels good in the hand and is super sharp

Just as described in company literature. This is a sturdy and well balanced knife It holds a sharp edge and is a reliable tool.
My first Meridian Elite 8" was purchased in 2001. I used the same knife for almost 20 years in a very rough environment on a daily basis, in a galley at sea. It withstood the test of time. What a quality piece of cutlery!
This knife is the special forces of chef's knives! It delivers with precision and accuracy. No protein or vegetable is a match for this culinary weapon! Recommend everyone have this in their kitchen arsenal.
The best knife I own, great feel in hand, perfect balance and very very sharp. It is my new go to knife!
The weight in my hand and the blade are the best!
As stated before this is a high quality knife. Since my last review I was contacted directly by Messermeister’s VP and I’ve walked away completely satisfied with their customer service. Couldn’t be happier and I’m now sold on becoming a lifelong customer.
Knife is of great quality, though I’m disappointed with their customer service. That being said I’ll still purchase Messermeister items in the future. Just purchased a sharpening stone by Messermeister and I’m excited to used it. Knife lasted 5 months before having to sharpen. Only have been using their steel rod up to this point so I’m pretty impressed with how long it held it’s edge
Handle was uncomfortably small nice knife but room for improvement
Love this knife! Was suggested by my friend who is a Chef. Very sharp and perfect size for everyday kitchen use.
The weight and perfectly honed blade makes this the best chef’s knife that I have used in years. The service from the supplier was superb. I have no hesitation in recommending this knife.

I've owned the 10" Stealth version for a few years and used it every day. I love tools so I splurged on this model that is 10% heavier than the Stealth. The Stealth has sat in its edge guard ever since. I never worry about bending my new knife (although the Stealth is still straight). If I were doing more than just home cooking I might use the Stealth to lessen the stress on my chronic lower back injury.
Since I bought my first chef's knife in 1990, which was a 8" Wxxxxx Classic, I've always bought that brand. I like the weight and balance. I just tried out my new Meridian Elite. OMG! This feels even better and smoother. I'm a convert! I just wish I'd tried Messermeister a long time ago.
