Whether you are chopping, slicing, or mincing fruits, vegetables, or meats, this knife's razor-sharp, taper-ground edge is sure to get the job done.

Ergonomic Handle

An ergonomically-shaped Delrin handle is made of crystalline plastic for low moisture absorption, chemical resistance, and maximum strength. This handle guides the razor sharp blade for superior performance.

Full Tang

The full tang design extends the blade the entire length of the handle for exceptional balance and strength. A full tang allows for elevated safety and reduced risk of injury for a safer, more reliable chef knife.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What is VG-10?
VG-10 is incredibly durable, high end stainless steel with a high carbon content that is made in Japan. This steel features 1% carbon content; which is double the carbon content of some other forged steel blades. VG-10 is commonly referred to as a "super-steel" material because of its overall strength and incredible edge sharpness. Additionally, it's about half the weight of German steel.
Can this knife be washed in a dishwasher?
No, hand washing with soapy water and sanitizer solution is always recommended. When placed in a dishwasher, the process will often rust and cause damage to the edges of the blade.

Mercer: How to Clean and Store Knives

Watch this video to learn how to clean and store knives.

Place the blade of the knife on the flat surface with the edge facing away from your body. Flip the knife and wipe the other side of the blade as well. Dip the knife in the solution and then take it out. Using a cloth soaked in the hot water solution, scrub the blade of the knife. Do it very lightly to prevent scratches. After you have removed visible dirt from the blade of your knife, clean the handle with soapy water. Rinse the knife thoroughly under running water. Dry the knife by using a clean dishtowel. Wash kitchen knives immediately after using them so that the food does not dry on their blades. It is never accepted to place your knife in a drawer without a plastic guard. Make sure that knives lying on flat surfaces are never covered with towels or napkins. After handling a knife, lay it down in a clear area with the blade and point away from the body and away from the edge of the table or cutting area. A knife guard is a rigged plastic sleeve that fully encloses the blade. A glass knife block sits on the counter offering convenient access when working and when safely putting knives away. A magnetic bar is a wall mounted magnetic bar design to hold knives firmly in place.

Mercer: Knife Handling

Watch this video to learn how to properly hold a knife

Grasp the knife by the handle allowing your thumb and index finger to rest on the blade for support. Before handling a knife, put a light to medium duty cut resistant glove on the hand opposite of the hand that holds the knife. The glove will stay on the hand until the knife has been cleaned and properly stored. Use the right knife for the right job. Keep it sharp.

    Gyutos German fragile fatter entirely edge cutting chef's butternut blade

    Gyutos often have a reputation as being more fragile than a normal chef's knife, but this isn't entirely true. The M16125 holds an edge well, and the blade is relatively thin, so there isn't as much resistance when cutting. I tried using it on tough ingredients such as butternut squash, and it worked better than the typical fatter German style knives.
