Fast Cutting

Reach for the Carl Mertens Metz 5" Utility Knife whenever you need to slice or chop veggies, cheese, and meats. The nimble blade makes short work of meal prep tasks.

The Carl Merten's Metz 5" Utility Knife is razor-sharp and stays that way, thanks to the rust-proof X50CrMoC15 stainless steel. Handmade in Solingen, Germany. Limited lifetime warranty.

About Carl Mertens METZ

The name Metz comes from the local dialect in Solingen Germany, also known as the “City of Blades”. Every Carl Mertens Metz knife is handmade and comes with an extra broad blade made from rustproof chrome molybdenum vanadium steel. The broad blade offers more leverage to prevent fatigue while you cut. The square-shaped handle is made with oiled European walnut wood for a beautiful finish. Designed by design group SquareOne, Metz knives were inspired by Far Eastern forms, combined with the traditional German craft Carl Mertens has been using from the very beginning in 1919.

Use and Care

Cleaning: Carl Mertens Knives are not dishwasher safe and must be hand washed and dried thoroughly after every use.

Handle Care: Carl Mertens Knives are made using oiled European walnut wood. Regular oiling keeps the handle in optimal condition throughout its lifetime.

Honing and Sharpening: Regular honing is necessary to maintain a sharp cutting edge on Carl Mertens Knives. Weekly honing realigns the blade and maintains a sharp edge for longer. For sharpening, we recommend using a whetstone or sharpening steel when sharpening becomes necessary.

Cutting Surfaces: Only use cutting boards made of hinoki, wooden, bamboo, or quality polyethylene to keep Carl Mertens blades in prime condition. Avoid using cutting boards such as china, marble, granite, porcelain, stainless countertops, and glass. These surfaces could cause harm the blade.
