Messermeister Meridian Elite - 7" Kullenschliff Santoku Knife - MM E3610-7K
The Kullenschliff Santoku Knife, essentially an Asian Chef's Knife, is an enhanced version of the regular Santoku because of its alternating kullenschliffs along the edge of the blade. This is one of the most popular knives in the world. Fully forged.
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 Meridian Elite 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.
