Dependable and versatile, it's no surprise that professional chefs reach for blades like the Messermeister San Moritz Elite 8" Kullenschliff Chef Knife first. Its broad blade has been ground to razor-like sharpness—gently sloping upwards to allow for easy mincing—while its ergonomic handle helps you to make quick work out of tedious chopping, dicing, and cutting tasks. Alternating kullenschliffs (a.k.a. kullens, hollows or grantons) help food fall easily from the blade and greatly reduce drag, making this your go-to workhorse knife in the kitchen.
The San Moritz Elite Line is the rivet-less contemporary ergonomic handle version of Messermeister's world-renowned Elite series, individually handcrafted one at a time by 3rd and 4th generation cutlery artisans in Solingen, Germany. Like all Messermeister masterpieces, these knives are one-piece hot-drop hammer forged from a single billet of the finest German steel alloy, the same method used for centuries of world class German knifemaking. Each San Moritz Elite knife is handcrafted one at a time, giving every blade an unmistakable heirloom quality to be treasured by any family and kitchen.
