Say goodbye to the days of squished and crumbly bread from using an inadequate bread knife. Use this knife for bagels, bread loaves, hoagie buns, pound cakes and much more! It also is great for cutting fibrous vegetables such as cabbage and celery. The 6 inch blade on the bread knife is made from surgical grade, T420 high carbon stainless steel. The small, sharp single-sided serrated edge creates effortless cutting and slicing. The hollow ground blade ensures a precision concave surface for maximum edge retention. Made for comfort and safety, the handle on this bread knife includes a finger guard for added protection. The handle on the bread knife is comprised of a black stainless steel resin that can be washed in the dishwasher. Hand washing fine cutlery is recommended but this handle is dishwasher tolerant.
