Mercer: How to Clean and Store Knives

Mercer: How to Clean and Store Knives

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.

Mercer: Knife Handling

Mercer: Knife Handling

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.

Customer questions about this product

Can this knife be washed in a dishwasher?
No, hand washing with soapy water and sanitizer solution is always recommended. When placed in a dishwasher, the process will often rust and cause damage to the edges of the blade.

    knife sharp great handle blade cutting easy edge light Nakiri

    Very high quality knife for the price point. You will not find a better knife for less money...or at least I haven't Highly recommended product

    This knife is beneficial to all kitchens. It is very versatile and easy to clean. Dishwasher safe. The handle is easy to grip and the blade is sharp. It is great for cutting or slicing anything. I would recommend this.

    I don't use this knife as much as my Usaba/Nakiri Knife or Sashimi Knife, but I use it as a back up if my Sashimi knife gets dull and I don't have time to sharpen it. The blade is nice and thin, great for cutting sushi rolls and sushi veggies. I like the handle, because wearing gloves and rolling sushi makes for slippery handles. These are rubbery and have a sturdy grip.

    Great use for me! I mainly use it to cut vegetables, never anything harder than that, and after a while you will need to sharpen it, but you get a really good knife for your money and in my opinion it makes getting this knife worth it.

    This is a good knife that is holding up well with moderate use, i was worried with the lower price but it has really surprised me

    I purchased one of these at the same time I ordered the 7" nakiri with the same handle. Happily, the santoku displays the same sharpness out of the box, and the similar edge retention. The handle, just like the nakiri, has a good balance between firmness and give. It ends up being just the right amount of grip to provide a secure hold, and is comfortable to use for hours at a time. If you're looking for an inexpensive, quality santoku, you simply cannot go wrong with this offering from Mercer. You'll love it!

    I use this in my kitchen. I never had a sharp knife like this before. this blade can be sharp as long as you take care of it. light weight. love it!

    from Slick's ivystone restaurant Posted on

    You can usually put a very sharp edge on high carbon blades and with this knife, it comes pretty sharp out of the box. The knife is very light and and handles well. It is most effective for prepping veges and fruits. Holds edge decent enough and resharpens easily. Rubber handle is easy on hands although it might be a tad small for big hands. Excellent knife at bargain price.

    from zanypoet Posted on

    This knife is very light, the blade is stamped, which is to be expected. You cant expect forged blades for prices this low. The knife came out of the box razor sharp, and the rubber handle is surprisingly nice. The knife is pretty light weight, and therefore very easy to cut with. Great for veg prep!

    This seven inch santoku mercer knife is great for cutting vegetables and almost anything. The blade is nice and sharp and is great for fast cutting.

    this is an exceptional blade! holds a sharp edge for a while, but with that said it will take some extra elbow grease to get it sharp again.
