The Messermeister Meridian Elite 5" Scalloped Slicing Knife, often called a 'tomato knife', is the ideal tool to have in your kitchen for slicing smooth skin fruits or vegetables without crushing the food.
The teeth on the blade of the knife bite into the skin to quickly slice fruits, vegetables, and processed meats. The fork tip of the knife can be used to transfer cut foods from cutting surfaces to plates or bowls.
Each blade in the Messermeister Meridian Elite line is fully forged. Fully forged blades are better balanced and stronger then stamped. These blades also have greater edge retention. The tang of the blade is covered by a triple riveted “POM” handle.
Properly caring for your Messermeister knife is very important, and will help extend the life of your blade. 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.
