Nice knife. Feels good in hand, definitely a workhorse.
Beautiful chef ‘s knife. Works as well as it looks! I’m a Messermeister fan from here on out.
The knife is amazing, I got my own a few years back and this was a gift for my niece and she loved it! I need another one as my wife is constantly finding where I hide so she can use it…I needed this order rushed to make it on time for my niece, and I was personally attended to by Samantha in operations to make sure my niece got this gift before Christmas. Amazing. Thank you all.
Love it. Stays sharp and has the right amount of flex
Quickly becoming my go to, do everything knife. It came sharp out of the box and has a nice profile to it for rock cutting or push cutting. The olive wood handle is also very attractive and has a good feel to it.
Compared to my old knife, the messermeister is a world of difference. The speed and confidence with which I can cut vegetables and meat is incredible! I love how the knife feels very solid and the weight is slightly balanced towards the handle, which has lovely wood.
As always, great products and great service!!
I purchased this knife to replace a older WMF knife that i have had since 1999 and I must say was very happy with it. This knife performs just as good as my current WMF knifes and my Solicut. I would definitely purchase other knifes from Messermeister of the Olivia Elite
I purchased this knife because of the good reviews and the attractive wood handle. I consider myself an amatuer chef and own several Western and Japenese knives. I took a chance and this one really surprised me as it seemed to find its way into the sweet spot between designs. It can handle tougher materials but still slices very much like a Japenese version/style. I use it frequently as it really feels great in the hand. Fit and finish are excellent and it came out sharp and readly to use. Great, very satisfied!
Amazing and beautiful
Great customer service, and the knife is amazing ❤️
I love my knife. It is beautiful. The only think I am not a fan of is how small the personalized text is. I thought it would be a bit bigger, so the ability to choose the size overlayed on the knife when ordering would be a super cool improvement.
This knife is a joy to use: solid feel in the hand, nice weight, fabulous balance. The olive wood is beautiful. I'm just very pleased with the knife. There was a tiny snafu with my original order, and Messermeister was great to work with in remedying the matter. Thank you Brandy B.! There will be more Messermeister purchases in my future.
The best knives and the best customer service!
Razor sharp. Great materials
Beautiful, well-balanced knife! 6” size perfect size & weight for my smaller hand.
Great knife, it has been a wonderful tool to add to my kitchen and I hope to be upgrading the rest of my knives to this caliber soon.
Feels great in my hand. Perfect size for me. Great quality. Love it!
Handle is stunning and the hand feel is great. Blade is sharp and seems to hold for quite a while. Really a joy to use all around.
Love the knife! I bought two as Christmas presents for each of my sisters, and then bought one for myself!
My wife love's it !!
We bought this knife for our son who loves to spend time in the kitchen experimenting. He loves it and we would highly recommend it!
This knife was a gift and absolutely love it! It's not too heavy and I found is the perfect size for chopping onions, herbs, strawberries, chicken tenders, etc. I also love the aesthetic and that you're able to personalize the blade. I plan to buy more knives from this collection.
The Olivia wood looks really nice it will get darker with use and conditioning . The knife is light and nimble in hand and the blade profile is excellent.
I love my new knife! It is everything I was hoping it would be. I am adjusting to the weight and grip change from the chef's knife in my Chicago Cutlery block set, but I think I will be a more efficient knife handler with this upgrade. Messermeister customer support is amazing. I talked with Chelcea, one of the company VP's. She handled my questions expertly and even gave me some additional knife care tips. I definitely could tell I was talking to a real person that has a passion for her business. I absolutely intend on purchasing other Messermeister products in the future.
I am obsessed with this gorgeous knife. From the Olive wood handle to the sharp blade to the weight of the knife - all so balanced. It's also a piece of art.
Great customer service, decent chef knife.
My first knife arrived not sharpened, and customer service promptly resolved the issue.
The 8" Oliva has a phenomenally comfortable handle (I use a pinch grip) and a good German-style chef knife for heavier-duty kitchen tasks (I use mine for chopping nuts, chocolate, watermelon, etc., things not suited to a thinner Japanese-style knife). Like this knife really well for what it is. Easy to maintain the edge (I use stones).
Wonderful piece of steel. Holds an edge fantastically, and is ergonomically better than knives 3 or 4 times the price (I’m looking at you, Henkels). Loved my 8” so much I picked up a 9” second hand.
I just got a set of 4, and very happy with everything, Sharpness, balance, look and feel. The one thing I'm not that keen on was the mismatch of the wood grain and color. I know its wood and each grain will be different, but I wasn't expecting a high level of difference in shade. Otherwise, I'm very happy with the upgrade. the only thing I might have done different is to buy thing in person where I can find the closest matches myself.
I was looking for a nice knife that can do all and will last in my kitchen for awhile. And this is my conclusion.
The olive wood handle gives very high end touch. The finish of the wood is excellent. Very smooth and nice grip. I was concerned about the weight since I don't like too heavy knife and this knife has just right weight for me to use. The knife was sharp out of box. It's just a well balanced knife.
The delivery was quick and the package of knife was a wonderful. Totally giftable!
I had a small issue with my first package, but they took care of it quickly. Awesome customer service! I totally recommend to others!
This is a sexy knife. I have long fingers and this is the most comfortable knife I’ve ever held, which in turn makes it the easiest to control. I’m in love.

Great knife, very sharp, great looks.
Great knife, wicked sharp out the box and holds it well. Feels nice in the hand, great weight
I bought this knife a while ago if could go back in time I’d buy two more!!
Andrew J. Carrier
Amazing knife. Perfectly balanced. Terrible packaging. If you are spending this much on a knife It would be nice if It came in more than a thin plastic case filled with foam.
Love this knife. Have yet to use at work, but I will soon.
Amazing knife! Great quality, sharpness, weight. Just beautiful. Makes chopping fun! We use it for vegetables, fish, meat. Just be careful- the blade is sharp!
The best knives ive ever owned! I have 4 in my chef bag and they have never let me down. Beautiful knives that do the job 100%
Beautiful knife with sturdy handle
Great knives for professional use
Wife loves it. Sharp, good balance and well made. Bought others of this brand to go with it. They are top notch as well but the wife likes this one best.
Use it for work. Great knife. Buy them for gifts occasionally.
Perfect balance. Doesn't make my hand hurt after lengthy use. Beautiful knife
Very sharp, good deal for chef knife
Beautiful knife. Handle needs a bit of maintenance from time to time by rubbing wood block oil or cream (the same stuff to treat your cutting boards), but this is a very simple task. It works marvelously.
Feels nice, let's see how long it holds an edge
Gorgeous knife. Well balanced. Feels wonderful in the hand. Messermeister is “a cut above” when it comes to beautiful, solidly made knives. Perfection.
A beautiful. big, brawny knife that has earned it's place among my Japanese collection. The fit and finish on this knife is excellent. Very good looking. I use this knife for jobs that my other knives run from. A nice combination of beauty and the beast!
well balanced takes and holds a nice edge.
Wow - sharpest knife I've ever had - cuts through meat like butter. I only use it for that and use the older not-so-sharp for cheese, etc.,This is one fantastic blade.
Holds edge. Feels great in my hands. Everything that I want in a good chef knife. Great buy.
Excellent quality for the price

Messermeister makes a great knife. Holds its edge. Elegant looking knife, it's probably best to seal the wood handle though.
Really nice knife
One of the most beautiful knives you will ever own
This is a great knife! Very well balanced, light weight, fits my hand in a pinch grip perfectly and it is a very sharp knife! A few passes over a steel and it's perfect edge is right back. I was going to order the black poly handle, but I'm glad I got the Olive wood! It's a beautiful knife and I'm sure it will be one of my favorite tools for a very, very long time.
Beautiful knife, and felt good in my hand, but the blade wasn't as sharp as the Messermeister Meridian Elites. After 1 week of very little use I couldn't cut through a tomato, it would just smoosh it. I'm not sure if its because this is the "Stealth" version and somehow that effects the edge of the blade, or if its because they somehow make the blades different on the Olivia series. My other complaint is I was always terrified of staining the handle while I cooked. Part of the joy of this knife is how great it looks, and as a result while I was cooking with it I was always concerned I would ruin the look of the handle so I was never able to truly enjoy it. I would recommend the Meridian Elites since they are slightly lower priced and you can abuse them without as much worry. Again, I'm not sure why the blade was more on this specific knife.
This is an awesome knife. I purchased this knife for work and have been using it every day for the past month. I have nothing but good things to say: the weight is perfect, it is constructed with high quality materials and it is honestly a very beautiful knife as well. The olive wood handle is naturally anti-microbial and with some Boos Block Board Cream will stay in pristine shape.The X50 steel is phenomenal, but it can be hard to put an edge on it. I recommend getting a stone if you want to take this tool seriously, but this knife holds an edge for a long time, even with heavy daily use.
My daughter LOVES LOVES LOVES this knife. What more do I need to say ?! That means dad's happy, too.
