8" Chef's Knife - Oliva Elite
8″ Stealth Chef’s Knife
In the essence of creating a sharper German chef’s knife, Messermeister has taken their Chef’s Knives and ground the entire blade to a thinner profile. In doing so, they created the thinnest, sharpest Chef’s knife ever. This knife is still made of the finest German steel alloy and it now has a stealth-like profile that makes the elite edge, the sharpest edge of all forged German knives.
The Chef’s Knife, also known as a Cook’s Knife or French Knife, is the most versatile knife in the kitchen and thus the most used blade style by professional chefs. The broad bladed knife has a spine which gradually tapers to the cambered, cutting edge and creates a pointed tip. Because of this geometry, this is the one knife that should be well balanced with weight distributed equally between the handle and the blade. The Chef’s Knife is the flagship of cutlery. The blade is shaped so that it can peel, trim, slice, dice, chop, mince, vegetables, fillet fish, and cut meat. Each part of the knife is designed to perform a different task. It is the flagship of cutlery.
Oliva Elite boasts an exquisite natural Italian Olivewood handle in the popular forged knife line series. The highly-figured, beautiful golden-brown handle provides a secure ergonomic grip with an unsurpassed balance. No two handles are the identical, making these knives truly boutique and one-of-a-kind. The blade, bolster, and tang are one-piece, hot-drop forged from a single billet of the finest German steel alloy. Messermeister continues to employ the same techniques that have been the hallmark of the fine German-made cutlery for hundreds of years by handcrafting Oliva Elite knives on at a time. Oliva Elite are of heirloom quality and simply the best forged German knife.
