Begin your cutlery collection with the essentials in the Messermeister Oliva Elite 6-Piece Magnet Block Set. This magnetic wood block comes with the Oliva Elite 3.5-inch Paring Knife, 5-inch Cheese and Tomato Knife, 6-inch Utility Knife, 8-inch Stealth Chef's Knife, and 9-inch Bread Knife. The paring knife is an essential tool to handle smaller cutting tasks, such as peeling, coring, and pitting. The cheese and tomato knife has a serrated edge and double-pointed tip, with holes in the blade to prevent sticking. The utility knife has a narrow, straight blade and sharp tip to handle detail work, along with slicing and chopping. The stealth chef's knife is an all-purpose knife with a blade that is thinner and lighter than traditional chef's knives. The bread knife slices through crust without compressing the loaf.
These knives are hot-drop hammer forged from a single piece of 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. The 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.
