Customer Reviews


I bought this for my buddy who works in the restaurant business and he said that this knife is the best knife he has laid his hands on. He said that the 10" is the perfect size for any one who is constantly cutting.

Zach H. from Chugco on 07/27/2019

These knives work well. Sturdy blade, although they dull within a couple months. Since you aren't supposed to use an electric sharpener on it, I will need to take it to a professional to get them sharpened.

Kitchen from Maranatha Bible Camp on 06/22/2019

Now, this is a knife that will exceed your expectations and will last a long time. It is an exceptional knife in all aspects and can be used excessively in any commercial kitchen without damaging the blade or having the need to sharpen it often. I would highly recommend it.

Sara K. on 11/26/2018

Bought these knives at the suggestion of a former employee and I must say, he was right. They are a nice quality at a reasonable price. Use these on a daily basis, and I would highly recommend!

Gina J. from Jubilee Leadership Academy on 05/18/2018

This knife comes sharp. It is well balanced and the handle keeps it from slipping in the hand during use. The blade is a little longer than the normal knife that I use so it definitely takes some getting used to. Overall, a great knife for everyday use.

Carter J. on 03/28/2018

This is my go to knife for every day use. It is sharp as anything and is so nice to work with. It creates nice and clean cuts and has very good handling.

Clark P. on 02/21/2018

This knife is very sharp and it stays sharp. The handle is comfortable to hold and it doesn't slip from your hand. It cuts easily and it is dishwasher safe.

Jean H. on 01/19/2018

This is a fantastic knife. It's ideal at being able to chop anything, and making sure it stays chopped. It's an excellent way to save prep time.

Saxon M. from Town Square Market on 12/14/2017

This is one of the best chefs knife I ever owned not only in quality but the price is absolutely amazing !!!! Extremely sharp blade and awesome grippy handle

Mark A. on 12/06/2017

I love this knife. I think it's a perfect way to serve both home and commercial uses. I will be keeping Mercer in mind for all my knife needs.

Jaime L. from REDBAKES on 01/12/2017

Great blade, solid construction. I used it to slice cooked beef thinly with great results. As an all purpose chef knife, the full tang construction and forged steel make it durable, and I prefer the handle design to ones with bolsters.

Micah G. on 12/19/2016

This is by far my favorite knife. The length is perfect for big jobs, it holds it's edge, and is very well balanced. After reading many reviews all over the internet, I chose these for our church kitchen (partly because of the price) and ended up purchasing them for my home kitchen, I loved them so much.

Mona K. from St Anne Orthodox Church on 12/02/2016

The Mercer 10 inch Genesis chef knife is hands down the best chef knife for any kitchen chef home or at work I highly recommend it.

This knife is awesome! Mercer is a great brand, and they hit a home run with this 10" Chef's Knife! It is comfortable and well-balanced. . . and you can't beat Webstaurantstore.com's price!!

Joshua K. on 09/26/2015

I've bought a few Mercer knives and they all are working well in my kitchen. Sharp and seemingly solid, one of the better purchases I've made. Hopefully they last.

Julie C. from The Gallery Brewery LLC on 10/20/2014

This knife may be a bit light, but is perfect for the home cook on a budget as well as in a professional kitchen. I am rather small and petite and this knife is comfortable to grip and easy to handle. I am going to get one for the bakery I work at, it would be nice to have around for chopping fruit for jams and preserves, as well as slicing cheesecakes. Nice knife for the price, give it a try.

Michelle B. from Contata Voluptates on 02/08/2014

When i first lied my eyes on this amazing knife i had started in Culinary school. Was by far the most exciting time i had, this knife has helped me through a lot of cuttings. Get it! i prefer the 10", great control and sharp.

Joel M. from Reds Cafe on 01/16/2014

It is truly a thing of beauty. Quite sharp and so far, it has maintained the edge. This has become my favorite among many chef knives I have.

Muralidhara S. on 06/13/2013

This is one of the best chef's knives I have ordered. The Blade is German steel and the handle with it's non slip grip is perfect. Really very Satisfied. GREAT BUY.
