The Chikara series 8” bread knife is the end-all of bread knives. Forged from a single piece of 420J2 Japanese steel, the bread knife is resistant to rust and stains, and holds an incredibly sharp edge. Forging the knife gives the blade added durability and strength, and its deep serrations cut through bread with even pressure. For added balance and control, the tang of the blade extends through the heat and water-resistant ergonomic handle to give you perfect slices every time without smashing down the bread loaf. To keep the blade’s edge and strength, be sure to only wash it by hand. Enjoy a limited lifetime warranty when you purchase!
