About 2 years ago I purchased a Wusthof 14" Granton Slicer. I use it a lot and it has never failed even under heavy loads at big events. It is a great knife and it holds the edge very well.

I'm a jerk when it comes to my tools, including my knives, no body uses them except a few people I trust. So for my helpers I purchased Mercer 14" Granton Slicers locally at a cost of $26.00 each. I figured they can treat them rough, which they do, and I can afford to replace a few every now and then. (But haven't had to)

I was helping a friend cater and didn't bring my personal knives. So I resorted to my helper's Mercer. I have to say they handle just as nice as the Wusthof (maybe even slightly more comfortable) and have held the edge just as well.

For someone who doesn't want to spend the big money for a Wusthof, I feel the Mercer is a great knife for the money and will serve you well.

Beginning to think maybe I paid too much for the Wusthof.... LOL

Thanks for the link but looks like they're out of stock. Bummer. I'll add my e-mail for a rain check. I've waited this long already but been itching to pull the trigger already.

In stock for a few dollars more, but this is where I bought mine from locally, they also ship.

The Mercer looks almost identical to my Forschner. It real close to the same price too. I love my Granton slicer.

Thanks for the tip. I do love me a 'spensive knife that gets used daily, but no way could I justify big coin for a slicer I will use 5-7 times a year.

That's the slicer I use, too. I probably sliced 100 briskets last year without any problems.

Great price on that knife, Ill pick up one of these for my crew to use :)
I picked up one of these early summer '15 and it has been a great knife as well, a bit more than the Mercer though.
