The Messermeister Meridian Elite 2-Piece Chef's and Paring Knife Set contains two of the most essential knives a home or professional chef can have in their kitchen cutlery collection. Included in this set is a 8" Chef s knife and a 3.5" Paring knife.
The chef s knife is one of the most popular knives in the kitchen, it is the all around knife that can be used for a variety of kitchen jobs. It can handle tasks like chopping and slicing fruits and vegetables to breaking down large cuts of meat. One of the most popular knife sizes for the chef s knife is 8 because it allows for greater control when handling the knife.
In a close second for the most popular knife is the paring knife. This knife can handle all the tasks that are too small for the chef s knife. The shorter blade of the paring knife is better suited for intricate work and cutting smaller items. This shorter blade offers better control for finer cuts.
Both of the knives in the Messermeister Meridian Elite 2 Piece Set are fully forged and have a bolsterless edge. Triple riveted to the tang of the knife is a POM handle. This handle is ergonomically shaped to be more comfortable in your hand while you are using it.
Properly caring for your Messermeister knife is very important, and will give more life to your blades. Maintaining a sharp edge on your blade and keeping food from drying to it can help prevent injury while using your knife. After you are finished with your knives, clean them with warm soapy water, fully dry and safely store them in a blade guard, knife block, or an in-drawer storage tray. Do not wash your knives in the dishwasher or let them soak in water.
