Description: The Henckels Miyabi Birchwood 9 inch serrated bread knife is a perfect choice for the slicing loaves of bread or even slicing tomatoes.
The blade is made from stainless Takefu SG2 super-steel surrounded by a 101-layer stunning flower pattern damascus - 50 layers on each side. The blade is not only beautiful, but exceptionally high performing, with one of the sharpest, longest lasting edges to be found anywhere.
The blade undergoes a four-step hardening process that maximizes the properties of the steel. The hardening is done in a state of the art vacuum furnace. It is rapid quenched to room temperature in mere seconds. A cryogenic treatment at -321°F enhances corrosion resistance. Double tempering improves toughness.
The edge is hand sharpened with the traditional 3-step Honbazuke method. Each blade is honed by an artisan to an angle of between 9-1/2 and 12 degrees per side. This acute angle in combination with the Honbazuke method results in scalpel-like sharpness.
The elegant, high performing blade is complemented by the D-shape masur birch (karelian) handle. It is finished with a mosaic pin and two red spacers. The end cap is finished with the Miyabi logo.
