The ultimate slicer for everything from crusty artisan loaves to soft, buttery brioche, this precision knife has a unique scalloped blade for top performance. The large and small scallops work together to ensure efficient slicing-without tearing and with fewer crumbs. The extra-long blade allows you to slice even the widest European-style loaves. The blade's width raises the handle off the cutting board, leaving plenty of room for knuckle clearance as you slice cleanly through the bottom crust. A special arched bolster, designed by architect Matteo Thun, promotes a perfect thumb grip to ensure unrivaled comfort. Knife is precision forged using Zwilling's Sigmaforge process, resulting in an exceptionally hard yet flexible blade. Zwilling's Friodur ice-hardening technique results in a harder, sharper blade that is corrosion resistant and highly elastic. Precise lasers are used to ensure each blade's edge is at the optimal cutting angle for maximum sharpness. Arched bolster perfectly supports the thumb for ultimate comfort, safety and precise handling. Also allows the full length of the edge to be sharpened, from tip to end. The sleek ABS resin handle is triple riveted to the blade and contoured for a secure, comfortable grip. Made in Germany by Zwilling J.A. Henckels, founded in 1731.
