Messermeister Meridian Elite 8-inch Chef’s Knife


Insanely sharp chef knife

(This is a reader favorite from 2003 — Mark)

This is my workhorse. It’s big, heavy but well balanced, and very sharp. The Meridian knives have a German shape but a Japanese-style edge, which means they cut very well. I use this for anything too large for my other knives, and when the mood strikes.
