Kai’s Wasabi Black line of knives offers the best knives of both worlds, providing a selection of blades from both traditional Japanese and Western styles. The Kai Wasabi Black 9” Bread Knife comes from the Western side of the family with a keen double-bevel edge. This long, blade offers wide serrations to best handle a variety of breads with no crushing and less crumbling. Wield this fine blade against crusty loaves, delicate rolls, and chewy bagels without ripping or tearing, as well as fruits and vegetables with thick, tough rinds. With its length and serrations, the Kai Wasabi Black 9” Bread Knife handles large loaves, sandwiches, and even winter squash with ease.
The blade of the Kai Wasabi Black 9” Bread Knife provides exceptional sharpness and edge retention, created from high-carbon Daido 1K6 stainless steel. Sharpened to a 16˚ angle each side, the blade is graze-finished for an eye-pleasing brushed-steel look. The handle is constructed using polypropylene synthetic resin into an easy-to-grip traditional Japanese style. For best results, Kai Wasabi Black cutlery should be washed by hand.
