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.
