Messermeister Messermeister Park Plaza 9-Inch Chef's Knife

Messermeister, featuring premier German cutlery, has roots in both Germany and Australia. Today, Messermeister operates as a U.S. company that strives to provide the highest quality of cutlery and culinary tools to both food-service profess...ionals and home cooks. We are committed to designing new and innovative products and sourcing the world to find the very best quality at the right price for the market. The Park Plaza collection of stamped knives is manufactured using the finest stamped high carbon German krupp stainless steel, featuring a sharp edge and hard blade, allowing it to hold its edge for a long time. The Park Plaza collection features a triple riveted polyoxymethylene POM handle, permamently securing the handle to the full tang and providing a classic design. The riveted handle is made with impact resistant and state-of-the-art materials to withstand rigorous use. Stamped knives are noticeably lighter than forged knives, which is an attribute for those who are not comfortable with heavy knives. A chef's knife is the most versatile knife in a kitchen and the most used blade by professional chefs. Each part of the knife is designed to perform a different task. The tip is used for fine work such as paring, coring, trimming and peeling. The middle edge is used for slicing, dicing, chopping and other precision cuts. The heel area is needed when a task requires force and the wedge shape to split dense material. The spine can be used to crack shells and the flat side of the blade can crush garlic. This Park Plaza chefs knife measures 9-inch. Messermeister offers a guaranteed lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. Every knife comes with free lifetime sharpening and reconditioning. Once the edge is no longer sharp, have an expert sharpener re-grind a new edge on your knife or with a return shipping fee, Messermeister will re-sharpen your knife free of charge.

<p>Styled after the classic Japanese cook's knife, this ultra-convenient Santoku knife features a sharp 7-inch blade that comes in... handy when preparing a wide range of cuisine, anything from fine Asian to modern American. Use it to quickly and effortlessly chop, cube, slice, dice, and more. Its wide blade also makes it possible to scoop cut pieces and transfer them from the cutting board to awaiting pots or bowls. Overall, the Santoku knife measures approximately 12-1/5 by 4/5 by 1-4/5 inches.</p> <p>As part of Shun's Premier line, the knife features a VG10 steel blade, clad with 32 layers of stainless Damascus, then beveled for lateral stability and incredible precision. Its hand-hammered finish not only adds intriguing visual appeal, but it also creates a hollow-ground surface, which reduces knife-drag when cutting and prevents food from sticking to the blade. The knife also comes equipped with a premium Pakkawood handle in a walnut finish, which offers a comfortable, secure grip. As a sleek and stylish finishing touch, Shun embossed its logo on the end cap of the knife's handle. The high-quality knife can safely go in the dishwasher, but for best results, washing it by hand and letting it air dry is recommended. The knife carries a limited lifetime warranty.</p> <div class="aplus"> <h3 class="productDescriptionSource">From the Manufacturer</h3> <div class="three-fourth-col"> <div class="leftImage" style="width:400px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B003B66YKA-hammered.jpg" width="400" height="181" alt="Shun Premier" /> <div class="imageCaption">Gorgeous hammered-finish blade with PakkaWood handle.</div> </div> <h4>Premier Series</h4> <h5>Why Buy Shun Premier</h5> <p>Calling to mind the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan, the Shun Premier possesses the grace and beauty of hand-forged knives of old. Every blade is made of VG10 steel, clad with stainless Damascus, then ground for lateral stability and incredible precision. Where the steels meet, a wavy line called a Hamon is formed--similar to when samurai swords are tempered using a clay-baking technique. The striking hammered finish ("Tsuchime" in Japanese) acts as a series of hollow-ground cavities, reducing drag when cutting as well as quickly releasing food from the blade. The rich walnut PakkaWood handles nestle comfortably in the hand, and the Shun logo embossed on the bottom adds balance and beauty to the knife, whether in the hand or at rest in the block.</p> <h5>NSF certified for use in commercial kitchens.</h5> <h4>Highlights</h4> <ul> <li>Blade core consists of high carbon VG-10, a Japanese super steel known for its edge retention, allowing the knives to hold their sharp edges for years <li>Blades boast a 16-degree angle, making these the sharpest knives out of the box; this is sharper than traditional European blades, which are usually sharpened to 20 to 22 degrees <li>Clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side for strength and flexibility; this metal is corrosion-resistant and easy to maintain <li>Damascus styling adds to the beauty of the knife while the microscopic air pockets created by the cladding process reduces friction during slicing <li>Hammered finish, or "Tsuchime," acts as hollow ground cavities, reducing drag when cutting <li>Comfortable oblong handle nestles in the palm and provides control, keeping the knife secure in the hand during use <li>Pakkawood handles, made of resin-impregnated hardwood, are NSF certified for use in commercial kitchens <li>Produced in Seki City, Japan, the capital of samurai sword manufacturing <li>Rockwell hardness rating of 60-61 ensures that it takes and holds its incredibly sharp edge longer <li>Hand wash and dry recommended; limited lifetime warranty </ul> <h4>Detailed Features</h4> <h5>Kasumi Method of Knifemaking</h5> <p>Kasumi is a traditional Japanese style of knifemaking in which an extremely hard core of high-carbon steel is clad--that is, sheathed or covered--with an exterior jacket of another steel. The somewhat "softer" exterior cladding protects the inner cutting core. In Japanese, kasumi means "mist" and is so called because the exterior steel can have a lovely misty appearance when compared to the harder cutting core.</p> <p>Kasumi construction provides an ultimate mix of properties: an extremely sharp edge and ease of sharpening. This clad construction is similar to how samurai swords are traditionally made.</p> <h5>Hammered Tsuchime Finish</h5> <p>In Japanese, Tsuchime (Tsoo-CHEE-may) simply means "hammered". It does two things: gives the knife a look that is reminiscent of the handcrafting techniques of ancient Japan; and creates tiny pockets of air that act as hollow-ground cavities to reduce drag and quickly release food from the blade. Shun's gorgeous new Premier line features a hand-hammered tsuchime blade finish.</p> <h5>Damascus (Suminigashi)</h5> <p>Many Shun cutlery lines are characterized by the beautiful Damascus patterning on the blades. In Japan, this is also known as suminigashi, or ink pattern, because of its resemblance to the undulating patterns made by ink in water. To create this style of blade, a cutting core of VG10 is clad on each side with 16 layers of Damascus steel, made up of SUS410 and SUS431 stainless steel. Then the blades are bead-blasted to reveal the elegant, waved pattern.</p> <p>In addition to its beauty, the Damascus has two purposes. First, it protects and supports the extremely hard cutting core. Second, it helps the blade glide through food even more smoothly. You will find Damascus cladding on knives in our Classic, Ken Onion, and Premier series.</p> <h5>PakkaWood</h5> <p>PakkaWood is a premium handle material made of genuine hardwood impregnated with resin. The resin makes it moisture resistant, strong, and durable. Sanding and buffing brings PakkaWood to a beautiful gloss finish. As with natural wood, no two pieces of PakkaWood are exactly alike.</p> </div> <div class="fourth-col last"> <h4>Professional Manufacturing</h4> <div class="leftImage" style="width:200px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0000Y7KG8-1_t.jpg" width="200" height="129" alt="Manufacturing 1" /> <div class="imageCaption"> View larger.</div> </div> <div class="leftImage" style="width:200px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0000Y7KG8-2_t.jpg" width="200" height="300" alt="Manufacturing 2" /> <div class="imageCaption"> View larger.</div> </div> <div class="leftImage" style="width:200px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0000Y7KG8-3_t.jpg" width="200" height="134" alt="Manufacturing 3" /> <div class="imageCaption"> View larger.</div> </div> <div class="leftImage" style="width:200px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0000Y7KG8-4_t.jpg" width="200" height="158" alt="Manufacturing 4" /> <div class="imageCaption"> View larger.</div> </div> </div> <div class="break"></div> <table class="data"> <tr> <th style="width:100%" colspan="2">Specifications</th> </tr> <tr> <td style="width:20%">Blade Material:</td> <td>VG-10 hardened Japanese steel cutting core, clad with 16 layers of SUS410/SUS431 Pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side, for a total of 33 layers of metal.</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Bevel:</td> <td>Double-beveled</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Cutting angle:</td> <td>16 degrees per side (comprehensive angle 32 degrees) </td> </tr> <tr> <td>Handle Material:</td> <td>PakkaWood (resin-impregnated hardwood); oblong ambidextrous handles </td> </tr> <tr> <td>Sharpening recommendations:</td> <td>Weekly honing to maintain the blade, sharpening as needed with professional sharpener or Asian-style electric sharpener</td> </tr> </table> </div> read more

Also like you, we don't want to pay too much for what we buy. Saber Knives was started because of our frustration at the high cost of quality cutlery. Convinced a small, well-managed company could engineer and produce a product equal to the very best German knives, we set out to do just that. No effort has been spared to reach that goal. We only make fully-forged knives using the best steel, as it makes for a better knife. If you want to pay too much for quality knives, that's your business. If you want to buy a premium set of knives and have money left over-that's our business. When we were first planning the production of Saber Knives, we had our mission to "create the highest caliber of cutlery at an affordable price point" in mind. From the get go, we shared some of the concerns our customers have expressed about manufacturing in China. However, after much time and research into manufacturing options, we found that by making Saber Knives in China we could provide a hot-drop forged and ice treated knife of exceptional quality at a reasonable price while ensuring the environmental and fair labor standards we require. Overseas, at our manufacturing facilities in China, we have inspectors on the ground every day. They are in communication with factory managers and workers to ensure implementation of quality control, fair labor, and environmental standards and policies. In addition, we require third-party social audits of our manufacturing facilities. A Code of Conduct is in place for the factory which includes guidelines covering ethical standards, employee rights, fair labor standards, professional management systems, manufacturing excellence, and health and safety of workers, employees and end users. In addition to rigorous oversight of our entire production process, we have stringent controls to ensure the quality and safety of our finished products including regular product testing through third-party, accredited laboratories to meet regulatory requirements and our own high standards for product safety. By keeping our company small we can ensure a price point for our world-class knives that under-cuts the competition by as much as 70%! Our commitment to responsible manufacturing, packaging and shipping is part of a much larger and more comprehensive commitment to offer the best possible knife quality at prices most can afford.</p> <ul><li>Saber knives offer a unique high-quality solution for the hard-working chef! </li><li>We specialize in custom manufacturing of high grade knives for the culinary artist. </li><li>Each knife is hot drop forged from a single piece of proprietary German steel. </li><li>German Metallurgical Engineers pioneered the high carbon stainless steel manufacturing process. </li><li>This process produces a metal that is hard enough to hold an edge, flexible enough not to break, and soft enough to hone and sharpen. </li><li>It also must have all of the right qualities to resist rust and corrosion throughout its lifetime. </li><li>The resulting formula for German stainless steel is: X 45 Cr Mo V 15. </li><li>This recipe for metal is what is used to ensure every Saber knife is chef sharp!</li></ul> <div class="break"> </div> <div class="leftImage"><img alt="Saber Knives Hot Drop Forged Ice Treated Full Tang High Quality Hand Made German Steel" src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/aplusdiy/B002QFRSMA/saber-2.jpg" /></div> <div class="rightImage"><img alt="Saber Knives Hot Drop Forged Ice Treated Full Tang High Quality Hand Made German Steel" src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/aplusdiy/B002QFRSMA/saber-.jpg" /></div> <p>The Saber Knives Working Professional Chef Knife is intended to provide the career oriented chef with all of the tools necessary to create magic in the kitchen.
