Construction: The MAIRICO slicing knife is made of stainless steel. The blade has 11 inches of length and the handle is long and comfortable. It is made of black pakkawood and the blade itself is quite hefty, being pure steel. The handle also has three rivets that add to its overall appearance. The MAIRICO has a Granton edge – it has a row of scallops all along the blade on both sides. The full tang of the knife also boasts a thick bolster. It comes in a beautiful, cushioned box so it can also be given as a gift.
Function: The long blade of this slicing knife falls ideally between the 9-12 inches of length that one looks for in a slicing knife. It is neither too long nor too short and so works very well for slicing big roasts. The long, heavy blade of the knife is nicely balanced out by the ergonomic, black handle and it doesn’t feel awkward in your hand. The Granton edge provides air pockets so no food sticks to the blade and you don’t have to pause between every cut to wipe the blade clean. The bolster shields your fingers from the blade.
This multipurpose knife is extremely sharp and can be used to slice roasts, meats, fruits and vegetables alike.
Cleaning & Maintenance: The Granton edge keeps the knife clean, more or less, but when you are done using it, do not toss it in the dishwasher. Hand-wash with warm, soapy water, dry well and store it in the beautiful box that it comes in, as you don’t want it to rust or get nasty cuts if you were to put it in a drawer. If you take care of it well, this one will last for years.
