The Messermeister Oliva Elite 6" Reverse Scalloped Utility Knife is a straight blade with a reversed scalloped serrated edge. The reverse wavy scallops are rounded just enough to gain traction on slippery and smooth surfaces. They are also gentle enough to slice through coarsely textured food without shredding it. Each knife handle in the Oliva Elité knife line is unique and made from beautiful, Italian olive wood. No two handles are identical, making these knives truly boutique and one-of-a-kind.
