Of all of the knives we sell here at Tundra, one of the most sought after knives for the food service industry are Mundial knives. Not because they’re the best of the best, but because they’re the best buy for a good, reliable knife. When you go through as many knives as the commercial kitchen does, having a great knife, that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, is just what is needed to stay on the cutting edge of things.
In Germany in 1931, Mundial came to life by Paul Zivi, a metallurgist that was concerned with crafting a knife that would hold up to daily, heavy-duty uses. Since then, Mundial has moved to Brazil and continues to offer strict testing guidelines on each of the knives they produce, and because of this, they’re able to offer a full, lifetime guarantee against defects in materials, construction, and workmanship. Today, Mundial is one of North America’s most used brands in restaurant and institutional cutlery. They’re also a leader in retail and industrial scissors and shears.
If you’re in the market for commercial cutlery that is durable, yet relatively priced, make sure you check out our Mundial knives: sets range from $50-$600 and individual knives range from $3 – $50. Also, make sure to check out what Bon Appetit voted the best $20 chef’s knife.
As a side note, a metallurgist is an engineer with expertise in the physical and chemical behaviors of metals and alloys.
