The Messermeister Meridian Elite Steak Knife is a 4.5 personal sized carving knife that comes with either a fine edge or multi-edge. This steak knife is expertly crafted and has a slicing blade with an upward curved tip. The main cutting edge on this steak knife is used to slice individual portions of meat. The grip can vary but the knife is usually pulled rather than pushed through the meat. The benefit of the fine-edged blade is that it can be conveniently sharpened from heel to tip. While the benefit of the multi-edge blade is that the saw teeth provide added cutting power in the tip when separating meat from the bone.
