Begin your cutlery collection with the essentials in the Messermeister Avanta 8-Piece Knife Block Set. This wood block comes with the Avanta 2.5-inch Garnishing Knife, 6-inch Utility Knife, 6-inch Flexible Boning Knife, 9-inch Chef's Knife, 9-inch Bread Knife, 10-inch Slicer, and 12-inch Sharpening Steel. The garnishing knife is an essential tool to handle smaller cutting tasks, such as peeling, coring, and pitting. The utility knife has a narrow, straight blade and sharp tip to handle detail work, along with slicing and chopping. Use the flexible boning knife to trim fat and remove bones from beef, pork, and chicken. The chef's knife is an all-purpose knife that can mince herbs, dice vegetables, and slice through thick rinds and large cuts of meat. The bread knife slices through crust without compressing the loaf. The slicer has a pointed tip and narrow blade for controlled slicing. The sharpening steel realigns knife blades between sharpenings.
Developed for a leading culinary school, Messermeister Avanta cutlery combines quality and value. The blades are made from German X50 stainless steel, with full tang construction for balance and strength while cutting. The triple-riveted handles are made from POM for durability and rounded for comfort. Hand wash and dry.
