Tough crusts will never be an issue with the Messermeister San Moritz Elite bread knife. When you prepare artisanal breads at home, either in rounds or standard loaves, the San Moritz knife can slice through without the efforts required from a smooth-bladed knife. With its nine-inch long blade, which is hand-forged from a solid block of steel, the Messermeister knife’s serrated edge with specially engineered cambering that runs along the front side reduces the pressure needed for that first cut. This classic design, with its premium German crafting, reduces compression on the softer insides of any loaf, making one swift and easy move from the top to the base for a clean cut that reduces crumbs and tearing. Featuring an Elite hand-polished edge, Messermeister’s 9 Inch San Moritz bread knife is evenly balanced along the thickened stainless blade and a full tang wrapped in a molded black POM handle that also includes an embedded plate for personalization. With an amazing sharpness and incredible comfort, the San Moritz bread knife is one that any home chef will love as part of a larger collection.
