Slice effortlessly through thick, hard crusts, but don't tear or crush even the softest bread when you use a Henckels Four Star serrated bread knife. The serrated edge slices effortlessly through thick, hard crusts, but won't tear or crush even the softest sandwich bread, and the 8-inch 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.
