Absolutely love these knives. Remember to teach your kitchen staff about proper knife handling and sharpening. These knives will last a lifetime if they are properly taken care of.

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.

The Mercer 8" chef knife is perfect size for any kind of prep work. They are easy to keep sharp, the handle design makes sure you have a nice grip on the knife, and the color coded handles are very helpful when it comes to food safety.

My employees love this knife for prep work. It comes very sharp and it doesn't need to be sharpened often. These knives are great for color coding in any commercial restaurant.

Sara K. on 11/12/2018

Wicked sharp knife. We use it daily for prep work. It holds up super well with a weekly sharpening. I am a firm believer that the 8inch knife is the perfect size for general prep work.

Jesse H. from Baxter Brewpub LLC on 10/07/2018

This knife became dull very quickly after purchase. Even with attempts to sharpen it never quite gets sharp enough. I wish we had spent the extra money on a better product.

Michele R. from Heritage Bread Co on 07/31/2018

These knives were purchased for a kids cooking camp. They were of great quality and very sharp. Definitely order the blade covers to go with them.

Lori T. on 07/27/2018

This knife is very strong. I like that it stays sharp for a long time. The handle is very comfortable and it comes in different colors

Diana G. on 05/24/2018

This is one of my most favorite knives. I needed something that would stand out because I kept losing mine in the commercial kitchen, that or someone kept stealing my knife. I am happy to say this one is easy to spot. It holds up to being honed several times a day if I am using it for cutting meat.

Cheryl F. on 05/18/2018

This is a great commercial knife. It has a firm and sharp blade and it is easy to clean. The handle is comfortable to hold. It is an excellent choice for color coding in any commercial kitchen.

Jean H. on 01/18/2018

Love this company's knives so much. I will only buy these for the rest of my life. Extremely sharp, easy to keep clean and comfortable grips.

Matthew H. from Country Dog on 12/28/2017

These knives are surprisingly sharp and hold their sharpness for quite a long time before becoming dull. For the price, I think they are a real steal. I've purchased several!

Leah W. on 07/15/2017

I lovw this knife! We use it at our biggest pizzaria as also at the smaller one. The color handle help keep the meat and vegetable knifes separated.

Mari from Heights Pizza on 07/08/2017

Mercer knives are the best knives for the price. They are very sharp and I have never had to sharpen them in the whole year I have had them and I use them every day.

Todd R. from Todd's Kitchen Of Comfort Food on 06/14/2017

Very good quality knife . I don't like my chicken shredded so I usually chop it into tiny little bite size pieces. This knife has helped me so much with that job

Lalit P. from Foxland Market on 05/17/2017

I love these Mercer Millennia knives, definitely going to get the entire line of red handled knives. It's great to have the color coding for different uses, prevents cross contamination.

Person O. on 12/31/2016

I like to use dedicated knives for cutting of beef. For me the Mercer M22608RD Millennia 8" Chef Knife with Red Handle allows for me to visually see which is my beef knife.

Lauren K. on 12/27/2016

Love these knives - they are the perfect size and we use them for all of out everyday dicing, slicing and chopping needs. Recommend getting them with the blade guards too! Cheap and easy.

Ariel R. on 09/17/2016

I use these for vegetable fermentation workshops and they are sharp and work well. I have been using Mercer blades for years and recommend them over the more expensive brands.
