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.

    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!
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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!!
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
