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.

    High quality chef knife. Handle placement is very good. We were worried the rubber-type grip handle would be cheesy or cheap, but it is actually really nice, and very helpful to prevent slips. Very good chef knife. Better than my Cutco version, and MUCH better than my Dexter one.

    Great knife

    So far, this knife has been wonderful to use. It has a nice weight to it and it's been great for cutting cakes/dough strips/fruits, etc. Nice handle with a good grip to hold onto.

    Maybe the best knife I've used in a long time and at a price that is very good to the budget. Very sharp and holds its sharpness even in restaurant

    from Village grill and more Posted on

    The Mercer knife handle is easy to hold. I love the grip. Your hands definitely wont slip. This knife is very sharp and the price is reasonable. It's also stainless steel. Feels like it was made from quality steel. I highly recommend this knife.

    I use these knives for my sharpening service they have a nice profile that does not get thick after a few sharpenings also good height at heel to keep you safe when chopping close to the heel, Highly recommended decent edge retention for a stamped knife.

    from cincy sharp Posted on

    Perfect Chef knife for the price. Lightweight but not too light the blade has a good thickness to it and the handle comfortable and non-slip.

    Posted on

    Overall a good knife. Its keeps its edge well, but its fairly light weight. Excellent for vegetables, but the cooks like a heavier knife for meats.

    Posted on

    By far my favorite that I bought, great for dicing and slicing pretty much anything. Had a hefty handle making it easy to control. Will definitely buy a backup.

    Chef knife

    Works great and stays sharp for a long time. Handle is easy to use and comfortable to hold. This is important as I have arthritis in my hands. Makes chopping veggies much easier.

    from Sparky's Cantina Posted on

    This is a good quality chef and kitchen knife, it's sharp too. Every kitchen should have a few of these, Mercer is a high quality manufacturer that produces professional use culinary utensils, the price is outstanding for this knife also.

    from FRANK DIEGUEZ Posted on

    This knife is made of good quality steel and comes pretty sharp. The handle is made of both black plastic and black grippy rubber which feels nice in the hand.

    The Mercer 8" Chef's Knife works great. It carries a solid, sharp edge and takes to honing and sharpening well enough. It is sturdy and holds up to the stresses of the kitchen.

    Posted on

    I've used this knife everyday for the past 6 months and love it. No knife I've ever owned has been as sharp or stayed sharp as long as this one. Recently it has gone missing from work and I've had to use the ones the restaurant owns and can not complete my work in time, do to the constant dulling, causing me to need to sharpen the knives continuasly, taking up precious time, so I'm back to get another Mercer Millennia 8" chef knife to make my job easier. I will never use another brand again.

    Love this knife! It is a great medium sized knife. It is very sharp, surprisingly sturdy, and somewhat heavy (perfect weight for this size knife). I cannot believe this knife is such great quality at such a low price.

    Great knife for the price and very sharp. We actually ordered a knife set by the same manufacturer from another company and I am happy with the quality of their Mercer's products.

    Just what we were looking forward. It has a nice and firm grip on it. The blade stays sharp and has good weight on it.
