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.

    We use the color coded handles to organize our kitchen and keep certain colors in specific sections. Great quality for the price for the average kitchen use.
    This is my go-to chef knife. The handle color is great for color coding in any commercial kitchen. The blade is very sharp and it stays sharp for a long period of time. I would highly recommend it.

    I have so many of this company's knives. I love them so much! Super Super sharp, easy to clean and hone. Look and feel great and you can't beat the price! Get these knives, you wont be sorry!
    I sought out a cheaper alternative to the Victorinox line for a low-budget cooking student. These fit the bill nicely; they seem to hold an edge okay and the bolster was comfortable to work with.
    Among the most versatile of chefs knives on the market, this knife holds its edge and sharpens quite well. It has been a valuable addition to our dairy kitchen. Would definitely recommend.
    This knife has a really good grip . And it is really sharp and good for cutting hard things. Because it is sharp you have to be careful washing knifes like this
    I like that Eragon Damocles shaped handle and the Comfort fits of the handle. I've been using it for a while now and yet to see any tarnished spots.
    I like that the Mercer M22608BL Millennia 8" Chef Knife is available in a blue handle. The blue can be color coded to only be used on seafood.
    I love all the knives in the Mercer Millenia line. We color code our kitchen so the color options come in handy and save us from having to use spray paint or a label! This chef knife is nicely weighted and I love the handle grips.
    This Mercer Millennia 8 inch Chef Knife with Blue Handle is wonderful. It has stayed sharp and it is useful for many jobs in the kitchen.
    our prep LOES this new knife. color coated for easy use and safe food prep. have since bought another set, as the line kept taking the preps. love these!
    Perfect semi nice, chef knife. Not quite the cheapest thing available on the market, but it's a grade above. Mercer brand cutlery has always shown to last a long time. I hope this knife will too.
    Love Love Love this knife. Weight balance is good. Comfortable grip handle and very sharp. Nice 8 inch for all task in our restaurant. We will by buying more Mercer knives.
    This is a great knife for the price! I was using a sharpening service for 25 years and finally decided to buy my own knives. This is a better knife than what they were bringing me and I pay once and it's mine. I highly recommend this knife! I even bought 2 more.
    World's sharpest kitchen knife ever. I will always have one of these in my kitchen. Thank you WEBstaurant Store for the quality of this listing.
    I really like this knife. It is the perfect size for pretty much any task and the handle is very sturdy and comfortable to use. The knife itself is sharp and of good quality.
    Good solid and comfortable handle. Durable and easy to sharpen with the steel. We were also able to get different color handles for the different sides of our Kosher kitchen so that is always a plus!
    Great Construction! Weight is perfect for use in the kicthen, durible yet lightweight and easy to handle. Pricing is perfect for the item requested. PERFECT!
    I like the color choices I have. it helps with having the prep crews take care of there own knives If i see them laying around or just dropped in the dish room I know who it belongs to.
    VERY good knife at any price. The handle is strong and the overall weight is light, yet balanced nicely. It holds an edge and is thin enough to cut tomatoes.
    Definitely a must buy! stays sharp for a long time, easy to use and different colored handle to use on only certain foods. I will be purchasing many more, and different colors soon.
    Grill cook uses this knife to cut chicken, slice tomatoes, cube cheeses, and sandwich halving. All around great use and comfortable grip with colors help to keep them separate.
    These are some of the best knifes we have ever used, and the price is perfect for beginning chefs. We have tons of knife in our shop, these totally stand out. I Have personally bought the entire set for both work and personal use, and plan on buying more.
    Great knife for the price. Had to replace a few and this one was on sale. Glad we chose this one, and the color coded handles stop cross contamination.
    Fantastic knife! It's hard to find a good knife that holds a sharp edge, and even harder to find one comfortable enough that you want to use it all the time. I grab this knife over any of my knives that cost 5x as much because it's just a joy to use and so easy to control.
    These are great basic knives. Handles are easy to grip and stay firm in your hand, even when wet. The blades sharpen easily and hold an edge fairly well. Size is nice and I can not say anything bad about them. They are not the heaviest knives but do their job and are comfortable to use all day long.
