The Meridian is one of Messermeister's high-end cutlery lines which are one-piece fully forged from a single blank of steel. Meridian knives have a comfortable, traditional styled handle that is riveted to a full tang.
The knives are 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. 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.
