Description
MM36105K: Elite Kullenschliff Santoku
Messermeister
 
Also known as a Japanese Chef’s Knife, the Messermeister 5" Kullenschliff Santoku Knife is a wide blade knife with an overall thinner spine and taper than a French or German style Chef’s Knife. The thin taper (or blade thickness) is lengthened to give it maximum precision when slicing. The spine runs parallel to the relatively flat cutting edge, which has a bolsterless heel and only curves near the tip to create a broad bladed knife similar in shape to a cleaver. The alternating kullenschliffs (a.k.a. kullens, hollows or grantons) on each side of the knife reduce drag and prevent items from sticking to the blade.

Manufacturer SKU: E/3610-5K.

Made in Solingen, Germany

Messermeister is the premier brand of authentic German knives that still utilizes the original hot drop hammer forged manufacturing process. Each knife is handcrafted from the finest quality carbon steel alloy and industrial strength handle components.

Messermeister is one of our favorite knife brands and they are noted for having some of the highest standards in the industry. Founder Bernd Dressler was a true innovator and traveled the country seeking the advice of chefs, retailers, and industry professionals. Among his innovations was the first bolsterless heel and the first truly full cambered wide blade chef’s knives. He also created a sharper edge by making sure all the forged knives were ground, reground, and finished with a true polished bevel. He paid meticulous attention to detail and made sure each knife was crafted by devoted Solingen artisans, using only the finest available industrial quality components.

Best Knife I've ever Used!
I mostly use this knife for slicing and dicing fruit and vegetables, and occasionally slicing meat or fish (no bones). I've had the knife 4 years and have never had it sharpened. I run it across a steel maybe once a week, and it is still razor sharp. I wish the sheath that came with it had been higher quality, it fell apart after a year.
