About the Shape - Bread is the cornerstone of civilization, a noble food worthy of its own family of knife. Rather than destroy the beautiful bread that you've just baked or bought, that gorgeous hunk of gluten deserves to be sliced with the finest of serrations. This blade is razor-sharp even by regular knife standards and will have no issue zipping through thousands of hearty loaves.
This knife features classic serrations and is made from super-hard stainless steel, allowing it to remain sharper than most other bread knives.
About Miyabi Birchwood - Miyabi knives stand out as works of art in the manufactured knife world. Zwilling of Germany, realizing that high-performance Japanese steel was taking over the knife world, did the practical thing and bought themselves two Japanese knife factories in Seki City Japan, a mecca for knife producers. Because of this unique blend, they offer a look and feel that bridges both cultures that are rare among knife makers.
Miyabi really outdid themselves in terms of sexiness with their Birchwood series. A blade forged from SG2 steel is guaranteed to work exceptionally well. What really ties this knife together is the rounded Birchwood handle, made to nest perfectly in your hand. Not just the average Birch, a Karelian (Masur) Birch is used, a highly prized material used for many purposes.
