Mercer: Knife Handling

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.

Mercer: How to Clean and Store Knives

Mercer: 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 Culinary M20050 Details

This Mercer Culinary M20050 6-piece forged knife block set from the Genesis® line makes a versatile and valuable addition to any kitchen! The forged Santoprene that comprises the handles of the Genesis® blades is a high performance, soft material that offers a safe and comfortable non-slip grip for all day use. Plus, the handles will not break down when exposed to kitchen oils and are able to withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures. The blades are made from high carbon German steel that won't stain, no matter what foods you are cooking. With hand-polished, tapered edges you can count on each blade for easy-honing, long-lasting sharpness, and durability as they won't rust, corrode, or discolor.

The included knife block boasts a sleek modern look and is made from beech wood and tempered glass. It won't take up much counter space, yet has plenty of room to hold the 5 included knives so you always have every tool you need right at your fingertips. With such a modern look, this set is also great for use in food demos or front-of-house displays as you can show off not only your cooking skills, but your cooking utensils as well!
