East Meets West… ZüM™ Cutlery from Mercer Culinary

February 2017, Ronkonkoma, NY – The new ZüM™ cutlery from Mercer Culinary blends high quality European blade design with an elegant Eastern style handle. The combination creates sleek elegance and unbelievable performance.

Blades are crafted from precision forged, high-carbon no-stain German steel, for exceptional sharpness and superior edge retention. A full tang extending the entire length of the handle along with a shortened bolster offers excellent balance. In addition, the shortened bolster allows for easy honing. The molded Delrin® handle is incredibly comfortable and durable.

The ZüM line includes 11 items, providing a knife for almost any kitchen task. Available as open stock, seven and ten piece sets in storage cases, six piece knife block sets, or five piece sets paired with a choice of three different style magnetic boards the line has something to suit the needs of any professional culinarian.

Mercer Culinary will be showcasing ZüM cutlery at NAFEM, booth #1079.
