Carl Mertens Country 8″ Extra Wide Chef’s Knife

In cooking, a chef’s knife is a cutting tool used in food preparation. It was originally designed to slice and disjoint large cuts of beef, and today it’s the primary general-utility knife for most western cooks. The Carl Mertens Country 8″ Extra Wide Chef’s Knife is a kitchen must have. Whether you’re peeling, carving, slicing, dicing, mincing, or more, this chef’s knife offers durability and versatility. the extra wide blade makes it the perfect blend between a Chinese chef’s knife and a traditional chef’s knife, which is why it’s perfect for your kitchen.

The Country Line

In more than 40 operations – from forging to hardening, grinding and mounting – the traditionally hand-forged quality knives of the Country line are produced. Each blade is hot forged from a single piece of chrome-molybdenum-vanadium steel and then hardened to approximately 58掳 Rockwell hardness. Experienced knife sharpeners give the knives the right sharpness. The blades are pulled off a ceramic disc with an angle of 14掳 on each side. This results in the extreme sharpness and high cutting ability along the entire length of the blade – from the blade tip to the cropping. The bolster – the typical feature for forged knives – provides the optimal balance of the knife and secures the hand from slipping into the blade. The handles of smoked oak are permanently attached to the blade with three stainless steel rivets. The individual grain makes each knife unique, and is what make the Country line so fantastic.

In order to mark a product with the name Solingen, all key manufacturing stages must have been processed and finished within Solingen.
