Bring the professional quality that you’ve come to expect from Mercer Cutlery to your commercial kitchen with this Mercer M21052 Genesis 2 1/2″ forged bird’s beak peeling knife. Each knife is designed with an ergonomic Santoprene handle to guide the one piece, fully forged, razor sharp blade for superior performance.
Also known as a tourner knife, this blade is perfect for creating intricate garnishes and precise cuts for elaborate presentations. A tourne cut is most commonly used to prepare potatoes, carrots, or squash, giving these formless vegetables a defined, blunt-ended football shape when they are being served as part of a main entree.
The Santoprene that comprises the handle is a high performance, soft material that offers a safe and comfortable non-slip grip for all day use. It will not break down when exposed to kitchen oils, and is able to withstand extreme hot and cold temperatures.
Additionally, this knife’s high carbon, traditional German no-stain steel blade features hand-polished edges that are taper ground for superior stability, easy-honing, and long-lasting sharpness. It won’t rust, corrode, or discolor. A thick bolster strengthens the knife, adds durability, and provides optimal balance for a sturdy grip. NSF Listed.
