Home > Culinary Student Supplies > Grossmont College - Essential Skills Class
If you're taking the Essential Skills Class, you will need one of the following knife kits:

GR-Basic - The basic kit, which includes Victorinox knives. These knives are stamped from a single piece of Swiss stainless steel. They feature a molded, comfortable, Fibrox handle and are very popular with professional cooks.

GR-Recommended - This kit is the recommended kit by Chef Rossi and Chef Carlone Baker, which includes all Mercer Genesis knives. Mercer Genesis knives are made with forged German MV steel (as opposed to stamped). Each knife is one piece, full tanged with a comfortable, non-slip, Santoprene handle. This is a soft-grip material which is extremely durable.

GR-Messermeister - This kit is made up of Messermeister Meridian Elite Knives. A premier knife maker with modified bolsters, 17 degree mirror polished edges and a riveted handle. These are amongst the finest knives coming out of Solingen Germany.

GR-FDick - This kit is made up of Friedrich Dick Knives, one of the premier knife makers in Germany. This is a full-tang, forged knife similar to those included in the Mercer Genesis and Messermeister Knife Sets. Made in Germany, this set is a great value.

GR-Partial - This kit is designed to fill the holes in your collection if you purchased the Pastry Knife Kit for Chef Foran's Baking and Pastry class in a past semester.
