You will find yourself using the Messermeister 9cm Oliva Elite Spear Point Paring Knife daily for a variety of tasks requiring accuracy! This knife has a fine-edge blade that is designed to be an all-purpose knife, similar to a chef’s knife, except smaller. The compact blade and molded handle will facilitate trimming, peeling and slicing of produce.
- The German 1.4116 stainless carbon 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 3 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 and honing tasks, making use of the entire blade from heel to tip
