Mercer Culinary® Millennia® Knives – A Good Thing Is Now Better


May 2021, Ronkonkoma, NY – Mercer Culinary® continues its tradition of foodservice innovation and its mission of promoting kitchen safety by introducing raised Santoprene® texture on its Millennia® knife handles. Integrating the new handle onto Mercer’s workhorse knife series takes performance and safety to new levels.

The new raised Santoprene® textured handle, along with the protective finger guard and textured finger points are all features that create a safer environment in busy kitchens.

“The textured handle provides chefs with a vastly improved grip making it much less likely to slip out of one’s hands while reducing fatigue,” said Joe Flaherty, Mercer Culinary Senior Vice President. “We took what was already an exceptional culinary tool and made it even better.”

Designed for all-day use by today’s professional chefs, Millennia® knives are made of one-piece, high-carbon Japanese steel. The high-quality steel allows for easy blade maintenance and rapid sharpening for a razor-sharp edge. The ergonomic handle is made of a combination of Santoprene® for comfort and polypropylene for durability.
