Anyone who picks up the Amici Double-Serrated Bread Knife will be surprised by its unique effectiveness. While most bread knives have single serration, our innovative, precision-sharpened, double-serrated blade features a second serration along the knife’s edge, making it especially efficient for slicing through soft bread and crusty loaves alike -- without crushing or tearing. (Insider tip: you can also use it to slice those larger, tough-skinned gourds, like pumpkins and butternut squash!) A full bolster - the thicker area between the blade and the handle on forged knives - protects your fingers during any slicing or carving. The custom-grained Calabrian olive wood handle is naturally water-resistant and antibacterial, and its organic shape fits comfortably in hands of any size.
