BLACK CERAMIC COLLECTION – 8” SERRATED BREAD KNIFE
Aserrated bread knife is a specialty knife designed to cut through the bread crust without compressing its soft interior in the process. The key design point is the frequency and width of the serrations. The Kiksumi bread knife features low-frequency serrations – lower number and wider spacing of teeth – that help the blades glide through bread quickly and cleanly whether it is soft are hard crusted.
The idea behind the length of the 8″ serrated blade is it allows the user to cut large surfaces in long, smooth strokes – similar to a carpentry saw. The serrated teeth help the knife grip the bread’s surface, keeping it straight and steady without the need to apply downward pressure that might compress the loaf.
BREAD KNIFE USES
Whether freshly baked or several days old the bread knife can handle cutting straight and smooth with ease. Soft white bread or crusty artisan bread pose no problems for a Kikusumi bread knife. Bread is not the only use for this knife – it is great for cutting through both soft cakes (sponge) and dense cakes (pound cakes) even when freshly baked. Hard skin fruit like pineapple or vegetables like pumpkin can also be peeled with the bread knife so long as one is careful not to flex or twist the blade.
In addition to slicing breads, bagels, and rolls, your serrated bread knife can also slice through tough-skinned bell peppers and tomatoes. The serrated blade will gently cut through a tougher skin without crushing the juicy interior. It is also great for cutting away the rind of watermelons, honeydew. And it’s perfect for slicing other baked goods, such as cakes.
Kikusumi bread knife was designed with a straight blade section on the front and back end of the blade. The idea behind it its that the straight edge easily cuts through hard crusts while the serrated center section grips and smoothly slices the bread. The result is that the Kikusumi bread knife makes a very clean cut, creating beautifully thin slices with minimal crumbs.
With a long serrated knife edge that glides effortlessly through foods with minimal resistance the Kikusumi Bread Knife is ideal for all types of breads and pastrires as well fruit and vegetables with tough, waxy skins. Kikusumi blades will stay sharp up to 15 times longer than metal-based knives. Contamination free and chemically inert, Kikusumi ceramic blades will never rust or cause food to brown. Light, precise and comfortably ergonomic Kikusumi knives are best used with a wood cutting board.
