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 Hibana - 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 is rare among knife makers.
The Hibana (spark, in Japanese) line is named for the sparks that fly off of the steel when knives are forged. The 49-layer damascus pattern has been hammered to represent the image of the spark in its layers. This might be their most beautiful blade yet!
The simple acrylic handle offers a durable and sanitary option for both the home cook and professional chef.
