Kai has created another innovative masterpiece of Japanese black-smithing with its Shun Nagare Series. Its sophisticated design, the special properties of the materials employed, and a technically complex production process places this series of knives among the pinnacle of the luxury class. An artfully decorated, radial pattern of Damascus layers adorns the highly polished blades. This effect, combined with the mottled grey-black handle, lends the knife an impressive overall appearance. The series’ blades consist of two different types of steel, which are bonded to form a 72-layered piece of Damascus steel. This complex layering of two types of steel results in a blade with exceptionally sustainable cutting ability, which has been recognised by the awarding of the German Design Award 2017 Special Mention

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.
