Messermeister San Moritz Elite - 4.1/2" Kullenschliff Steak Knife - E/2684-4K
A steak knife is a 4 ½” personal sized carving knife. This Steak Knife has a fine edge with an upward curved tip. The alternating kullenschliffs (a.k.a. kullens, hollows or grantons) on each side of the knife reduce drag and prevent items from sticking to the blade. The grip can vary but the knife is usually pulled rather than pushed through the meat.
The main cutting edge on this Steak Knife is used to slice meat while the tip assists in separating meat from the bone.
Steel: 41/16 Krupp (Germany) High Carbon, Molybdenum-Vanadium, Chromium, No Stain Tool Steel, X55 CrMoV15.
Handles: state-of-the-art, highly damage resistant material, "Polyoxymethaline".
These knives have the sharpest edges of all forged cutlery. An elaborate 3 step sharpening process is enhanced in it's final step by being carefully hand-polished.
The San Moritz is hardened to 56 Rockwell hardness C, making them hard enough to hold their edge for a long period of time, yet it is easy to restore their edge with a steel.
