Mercer Culinary M20000 Genesis 6-Piece Forged Knife Block Set, Tempered Glass Block
Upon receiving a request to check out the Mercer culinary M20000 Genesis I learned of one of the most exciting knife sets available, here is my review. For chefs and cooks who take preparing food seriously Mercer is a new knife name on the block (excuse the pun), they are a German company who believe in efficiency when cooking and exceptional design quality to create a product perfect for anyone regardless of skill in the kitchen.
Included in the Mercer Culinary M20000 Genesis 6-Piece Forged Knife Block Set, Tempered Glass Block;
3-1/2-inch paring, 5-inch utility, 8-inch chef’s, 8-inch bread, 6-inch boning, and glass knife block.
Glass knife block
The first thing I noticed about this knife set was that the housing block for the knives was completely different to the norm. It comes with glass housing so you can see the blades even when they are stored as opposed to most competitors that use a wooden block. This adds a unique style especially to a modern kitchen through the contemporary design. Which really sets it apart.
Santoprene nonslip handles with excellent comfort and safety
Another notable difference between the Mercer Culinary M20000 Genesis and other knife sets is the material that is used to create the handle. The handles are full tang ensuring they are durable and the knife will be comfortable and well-balanced when you hold it. Santoprene is used in many manufacturing processes to keep a natural aesthetic look while reducing weight, also the material is fully recyclable which shows that Mercer care for the environment.
The knives are fully forged with high carbon stainless material from German components crafted in Taiwan using European technology offering the best value for forged blade cutlery available.
The cut you get from these is 2nd to none and Amazon users clearly agree with 84% of customers giving five-star rating, the only complaint I could find was that the knives tend to go dull after time, but of course that’s to be expected!
If you have never indulged in a good quality knife set before you certainly will not be disappointed in the quality of the Mercer Culinary M20000 Genesis 6-Piece Forged Knife Block Set Tempered Glass Block will give you. They are genuinely beautiful knives to look at from the Mercer emblem to the elegant glass housing unit, this set is worth every penny.
