The MIYABI 5000MCD bread knife has a long, strong blade. The serrated edge is able to cut through thick, crusty bread easily and evenly and is ideal for every-day kitchen use. The knife has a traditional, practical design and cuts precisely and efficiently. It also features an impressively ergonomic masur birch handle. The grain of the wood used to make each handle is different, resulting in a truly unique product. The lines and stripes that cross the handle are a key design feature of the MIYABI 5000MCD bread knife. The blade's exceptionally hard core is made from micro carbide MC63 powder steel, a steel of above-average performance that easily meets the requirements of a professional kitchen. The core of the knife is encased by one hundred layers of steel, all of different grades and hardnesses. The blade construction is what sets the MIYABI 5000MCD bread knife apart: state-of-the-art processes ensure a hardness of approximately Rockwell 63 and cutting capabilities of the very highest quality. The unique blade measures 23 cm in length. It can cut through firm bread crusts and easily carve bread into ready-to-serve slices. Optimum performance is ensured by the high-quality materials used to make the knife.
