Great Product
Me and my wife I wanted to replace the “mixed drawer” full of old knives, some of which were wedding gifts (some 35 years ago) so I made it a mission. The mission was to get rid of all those old knives, replace them with a quality knives and to do it without spending a small fortune. After many reviewing knives within our budget, I purchased a 7 inch filet knife of the Mercer brand from they’re Genesis Collection. We both loved it even before we took it out of the package. These knives fit our hands, have a nice non- slip handle, have great weight and cut very well (very sharp). And no rust spots or water staining!! We now own six of the kitchen knives, after we get the 10” carver and the bread knife we are going to purchase 2 sets of their steak knives (big family), and the “ the junk drawer” is now almost empty! You will really love these knives and I truly don’t believe there is a better kitchen knife on the market for the money. You will be surprised at what you get for your money!

I received a set of Mercers when I entered culinary school. Been using them ever since. Balanced, good grip, keeps the edge. Top notch knives for a really good price.

Cons: None
This is a great knife and without a doubt the best chef's knife made for the money and by far the best value on the market today. It is the same quality as knives costing 2 to 3 times more. I did a great deal of research trying to find the best knife for the lowest price and when I received this knife it actually exceeded my expectations. This is a very high quality knife regardless of price. I found that the Mercer Genesis line is used by over 80% of the cooking schools in the USA and is the knife used on the TV show "Hell's Kitchen".
