The Wasabi Black Series can trace its origins to Japanese communal kitchens. Thanks to a successful combination of enduring functionality and sharpness, robust material quality, and a minimalistic design, the numerous blades of the series are intended for uncomplicated and continuous use and convince with an impressive price-to-performance ratio. Lastly, the series owes its easy-care handling to the water-resistant plastic handle - the pleasant feel of which has been achieved through the addition of bamboo powder. The matte black handle and highly-polish stainless steel blade fashioned from 1K6 steel are permanently moulded together, ruling out the accumulation of dirt.
The serrated bread knives are characterised by their sections of grooves that run perpendicular to the blade edge to enable cutting without the use of excessive force. Perfect for cutting through hard crusts of bread loaves, baguettes, bagels, and for soft items such as tomatoes, cakes with fluffy textures; primarily for most foods with a hard exterior but soft interior.
Bread knives do not require any sharpening usually. Should one wish to sharpen a bread knife, this would require the use of a ceramic rod known as a “crock-stick” which enables the sharpening of the serrated grooves segments on the knife’s blade.
