Vegan Kitchen Tools
Messermeister Knives
When searching for replacement sharpening dowels for the Chantry Knife Sharpener, I found a knife company that I'd never heard about, Messermeister. For me, Wusthof was my first choice for the last 25 years, but as knowledge increases, my Wusthof's have had to move over for my new Messermeister Knives.

My new Messermeister Knives provide me with perfect balance in my hand and cut like Samurai swords through anything I want to slice, dice, or mince. Many of you have asked, "What knives should I purchase?" Well, here are my picks for knives in a vegan kitchen.

HINT: Don't try to save money when it comes to purchasing knives. If finances are a problem, save for one knife and buy it. Keep saving and buying until you've created a full knife wardrobe for your vegan kitchen!




Messermeister Mu Fusion 6.5" Damascus Santoku Knife
Messermeister Mu Fusion 6.5 Santoku Knife The new Messermeister Mu Fusion Damascus Santoku Knife is the quintessential kitchen utensil for cutting vegetables and herbs. The weight is perfect for my feminine hands and handles like a dream!

The Messermeister Mu Fusion 6.5" Damascus Santoku Knife, also known as a Japanese Chef’s Knife, is a wide blade knife with an overall thinner spine and taper than a French or German style Chef’s Knife. The thin taper (or blade thickness) is lengthened to give it maximum precision when slicing. The Santoku Knife is one of the worlds most popular knives.The spine runs parallel to the relatively flat cutting edge, which has a bolsterless heel and only curves near the tip to create a broad bladed knife similar in shape to a cleaver.

Usage
• The word Santoku translates as “3 good things,” which means it is versatile like a chef’s knife and cuts vegetables, fish and meat.

Messermeister Mu Fusion Damascus Santoku Knife Features
• Made in Seki, Japan
• One-piece, fully stamped
• 15 degree precision edge
• Closed bolster collar
• Extra-wide chef's knife blade
• High carbon, molybdenum vanadium steel
• Satin finish blade
• Linen textured resin handle
• 58 rockwell hardness

How to Care for Messermeister Mu Fusion Knives
The correct kitchen knife simplifies and speeds-up food preparation. Knives must be well-sharpened and made of first-rate steel to insure razor-sharp cuts for the foods being prepared.

The Blades
The blade of Mu Knives is made of the finest high-carbon Molybdenum Vanadium Steel that provides an extended and sharper cutting performance.

The Handles
The handle of Mu Knives is strongly compressed laminated-linen and which is made of a synthetic material known for its strength, hardness, and resistance.

How to Care for Messermeister Mu Japanese Knives
Do NOT wash Mu Knives in the dishwasher... or any knife!
Strong detergents and heat will damage the handle and the steel blade.

Hand wash knives in warm water and dry carefully after every use.

Do NOT leave Mu Knives to soak in water… rinse and dry immediately after use.

Do NOT cut hard materials.

Slice, dice, mince or cut on a wooden or plastic cutting board… avoid marble or glass cutting boards or surfaces.

Keep all knives out of the reach of children.

It is natural for the compressed laminated-linen handles to show wear over time and with frequent use.

Messermeister Kullenschliff Santoku Knife
Messermeister Kullenschliff Santoku Knife
When I first experienced the Messermeister Kullenschliff Santoku Knife, the weight and fit in my hand made all of my other knives seem like toys. This knife blade is like a Samurai sword, shaper than any knife I've owned or handled in a kitchen setting.

As for the cost, it's a little pricey, but worth every dollar invested. It holds its sharpness unlike any of my other knives and makes cutting, chopping and slicing a dream come true!!

The 7” Kullenschliff Santoku Knife, essentially an Asian Chef's Knife, is an enhanced version of the regular Santoku because of its alternating kullenschliffs along the blade.

Meridian Elite knives have a comfortable, traditional styled handle that is riveted to a full tang.

Messermeister Knives have the sharpest edges of all forged cutlery. An elaborate 3 step sharpening process is enhanced in its final step by being carefully hand-polished. Meridian Elite knives are hardened to 56 Rockwell hardness C, making them hard enough to hold their edge for a long period of time, while it is easy to restore their edge with a steel.

Messermeister is a company whose mission has always been to manufacture the finest forged cutlery available.

Mundial Knife Storage for Drawers
Mundial Solid Wood In-Drawer Knife Storage Tray
I don't know about you, but I have a SMALL Kitchen, so keeping my knives in a wooden block takes up too much of my valuable kitchen counter real estate. In my previous kitchen I had magnetic bars on the wall, but alas, this kitchen lacks enough wall space beneath the cabinets to install magnetic knife holder bars. But I do have lots of drawers, so I purchased two of these wooden drawer trays to hold ALL my VALUABLE knives. This drawer storage works perfectly and every blade is safe and the knives are easy to select and replaced.

The tray features two wave-shaped tiers that holds up to 15 knives. The top tier has slots for smaller knives with six inches in length or less. The lower tier holds six knives and a sharpening steel, all up to ten inches in length. If your drawer is narrower, there is a smaller model available. This unit measures 17 by 8-1/2 by 2 inches, and fits most standard kitchen drawers.

Mundial Product Features
2-tiered wooden drawer tray safely stores favorite knives
Lower tier holds 6 knives and 1 sharpening steel, up to 10 inches in length
Top tier holds 8 smaller knives up to 6 inches in length
Tray measures 17 by 8-1/2 by 2 inches, fits most drawers
Hand-finished, solid wood for durability

Recommendation
BUY the Mundial Solid Wood In-Drawer Knife Storage Tray, Large
