Razor sharp! I love Meridian blades – in fact my favorite knife in my kitchen is one of their blades that I’ve had for years and years. This one is a a reversed angle slicer with an 8” inch blade, full tang, triple riveted hard wood handles (scales), and a nice polished blade. Fully restored and ready for use. Meridian was a Connecticut knife maker who made blades in Meridian, CT from 1855 to 1916, at which point they were purchased by Landers, Frary and Clark who used that name until 1924.

*High carbon steel knives are highly sought after knives loved by professional and home cooks alike due to the quality of the steel, the edge it maintains and the hardness that is not matched by other knives. If you don’t believe me, take a look the opinions of Alton Brown. Please note these are NOT stainless steel knives, they do require a little bit of care (prompt washing and drying after use, occasional sharpening, etc), but hey, if you can maintain a cast iron pan you’ll find this a piece of cake. Over time they will develop a patina, and even stain. But they are probably the best quality steel knives you’ll ever use.
