Messermeister Oliva Elité 9″ Scalloped Bread Knife
The Messermeister Oliva Elite 9" Bread Knife has a scalloped edge with a gentle camber. Serrations on this knife's scalloped edge produce smooth, clean and precise cuts whether you're slicing bread or soft-skinned fruits and vegetables. Slice through breads with fewer crumbs and minimal compression; cut perfectly thin slices of ripe summer tomatoes with no tearing.
Messermeister, meaning “knife master”, remains one of the few cutlery companies in the world to produce hammer forged knives the tried-and-true way in Solingen, Germany. After emigrating from Germany to the United States by way of Australia, founder Bernd Dressler combined his respect and interest in high quality cutlery with a desire to reconnect with his countrymen by collaborating with and learning from a 4th generation knife making family in Germany. Now a women-owned, California-based company Messermeister (meaning “knife master”) is committed to delivering sustainable best-in-class chef knives, kitchen accessories and award-winning culinary tools, sourcing the world to find the very best manufacturing quality at the right price for the market. Located in the heart of Ojai, California, Messermeister is now led by Dressler’s wife Debra and daughters Kirsten and Chelcea, who continue the second generation company’s mission to bring innovation and creativity to kitchens around the world.
