Messermeister Meridian Elite - 9" Chef's Knife - E3686-9
This 9" Chef's Knife, like our other forged Chef's Knives, possesses the Elite Edge, the hand polished spine, the bolsterless heel of the blade and the professional chef's camber for precise rocking action. 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.
