    Mercer Carving 8" knife

    The sharpest knife I have used and could not be more happy! This sliced right through a thick (approximately 1 1/4") piece of meat with no issue at all. We have been in the need of a good knife and this blew our expectation away. We will most definitely be ordering more knives from Mercer. You will not be disappointed.

    I use this knife all the time for larger pieces of meat, veggies and even bread. It gets the job done with ease. We use one of the cutting boards and these knives keep their sharp edge well.

    from Floral Creations Posted on

    Love the size, a lot easier to handle than the long 11" slicing knive. Very controllable with a nice hefty handle. Comes super sharp and ready to cut.

    I purchased this 8" carving knife and a 3 1/2" paring knife last month - both Mercer Genesis collection. I am now purchasing several more sizes as I am so pleased with the quality. The knives are well balanced and just feel good in my hand. The handles have a nice grip (no slip). I highly recommend these knives.
