Messermeister Knife
Solingen, Germany



What does Messermeister Knife mean in English?

Messermeister is the German word for Knifemaster.

Messer is the German word for knife, meister is the German word for master.

Messermeister has been making premium quality knives in Solingen, Germany since the 1800's.

They've always strived to produce masterful kitchen knives,

And most chefs will tell you they've succeeded.


How have the innovations of the Messermeister Knife line improved their usability?

1) Adding a professional chef's camber to the blade that allows precise rocking action;

2) Polishing the spine, which prevents abrasion of the thumb or finger when they're placed on the top of the blade during use;

3) Modifying the bolster design by trimming the bolster from the heel of the blade, allowing the complete cutting edge to be used, and easily re-sharpened;

4) Every Messermeister Knife undergoes an exclusive 3 step Elite Edge sharpening process which provides the sharpest blades of all forged kitchen cutlery.


Messermeister's craftsmen and engineers have worked to create a variety of knives that will allow chefs on any budget to be able to enjoy a premium German kitchen knife.


San Moritz Elite and Meridian Elite
Are the two top quality Messermeister Knife lines.

San Moritz


This line has over 35 different pieces available, from Santoku knives to off-set scalloped knives, cleavers and slicers.

The handle is a comfortable, damage resistant synthetic, POM (Polyoxymethaline), which is molded over a full tang, making it both practical and hygienic.

The blade is constructed of 41/16 Krupp no-stain tool steel, X55 CrMoV15, a high carbon, molybdenmun-vanadium, chromium alloy.

The steel has been hardened to 56 Rockwell hardness, which in layman's terms means that they're tough enough to hold their edge through extended periods of hard use, but are also easy to re-sharpen.


Meridian Elite


This line also offers 35 different Messermeister kitchen knives, including Sandwich knives, off-set knives, a salmon slicer, cleavers, tomato knives and garnishing knives.

The handles are POM, classically styled, and triple riveted to the full tang.

As on the San Moritz knives, the blade is constructed of 41/16 Krupp no-stain tool steel, and hardened to 56 Rockwell.

Blade steel is the same 41/16 Krupp, with a brushed finish, polished spine, and Elite Edge sharpening.
