Begin your cutlery collection with the essentials in the Messermeister Oliva Elite 11-Piece Next Level Block Set. This magnetic wood block comes with the Messermeister Oliva Elite 3.5-inch Paring Knife, 6-inch Utility Knife, 6-inch Flexible Boning Knife, 7-inch Santoku Knife, 8-inch Chef's Knife, 9-inch Bread Knife, and four 4.5-inch steak knives. The paring 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 boning knife to trim fat and remove bones from beef, pork, and chicken. The Santoku knife slices, dices, and minces, with a thinner blade than a chef's knife. 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 set of four steak knives is designed for cutting steak at the table. The Next Level Block features acacia wood panels with magnetic pads.
The Messermeister Oliva Elite collection is hot-drop hammer forged from German stainless carbon alloy steel, resulting in unparalleled blade strength. The blades are heat-treated and cooled to 57-58 Rockwell hardness for excellent edge retention. The blades have a 15-degree edge angle on each side, sharpened by hand on a cloth wheel. Full tang construction provides additional balance and strength while cutting. Mediterranean olive wood handles are shaped for an ergonomic pinch grip.
Hand wash and dry. Apply food-safe mineral oil to wood handles. Made in Germany.
