The entire blade of the Messermeister Oliva Elite Stealth Chef's Knife has been ground down to a thin profile to create one sharp German chef’s knife! The Elite Stealth Chef's Knife is the thinnest, sharpest Messermeister Chef’s knife. The blade is shaped so that it can peel, trim, slice, dice, chop, mince, vegetables, fillet fish and cut meat. Each part of the knife is designed to perform a different task. It is the flagship of cutlery. Each knife handle in the Oliva Elite knife line is unique and made from beautiful, Italian olive wood. No two handles are the identical, making these knives truly boutique and one-of-a-kind.
