The Messermeister San Moritz Elité knife collection have a completely molded, ergonomic and contemporary handle. The blade, bolster and tang are one-piece, hot-drop, hammer forged from a single billet of the finest German steel alloy. Featuring a unique personalization plate, this series of knives will be a statement piece in any kitchen. San Moritz Elité knives are handcrafted individually by 3rd and 4th generation cutlery artisans in Solingen, Germany. The chef’s knife is the workhorse in every kitchen. You will gravitate to this knife and will find yourself using it for 90% of all your cutting tasks. The Messermeister San Moritz Elite 9” Chef’s Knife has an industrial strength polyoxymethylene or “POM” handle. The hand forged Stealth blade is about 25% thinner and 10% lighter than our traditional chef’s knife. It has been ground down to a thin profile to create a razor sharp edge. You can chop, slice, dice and mince your way through extended cutting tasks without fatigue.

Product Features

  • The German 1.4116 high-carbon, stainless alloy blade resists stains and corrosion, exhibits toughness and durability, holds its edge retention, and is easy to re-sharpen to a razor-like edge.
  • This knife line is one-piece, hot-drop hammer forged, which produces the strongest blade from heel to tip. The blades are heat treated and cooled to achieve a Rockwell of 57-58.
  • The three-step, 15 degree “Elite” edge is hand stropped on a cloth wheel, creating the sharpest possible cutting surface on an edged tool.
  • The bolsterless heel simplifies all cutting, sharpening & honing tasks, making use of the entire blade from heel to tip.
  • Handcrafted in the historic cutlery capital of Solingen, Germany.
  • The Knife for Life guarantee provides a lifetime warranty against material and manufacturing defects.

By far the most used tool in my kitchen Ok so I’m not a professional chef or anything, but I do enjoy cooking and do it a lot. Although I’m a “lay-cook” I recognize the value of proper high quality tools for the job. I did a lot of research before purchasing this particular knife, and while I wouldn’t say its the best for everyone in every cooking situation of course, all things considered (steel, edge retention, length, price, etc.) it represents an outstanding knife by any standard that any cook (even professional ones) would be…

Best Bang For Your Buck I have worked with a lot of knives and own several Japanese and western style blades. Out of the box sharpness is phenomenal. The weight (which is not too heavy for it’s size) and balance of the knife makes this knife easy to wield for small as well as large jobs. The first day I received this knife I put it through a 15 hour shift of dicing, chopping, and slicing. The edge held up extremely well without any sign of dullness. The slight curvature of the blade makes rocking the knife theough…

(Sorry…couldn’t think of a better analogy…but you get the point) Anyway, the weight and balance are perfect for me. It is sooo sharp. I like the curve of the blade…perfect for the cutting motions I tend to use. I took a course on Rouxbe.com about how to professionally use knives. Glad I did. Safety is critical with a knife like…
