Oliva Elite German Cutlery
Oliva Elité knife collection by Messermeister boasts an exquisite natural, Mediterranean olive wood handle in the popular straight tang, forged knife line series. The highly figured, beautiful golden-brown handle provides a secure ergonomic pinch grip with an unsurpassed balance. The blade, bolster and tang are one piece, hot-drop hammer forged from a single billet of the finest German 1.4116 steel alloy and heat treated and cooled to achieve a Rockwell
of 57-58. The 15° Elité edge is hand stropped on a cloth wheel, creating the sharpest possible cutting surface on an edged tool. Oliva Elité knives are of heirloom quality and one of the best original forged wood handle knives.
