*Anna has this and loves it*
Exquisite and exquisitely sharp, this perfectly balanced stainless steel bread knife is handmade in Japan by highly skilled craftspeople with generations of artisan experience. Each knife is made with three layers of expertly whetted steel: the blade boasts a diamond hard molybdenum vanadium steel core with a softer, hone-able stainless steel coating, and the easy to wield ergonomic handle is fashioned from sleek and hygienic stainless steel. Smaller than its Large Kitchen Knife counterpoint, this smaller statured blade boasts maximum versatility, with a subtle pivot-friendly curve and sharp point to the blade. A go-to for chopping and prepping everything from butternut squash to cote du boeuf. 10 1/2"
