Kasumi 10" Bread Knife
Wide serrations on the Kasumi 10-inch Bread Knife are razor sharp, cutting through bread without smashing or tearing the interior like other breadknives can do. An ideal bread slicer, this bread knife is great for tough challenges like sourdough, baguettes, rye, and ciabatta while delicate enough for banana bread, brioche, pastries, challah or pumpernickel.
