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.

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.

    High quality chef knife. Handle placement is very good. We were worried the rubber-type grip handle would be cheesy or cheap, but it is actually really nice, and very helpful to prevent slips. Very good chef knife. Better than my Cutco version, and MUCH better than my Dexter one.
    We bought the chef knife for cutting vegetables for our vegan food catering business. It is sharp and easy to clean and store. Our employees like them.
    Great upgrade for someone used to cheap, big box store knives. It is not the sharpest ever (and you want it to be so that the knife does the work and you minimize the chance of slipping), but for the price I am happy with my purchase. Depending on your hand size/preference, the 8" may be too large.
    Mercer knives are the best for their price and quality. Keeps a nice sharp edge from the start. Just a few swipes of the steel and sharpen properly every day. Lightweight and durable.
    So far so good. I like these for beater knives for the chefs. They do a good job keeping sharp and seem to be a good brand so far.
    This is made better than I expected. The handle fits well in my hand and is comfortable to hold. The blade is very sharp! It doesn't need to be sharpened that often, even with a lot of use. I would definitely purchase this again.
    Absolutely nothing can beat this knife, for the money. Sliced some celery within seconds, nice clean, even cut, every time. The rubberized handle is comfortable, and is perfectly designed to fit all hand types, even mine which are very large. The only "Con" I have is that part of the Mercer Insignia Washed off with a little scrubbing fairly quickly. I can still see it when I angle my knife to catch the light just right, but honestly, Don't care. Compared to every other knife I have ever owned this is by far the best Knife I have.
    Purchased for use in a commercial setting. We normally use Victoronix but decided to give these a try. It holds up well and holds its edge well also. Quality knife for the price.
    This knife is so sharp! So be careful. It's well made and sturdy. It makes chopping vegetables so easy and clean up is a breeze also!
    I will forever purchase mercer knives from webstaurant because they are just that good. They are inexpensive, easy to use, sharp and easy to resharpen when they start getting dull.
    I am satisfied with the purchase of this chef knife for my kitchen . The steel blade and the durable handle make this a no brained
    This is an awesome chef knife! It can withstand a lot of use and it a great choice for any restaurant. It is well made and it lasts a long time.
    This chef knife is really good at being able to get all sorts of prep work done. The length is ideal, it's both functional and easy to wield
    This is an excellent knife for the price! Highly recommend it for a home or commercial establishment. I think that you could get two, alternate, and not need another knife for a decade!
    Mercer makes good knives and this isn't an exception. It is a great price for what I got. It is sturdy and a nice size for smaller amounts of food that I need to chop.
    Had to get this 8" chefs knife to go with the st of the mercer millennia knive I've got .have to admit I'm a huge fan of Victorinox but Mercer knives are awesome too
    This knife really helps me cut herbs into tiny little pieces to put in soups for when my kids are sick . And the good thing is they don't know about it
    Awesome Knife, great quality, Blade stays sharp for a good amount of time between sharpening, Great quality for the price compared to some other knives out there!
    I LOVE THIS KNIFE. I was using a knife of another brand before buying this knife and this one is so much better. The handle makes controlling this knife easy. It has a non-slip feel to it and is very comfortable. Highly recommend!
    My first non cheap knife block knife and this knife is my new favorite kitchen item. The knife effortlessly slices through anything i have thrown at it. The handle is very nice and strong. Overall this knife is a tremendous value.
