The serrated edge slices effortlessly through thick, hard crusts, but won't tear or crush even the softest sandwich bread, and the 8" length can handle even wide, round artisan loaves. Also terrific for slicing tomatoes or chopping chocolate for baking.
Four Star is a great introduction to the world of forged German cutlery. The blade is high-carbon stainless steel, and Henckels' unique ice-hardening process and advanced metal-alloy technology keep the edge sharper longer, with a consistent angle and superb corrosion-resistance. The handle is molded of unbreakable polypropylene, with an ergonomic shape that ensures a solid, comfortable grip. It is permanently bonded to the blade tang for superior balance and durability. Dishwasher safe, but hand-washing is recommended. Made in Solingen, Germany.
