About This Product
The Messermeister Oliva Elite 18cm Kullenschliff Santoku, also known as a Japanese Chefs Knife, has a wide blade with an overall thinner spine and taper than a French or German style Chefs Knife. The thin taper (or blade thickness) is lengthened to give it maximum precision when slicing. It is versatile like a Chefs Knife and cuts vegetables, fish and meat.
Made in Germany, each handle in the Oliva Elite range is unique and made from exquisite, Italian olive wood. No two handles are identical, making the steels truly one-of-a-kind.
