MM36869: Elite 9" Chef's Knife


A Chef's Knife, also known as a Cook's Knife or French Knife, is the most versatile knife in the kitchen and thus the most used blade style by professional chefs. The broad bladed knife has a spine which gradually tapers to the cambered, cutting edge and creates a pointed tip. This knife also has a bolster in front of the handle which gradually tapers to the tip. Because of this geometry, this is the one knife that should be well balanced with weight distributed equally between the handle and the blade. 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.

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.

Work of art
Use it as general chef's knife around the kitchen. It's perfect for someone with big hands and I love the massive, solid feel that only German knives really have. Great steel which keeps its edge. Will last a lifetime.

great edge and solid feel
I use the knife as a general purpose chef's knife, doing practically everything. What I like is the massive, solid feel to it you just do not get with Japanses knives. You can cut accurately, but also chop from time to time. The edge just holds and holds. There really is no substitute for a forged blade, when all is said and done.
