Why a bread knife? Although it's not the most frequently used knife in your kitchen drawer, for a limited set of tasks, this knife is unmatched in its performance. Bread knives are so named because they are ideal for making straight, even slices in a loaf of bread, which has a soft and airy texture within its tough exterior. A good bread knife will pierce through a hard crust without tearing or compressing the fluffy center. The serrated edge of our Chikara Series bread knife makes it a useful tool for cutting squash, melons, or any other food with a sturdy peel and a soft middle.
Ginsu Chikara Series blades are forged from Japanese 420J2 stainless steel that is known for its stain and rust resistance, strength, and its ability to hold an incredibly sharp edge. The traditional Japanese-style handles are made of heat and water resistant resin and fit smoothly into your hand.
