The Messermeister Avanta steak knife is a 5″ great edge slicing and carving knife with an upswept boning pointer. This upward curved pointer is designed to help in separating meat from the bone. The slowly cambered long blade is most effective at pull cutting through boneless areas of meat. The knife blade is constructed from German high carbon stainless steel, which creates and holds a sharper edge and the handle is made of lovely and long lasting pakkawood. This affordable steak knife set is made in China.
