Messermeister Meridian Elite - 2.1/2" Garnishing Knife - E/3680-2.1/2
The blade of the Garnishing Knife has an inverted curve that gives it a more common name of “bird’s beak” parer. The small 2.1/2" knife is used to turn rounded surfaces of vegetables such as potatoes, beets, carrots, and zucchini into barrel shapes.
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.
