Stronger than most knives. Very rigid and stiff, which is amazing on vegetables, and works like a really big pairing knife. This is exactly the kind of job I needed it for and it functions perfectly! Another hit from Mercer.

Lindsay K. on 02/14/2017

This is an excellent knife and the price is fantastic. It is very sharp and so far is holding its edge very nicely. It is so nice I am ordering a few more in this collection. I highly recommend this product.

Beverly G. on 12/11/2018

This knife works great for slicing and dicing. It slices easily, without having to apply a lot of pressure. The blade is very sharp and the handle fits well, even with small hands. I would recommend it.

This knife is well made and heavy weight. It is very sharp and it cuts easily. The blade is firm and it stays sharp for a long time. This a great knife for any kitchen.

Jean H. on 01/19/2018

This knife is the perfect size for smaller items/tasks. It makes quick work of slicing and dicing and the non-slip grip is very comfortable to use.

Raul A. on 01/08/2016

Loved my Genesis 8" knife so much that I purchased the 6" Mercer chef's knife too. They are both good knifes and used almost every day where I work.

Gloria B. from Work on 12/11/2015

This is a great knife! We bought it for our personal use, and have used it daily since purchasing. It's heavy enough to do the tough jobs, but it doesn't fatigue you to use it. The size is just right, blade doesn't have watermarks after washing, and it's extremely sharp!

Lj H. on 09/17/2015

This line of knives from Mercer are very exceptionally priced for the quality they deliver! I currently own the Genisis 8" Chef's Knife and the Genesis 8" Usuba, both are perfectly balanced with solid weight which creates a wonderful hand feel and delivers great stability while making cuts. I use these knives for pretty much everything on a daily basis and have yet to find any complaints. While exceptionally sharp out of the box, they are also very responsive to sharpening and honing after continuous use making them just like new again. These knives are real work horses and are very reasonably priced. I DEFINITELY recommend this line of knives to anyone who needs a comfortable, sharp, and durable utility knife that is perfect for home or commercial use!

Benjamin D. from Cebo on 09/07/2014

My wife loves this mercer 6 inch forged chef knife. It has a super great quality and razor sharp edge for commercial use. I highly recommend this knife.

Tom K. from TKNY Capital, LLC on 05/22/2014

I ordered this knife a few days ago and it just arrived. It has immediately become my "go-to" knife! The handle has a solid weight to it and it cuts like a dream. I will definitely be ordering more and trying other knives from the same product line. Great job Mercer!
