|A Forged knife is only as good as the steel and the workmanship that goes into its creation. Fine steel requires the proper combination of carbon, silicon, sulfur, chromium, and carbon tool steel. The alloys are properly proportioned to achieve the long-lasting, easy-to-restore edge Messermeister has become famous for. The finishing work, such as the double tapering and fitting of handles, is done entirely by hand. Their finished products are among the world's finest quality professional knives.
The Elité and San Moritz are guaranteed to be the sharpest forged knife available. They offer the following qualities: A 15 degree re-sharpening angle, instead of the traditional German 20 degree, a mirror-polished edge gently tapered up the blade, and Krupp 41/16 High Carbon/Molybdenum/Vanadium steel alloy.
Messermeister offers a Lifetime Guarantee against any manufacturer defects. This guarantee does not cover any damage from normal wear and tear or misuse of the products.
