Case Melon Testers

Newly updated from Case, it’s their awesome Melon Tester line! Their long, slender stainless steel blades were originally designed for gauging the ripeness of produce-hence, Melon Tester!  However, these knives aren’t just for coring cantaloupes; they have also proven themselves admirably as steak knives, too! Available in a variety of edge configurations and handle styles, whether you’re cutting into a sirloin or a watermelon, this is the knife for you! Take a look at!

Here’s the word from Case:

In the late 19th century, produce buyers carried a slender knife to cut a plug from a melon to assess its freshness. These “melon testers” caught on beyond the produce markets and even the knife makers from Case carried them into restaurants to cut their T-bones. Today’s Case Melon Testers are ripe with features like mirror-polished, stainless steel blades honed to a fine edge or finished with our exclusive Miracl-Edge serration.
