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.

    knife sharp knives bread hard Mercer price serrated brands handle
    Very good blade for this price range. Sharp out of the box and easy to keep sharp. The handle is heavy duty and fits nicely in your hand.
    I have two regrets. 1) I did not buy this sooner. 2) I did not buy an extra for gift around me. Different brands give this knife a different name: sausage, tomato, bagel, serrated utility. For me, this is my kitchen's grunt. I want to preserve my wonderful bread knife's fine edge for bread only (Wüsthof Classic 4151), and postpone sharpening of my chef knife by not putting it to cut stone-hard stuff like melons and squash. This knife fits the bill. Anything nasty in the kitchen goes to that knife, and it becomes fun. This, against watermelon, is so good it is almost laughable. The Mercer Renaissance series is in comparable to other classic knives. It costs a fraction of the price. What's the catch? Some say not the same quality of finish. The main difference I can think of is that the modern brand is sharpened at 14° each side, while Mercer are usually 20° each side, which is the old European standard. This means it is sharp, though not evil sharp. The trade-off is that it should keep its edge longer. In the particular case of this knife, it is a good thing, because sharpening serrated knives is not a trivial thing (few bother, I heard), so it should keep it in a serviceable condition for a long time. It's hard to find a reliable professional knife sharpener these days. Hard to find one that does serrated knives. Harder to get both at once. Other than that, Mercer Renaissance and my other brand are the exact same steel type. This is a full tang knife, and weight balance is wonderful. The tip is sharp. My take is that this belongs in your kitchen if you don't feel being mean to your bread knife or chef knife. Give all your hatred to this knife, and it will take it! This item, alone, at such a good price, makes the shipping well worth it compared to similar knives you find in retail stores around you. Read Less Read More
