The Messermeister Meridian Elite carving knife is a long and razor-sharp kitchen knife. It's ideal for cutting slices of meat or sushi. The long blade enables you to cut in long, smooth strokes. Because the blade is low and dimpled, slices won't stick to the blade so easily. This means you can easily cut thin slices without tearing them. The sharp tip is perfect for small, delicate tasks such as removing tendons or fat from pieces of meat.
