For the cook looking for the most versatile, basic set, this Elite starter set will provide the precision results long appreciated by professional chefs . The sharp-edged blades will ensure efficient coring, slicing, dicing and chopping of everything from cherry tomatoes to chuck roasts. And the expertly designed handles won't cause tension or discomfort after extended gripping. Set includes: 3.5-in. Paring Knife, 6-in. Utility Knife, and an 8-in. Chef's Knife.
As a gift, this set will bring joy to any cook, whether novice or expert, who values fine knives that last a lifetime. Forged from single pieces of high-carbon stainless steel, Messermeister Elite knives are hand sharpened in a three-step process; have shortened bolsters so blades are sharp from tip to heel and a cook's forefinger rests comfortably on them; and feature classic three-rivet, full-tang, seamless polymer handles. The set consists of an 8-inch chef's knife with an extra-wide blade for smooth rocking action, a 6-inch utility knife, and a 3-1/2-inch paring knife. Made in Germany, the set comes in a padded gift box. --Fred Brack
