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.
    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.
    great quality and very sharp knife. Holds its sharpness for a long time. have different colors to go with each cutting board . This helps prevent cross contamination
    This is an excellent knife for cutting just about anything. The handle is very comfortable to hold and your hands will not slip off. It is easy to clean and the blade doesn't need to be sharpened often. I would purchase this again.
    Stunning way to provide buffet guests with an easy way to serve them self. They are scratch resistant and hold up to a good washing I would recommenced getting the full case.
    This is an excellent knife for restaurant use. The handle is comfortable to hold and it doesn't slip from your hand. The blade is sharp and firm. This is great for color coding in any restaurant.
    These are very nice knives and after having purchased a few and worked with them for months, I purchase more. They don't stain or rust, and the sharpness actually holds up surprisingly well. We take our knives to be professionally sharpened when they get dull, but after about 6 months of use, these haven't needed it yet!
    This 10" chefs knife has a great out of the box edge, and sharpens very well using the mercer triple diamond sharpener. We have been very happy with the strength and durability of the knife so far. Excellent addition to our meat kitchen.
    I really enjoy the bold red color of the handle but the quality of this product is impressive compared to it's price. It's a knife that should be in every kitchen,
    These Mercer knives are phenomenal. Mercer first won me over when I bought the blue option in their Millennia line. I since changed the color of my kitchen since I purchased those. so I purchased the red ones to go along with my kitchen. These knives are razor sharp right out of the package and I love that. I will definitely not hesitate to buy Mercer knives in the future. I will also definitely recommend them.
    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!
    Great long blade knife. Perfect for dicing and chopping. We use 3 different color handles in our restaurant and the knifes always stay in the right station. now. Comes with a nice sharp edge.
    the knife came as sharp as could be, we originally bought it just for the health department to match cutting boards with color coded knives, but will buy more in the future.
    These knives are well built, very well balanced and hold an edge for a long time. These 10" knives are bigger then most jobs call for but the quality of the knife is great! A+
    I have bought several of these knives and will continue to do so. Very sharp and hold an edge well. Perfectly balanced and easy to clean.

    I really had to search to find such a long bladed knife with color-coded handles. We use the yellow, the red, and the green ones in our kitchen and we love them.
    Great knife for daily use and has stayed sharp for a couple months now with light sharpening. Color handles help and would suggest this for all types of use.
    Good knife, stays sharp if treated well. Recommend professional sharpening from time to time. Good utility kitchen knife. Better than some knives from leasing companies.
    The Mercer MIllennia Primary Chef's Knife with Red Handle is great! It stays sharp and is easy to clean. Plus the red handle looks chic and keeps it from getting lost.
