From the manufacturer
One-piece precision forged construction
Precision forged German steel
High carbon, no-stain German cutlery steel resists rust, corrosion, and discoloration. One-piece precision forged construction and a rounded spine gives every Renaissance knife superior strength and durability. Taper-ground edge allows for added stability, easy honing, long lasting sharpness, and increased efficiency when cutting and chopping.
Ergonomic Delrin handles
Triple-riveted ergonomic Delrin handle provides superior comfort. Delrin will not break down from exposure to kitchen oils and is able to withstand hot and cold temperatures. A shorter bolster exposes the full edge of the blade, making it easier to sharpen. The bolster strengthens the knife, adds durability, and provides excellent balance when cutting food.
NSF is a global provider of public health and safety-based risk management solutions. It's a highly respected independent organization that has rigorously tested and certified that Mercer Genesis knives have met their standard for safety, quality, and performance.

Care and handling of Renaissance cutlery
The performance of a knife can be diminished if not cared for properly.
Cutlery should never be washed in a dishwasher because intense heat and harsh detergents may cause the handle to deteriorate. Carefully wash by hand with soap and warm water, rinse and dry with a soft towel. Do not soak or submerge in water for long periods of time or use chlorine bleach because it can pit and discolor the blade. Avoid soaking in aluminum or stainless steel sinks because these metals may cause pitting on the blade.
Store in a cutlery block or sheath to preserve the cutting edges and prevent injuries.

The downside is that the tomatoes I buy can get a little soft just days after purchase. And if, they hide themselves at the bottom of your fridge, only surfacing a week or so later, they can be especially soft and difficult to slice cleanly.
So, when I learned of the existence of a knife specifically designed to cut tomatoes, I knew I had to have one!
After much deliberation, I decided on this little beauty. Solidly constructed and very nicely finished, it is made from German X50 Cr Mo V15 stainless steel. Very durable and very hard. The latter being important as the serrated edge is going to be rather tricky to sharpen, I think.
The blade is very sharp and effortlessly slices even the mushiest of fruits. Its compact size is especially handy for smaller cherry tomatoes which you wouldn’t want to try and hold while attacking with a full-size chef’s or Santoku knife. Handles a variety of small fruits and vegetables and even does a very good job as a mini breadknife when tackling small loaves, rolls and buns.
These knives are commercial grade NSF approved cutlery, and should do just fine in any home kitchen. These are very comparable to other well known high priced German knives, without the name. Actually if you took these and expensive german knives and removed the branding you would be hard pressed to tell them apart. Long ago when I worked in the food industry, most were using either Mercer or Dexter-Russel. I prefer the mercer handle to others. If you want quality culinary industry grade tools, that wont break the bank, then Mercer is probably the best you can get.
This is the equipment you would see as "house" or "supplied" in any industry kitchen. As far as a first set goes, this is a good way to go. If you have a student in the family, or you yourself is wanting to learn more in the kitchen, then these tools will be of great interest to you. All you need is a Chefs,Parring,Slicer/Carver,and wavey/serrated knife 10" or so, at home a 5" is good for me.
