Mundial Knives

Most aspiring and professional chefs {and home cooks for that matter} will agree that having sharp, efficient knives in the kitchen is of the utmost importance. At Mission we have a wide variety of knives and cutlery options to choose from. Today we are spotlighting Mundial for its state of the art manufacturing, superior quality, and competitive pricing. When holding two knives up side by side, it's hard to determine what edge will cut better, and overall, what knife is more efficient. This global brand has set itself-and it's knives-apart for a few key reasons:
  1. Unlike most competitors, Mundial knives have handles that are implied by injection molding. Ultimately, the handle is fused to the shank of the blade, creating a tighter seam while diminishing the chance for microbial bacteria to slip through.
  2. Mundial runs all their knives through a quality control progam at the CATRA testing lab in Sheffield, England. A slew of rigorous and sophisticated tests are performed on the product from start to finish during the manufacturing process. Perhaps the procedure with the most telling results is the Cutting Edge Retention Test. What is the Cutting Edge Retention Test? It is performed by running the knife back and forth for 60 strokes over thin paper. A measurement is then taken of the depth of the resulting slice. Mundial measured 489 mm while competitors got 101 mm and 286 mm. Needless to say, Mundial was the overwhelming winner.
  3. Mundial has made it their mission to be proactive for food safety procedures and precautions. This can be seen in two arenas:
    • The Anti-Microbial Agent: Mundial is now stamping an anti-microbial agent into all of their poly-handled products.
    • Food Safe Color-Coated Items: Mundial has created color-coated knives to prevent cross-contamination and food borne illness in the workplace. They are ideal for many different commercial and institutional settings, like schools and hospitals.
Since the early 1930s Mundial has created a state of the art product that continues to dominate the marketplace for its excellence and superior quality manufacturing.
