If you are on the search for a bread knife that can double as a slicer then we may just have your weapon of choice here with the Yaxell Dragon Bread Knife. It features a long, slim blade with sharp rounded serrations. These rounded points allow the knife to be used to slice proteins very efficiently without tearing them like a pointed serration would. Another plus of this arrangement is that the knife creates fewer crumbs when slicing bread and cakes and less damage to ingredients like tomatoes or other tough fruits.
The Yaxell Dragon Bread Knife is made with one-piece construction using nitrogen-enriched American BD1N steel, hardened to a Rockwell Hardness of 63. This high hardness helps with the reduction of a rolled-over edge. It exhibits first rate edge retention and overall sharpness.
The lovely handle is made from an FDA approved black Micarta resin with three stainless steel rivets and a finely made stainless steel bolster. The Dragon Series of kitchen cutlery is made in Seki, Japan by Yaxell, one of Japanís leading knife manufacturers since 1932.
This is a great series of knives, combining the best of Japanese knife making skills with the technology of this advanced American steel.
