Product Description

This is a hard to find Messermeister Park Plaza Carbon 8" chef's knife.  This knife has a great profile - it's a little taller in the belly than Japanese blades but lighter and more nimble than most German knives.  It's got an 8" blade of C75W Cr steel (about 58 HRC) with a full tang, 13.25" overall length, brass rivets, a surprisingly comfortable POM handle and it's made in Germany.  It's used but should be a great knife for years.  I bought it new less than 6 months ago and it has been used very lightly in a home kitchen. Blade is dead straight, no chips or dings - never been dropped or allowed to rust, no sharpening marks.   I experimented a little with different forced patinas and faded out the Messermeister logo in the process - it's still there, but almost impossible to see.  The last picture is just to illustrate what it looked like new.  The choil and spine have been polished and the edge has been set to about a 15º angle as opposed to the 20º it came with - as a result it's really sharp, incredibly easy to sharpen and still holds an edge.  - retailed at about $80. This is a great intro to carbon knives - it's not as hard and brittle as most other carbon knives, so it's a little more durable.  It's also super easy to sharpen & the edge is simple to maintain with just a ceramic rod or a strop.  It's also a great blade for a re-handling project - not that there is anything wrong with the existing handle, but a nice wood handle would look amazing.
