The Messermeister Oliva Elite 8" Scalloped Offset Knife is extremely versatile. The offset feature of this knife provides maximum grip clearance between hand and cutting surface while providing optimal leverage and keeping knuckles out of harm's way. The scalloped blade cuts easily through crisp bread crusts without compressing the delicate interiors.
The German 1.4116 stainless carbon alloy blade resists stains and corrosion, exhibits toughness and durability, holds its edge retention, and is easy to re-sharpen to a razor-like edge.
This knife line is one-piece, hot-drop hammer forged, which produces the strongest blade from heel to tip. The blades are heat treated and cooled to achieve a Rockwell of 57-58.
The three-step, 15° Elite edge is hand stropped on a cloth wheel, creating the sharpest possible cutting surface on an edged tool.
The bolsterless heel simplifies all cutting, sharpening and honing tasks, making use of the entire blade from heel to tip.
Handcrafted in the historic cutlery capital of Solingen, Germany.
The Knife for Life™ guarantee provides a lifetime warranty against material and manufacturing defects.

This was a gift to my son. He now owns 3 knives and a your knife block. He only say’s positive brags about his knives.
STYLE & GRACE MEET PRECISION: Oliva Elite knives are a dream come true! I look for function and beauty--Messermeister scores 10 out 10 in both categories. I bought the 8" chef knife and 3.5" pairing knife combo, the 7" santoku, the 5" cheese and tomato knife, and the 8" scalloped offset knife. I love them all and will likely complete my personal set with a 6" utility knife in the near future.
I love the fact that this company is female empowered and their customer service ranks among the best! I received a response email in less than 10 minutes and there was nothing difficult or unpleasant about my inquiry. This is the kind of company I want to support and will recommend them to all my family and friends.
It replaces a stamped bread knife and I love the feel and performance of this forged one.
This knife is now my new favorite knife. It has lived up to my expectations and more! Not only does it cut through thick, crusty sourdough like it was butter, but it then turns around and gives me perfectly sliced tomatoes as thin or thick as I desire. You have created a beautiful, well designed knife.
We love our new bread knife! We love how ergonomic it is and how easily it cuts bread! Thank you!
What a great knife! The offset handle is very ergonomic. The blade is very efficient, and it has a wonderful balance. This knife helps me to work from elbow and upper arm; not from my wrist and hand. The handle could be bigger. I like to carve my knife handles to fit my hand. The flexibility vs. stiffness of this blade strikes an elegant balance.
