Mercer Cutlery Introduces Empire, Cutlery for the Performance Obsessed

Mercer Cutlery proudly introduces Empire, a Western styled, Japanese designed line of precision, high quality cutlery, created with the performance obsessed professional chef in mind.  

With blades crafted of a San-Mai VG-10 Super Steel core, clad with two layers of high carbon steel, and triple-riveted POM handles, this superior line of Japanese designed knives take a killer edge and hold that edge longer.  The line consists of eight pieces which include four Gyuto’s (Chef’s Knives), ranging in size from 210mm to 300mm, a 7” (185mm) Santoku (Utility Blade), a 7” (185mm) Nakiri (Vegetable Clever) and two (120mm/150mm) Petty’s (Paring Knives).

"Created from the highest quality VG-10 Steel from Japan, the Empire line combines a design for performance and superior components built to exceed the expectations of today's distinguished chefs," explains Joseph Flaherty, Vice President of Sales, Food Service and National Chains for Mercer.

Empire will be offered through select distribution channels.
