Royale Elité combines a beautiful American Walnut Burl handle to a fine German stainless steel blade. Walnut burl features a rich brown flared pattern and is prized for its hard and strong characteristic as a handle material. The blade is one piece, hot-drop hammer forged from German 1.4116 stainless carbon alloy and heat treated and cooled to achieve a Rockwell of 57-58. The three-step, 15° Elité edge is hand stropped on a cloth wheel, creating the sharpest possible cutting surface on an edged tool. This vintage style knife is one-of-a-kind and sure to become a treasured family heirloom.
The chef’s knife is the workhorse in every kitchen. You will gravitate to this knife and will find yourself using it for 90% of all your cutting tasks. The Messermeister Royale Elité Stealth Chef’s Knife has a hand forged Stealth blade that is about 25% thinner and 10% lighter than our traditional chef’s knife. It has been ground down to a thin profile to create a razor sharp edge. You can chop, slice, dice and mince your way through extended cutting tasks without fatigue.
