The finest art of Japanese knife-making for all your culinary needs: Thanks to its 23cm long serrated blade, you can deftly cut slices of any type of bread. The TANREI Bread knife’s blade is ultra-hard with excellent edge retention, yet still highly flexible. This elegant bread knife from the TANREI series allows you to cut even, smooth slices of bread, whether in your home kitchen or the catering trade.

Countless culinary possibilities lie open to you thanks to its newly developed premium blade steel, which achieves an outstanding hardness of 63 HRC. The 101 layers of premium steel are a sight to behold: Its outer appearance alludes to the two worlds united within, due to the Japanese bread knife’s unique, graceful damask pattern. This is different on each and every blade and flows smoothly from the blade into the handle. Japanese craftsmanship meets the German art of engineering. Design and performance in harmony.

The Japanese bread knife’s 23cm blade is completed by the ergonomically rounded three-rivet handle made from fine micarta wood. Blade and handle – these two components of the TANREI Bread knife together ensure excellent balance and the highest possible cutting comfort. A real highlight for your kitchen – not just for lunchtime.

A serrated edge – a must-have for bread
