Handcrafted in Seki City, Gifu Prefecture of Japan, an area known for samurai swordsmithing with over 700 years of history making knives, this bread knife is designed with detailed attention given to the blade. Made of stainless steel, the blade features two types of serrated edges. The fine sharp edge on the tip easily cuts through hard crusts and the gentle curved edge on the center for smooth slices. From chiffon cakes to baguettes, this bread knife is designed to create thin slices with minimal crumbs. The handle is made from Japanese "Keyaki" zelkova wood shaped into a rectangular form with curved edges for a comfortable grip. Made by craftsmen at SHIZU HAMONO, a knife manufacturing company established in 1980 using traditional techniques with updated standards and a take on contemporary design.
