Messermeister Oliva Luxe Chef's Knife, 16cm


The Messermeister Olive Luxe chef’s knife is a multi-purpose kitchen knife that cleanly and smoothly chops meat and vegetables. This smaller 16cm blade is perfect for dicing or julienning root vegetables, as well as scoring fish and slicing meat and poultry. 

Messermeister’s Oliva Luxe knives are made of 1/4116 stainless steel, which has a high carbon content meaning they are incredibly hard wearing and resistant to corrosion. Ranking a high 57-58 on the Rockwell hardness scale, these steel knives are built to withstand the toughest demands of professional kitchens. They are hand-sharpened at a 15 degree angle giving you maximum control over your finish.

The Oliva knife is made from a single piece of fully-forged metal, with a half bolster at the base. This half bolster makes for easy chopping as the entire length of the knife remains optimally sharp, as well as aiding comfort when using. 

The Oliva range is named after the beautiful polished Italian olive wood handles the knives are made from, which have a sleek, smooth finish. 

This knife is not dishwasher safe. Hand wash in warm water and avoid cleaners containing citrus and beach to protect the delicate wood. We advise you regularly oil the wood handle with food safe mineral or rapeseed oil to prevent splitting and protect the wooden finish.
