Me llegó en una cajota ajaja, el cuchillo está muy filoso pero creo que después de dos meses de uso comienza a perder filo, sigue estando bastante filoso, pero yo creo que con un afilador seguirá estando como nuevo siempre, recomendadisimo
Sharp? Yes! If you don't know what the claw method of cutting is, I advise you to look it up. It may be documented by another name, but that's what I was taught and that's what I call it. Make sure them fingers are pulled back towards your palm, otherwise you may end up with something in your salad that you didn't intend.
I have cut apples, celery, oranges, steak, boned chicken, onions, and sandwiches with much less pressure applied to the knife. Let the blade work, and you just be the guide. Dicing? How about mincing. You'll have those onions or celery so finely chopped in seconds for that chicken salad or whatever dish you are preparing, it makes cooking fun again. I endorse this knife. *Remember to be safe with it folks.*
Do you want a pretty, but over-priced logo and sub par quality to display on the counter or do you want a razor sharp tool that is going to get the job done and impress you w its surprising affordability for a quality knife that WILL bring you back to Mercer when you need to replace a knife...or make a recommendation?
I have both a Japanese version w the wood handle used primarily for chopping vegtables and this knife, both came RAZOR sharp.
I do prefer the Japanese version slightly over this knife due to the weight and feel in MY hand and I expect the Japanese steel will be easier to sharpen once needed as its a thinner steel which is good for those of us that have had surgery on our hands.
I won't turn down a Mercer Knife under any circumstance though.
I'm starting a home blog and hope to make them one of my first spotlights!
This is the sharpest knife I’ve ever owned. It is dangerously sharp. The shine on the blade is blinding, much shinier than my other knives.
Make sure to get a sheath for it, you DONT want this knife laying around in a drawer.
I was holding up a pepper in the air with one hand. With my other hand I was slicing off thin layers of the pepper effortlessly. It’s awesome.
Normally with Jalapeños I will cut it in half, then further cuts are made on the INSIDE of the pepper because the outside is harder and more slippery, a dull knife can slip off it. This knife however, sliced strait down through it. Didn’t even need a sawing motion, just pressed strait down on the outside of the pepper.
My new favorite knife, I’ll use it every single time I cook. Love it. Buy this knife!!
I've purchased 2 Mercer 8" chef knives for myself and a friend and highly recommend these to anyone looking for an affordable knife for everyday use in their kitchen. I've worked in a professional kitchen for over 10 years and this knife is just as good as what we had in our kitchen. The grip is super comfortable, the blade is light allowing for easy maneuvering. The edge held for about 3 months of constant use before I had to sharpen it. Sure, it's not fancy looking but all I need it to do is reliable cut and chop and it's perfect for that.
