This is a new item from a recently discovered blacksmith working in Miki, Japan. The steel is stainless and the basic design and execution are rather good considering the low price.
Bread knives are one of the basic shapes that should be in everyones knife arsenal. But many people find that they use them so rarely that the cost is not justified. However, a bread knife is so much more than its name suggests. It can cut cakes and baked good without spilling a crumb. It will take on tomatoes and other soft fruits with secure ease. Slicing cooked protein is also on its do list. And lest we forget the abilities of those serrated teeth to slice through every style and thickness of bread.
The blade of this example is stamped from a single piece of generic stainless steel. We really like the basic shape of the knife with its gentle curve and nicely crafted serrations. It is a full tang design with a simple wooden handle attached with three stainless rivets.
This is great addition to any knife roll or rack and given its very competitive price should find favor with users who don't even eat much bread!
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
