Upgrading your knife kit can seem next to impossible when you look at the pricing of some of the forged German or Japanese knives on the market. Who doesn't want forged knives, high-quality steel, great balance, and a comfortable grip? But really, who wants to spend over a hundred dollars per knife? Thanks to Mercer's new Genesis line of professional NSF-approved cutlery, you don't have to overspend to get forged German steel and all the other features that you desire. In fact, as of right now not a single knife in this line is over $30!
The German steel used in the Genesis has been independently tested to be just as durable, corrosion-resistant, and high quality as the steel used in much more expensive German knives. Mercer Genesis features one piece construction giving it a solid feel and great durability. The knives full tang gives it great balance and is surrounded by a special Santoprene handle that gives this knife superior handling whether dry, wet, or oily. This handle is incredibly comfortable--in fact, I prefer it to the Wusthof knives that I've used. Best of all, Mercer Genesis knives come with a lifetime limited warranty!
During the next several weeks, we'll be featuring Mercer knives on our WEBstaurantstore Facebook and WEBstaurantStore Pinterest pages, and we'll even be doing a few giveaways. Be sure to "Like" us and follow us and stay tuned for details!
