The Messermeister Oliva Elite 7" Kullenschliff Santoku Knife resembles the Japanese style chef's knife. Unlike French or German style chef’s knives, the blade on this Santoku knife is thinner and lighter. The thin taper of the blade allows this knife to make cuts that are more precise. To keep foods from sticking to the blade while cutting, the Oliva Elite Santoku knife has a granton edge. Juices and fats from foods fill the grooves of the knife, which allows more contact between foods and blade.
Every Oliva Elite knife incorporates a beautiful Olive wood Handle. Like your thumbprint, no two handles are alike in the Oliva Elite line. For maximum comfort while cutting, the handle fits seamlessly to the bolster. 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.
