The Carl Merten鈥檚 Metz 7鈥?Santoku Knife is an excellent all-purpose knife. Santoku knives look very similar to chef鈥檚 knives, but their blade is flatter, making them great for quick chopping. The Metz 7鈥?santoku knife has no bolster, so it can be sharpened along the full length. Santoku is a Japanese word meaning 鈥渢hree virtues,鈥?referring to its three primary uses: slicing, dicing, and mincing. It is in these practices that the Metz 7鈥?Santoku Knife shines, with premium balance and heft that allows for simple, stable use. This santoku has a shorter-than-average blade for quick maneuverability in a busy kitchen. Handmade in Solingen, Germany. Limited lifetime warranty.

Metz Line

The name Metz comes from the local dialect in Solingen Germany, also known as the 閳ユ窅ity of Blades閿? Every Carl Mertens Metz knife comes with an extra broad blade made from rustproof chrome molybdenum vanadium steel. The broad blade is designed for cutting robust ingredients effortlessly. Designed by design group SquareOne, Metz knives were inspired by Far Eastern forms, combined with the traditional German craft Carl Mertens has been using from the very beginning. Metz from Carl Mertens brings first-class craft with a contemporary style for chefs to enjoy.

Handmade in Solingen, Germany

Solingen, Germany is known for their high quality cutlery. In fact, Solingen is known as the steel capital of the world and the 鈥渃ity of blades鈥? and is where all Carl Mertens knives are made. In order to mark a product with the name Solingen, all key manufacturing stages must have been processed and finished within Solingen. The product must also meet strict quality standards in order to be entitled to use the 鈥淢ade in Solingen鈥?mark. This means that a knife that was completely crafted and assembled in Solingen can not say 鈥淢ade in Solingen鈥?unless it meets these required quality standards.
