    Michel Bras Bread Knife
    World-renowned French chef Michel Bras believes cooking, like any art, requires the finest tools. Created in Japan in collaboration with Kai, the producer of Shun knives, this knife makes a beautifully clean cut through all textures of breads, leaving few traces of crumbs. Uniquely shaped waves on the blade allow for the ideal push/pull cutting motion through all textures of breads. Hand assembled to exacting specifications. Matte-finish blade is composed of three stainless-steel layers: a hardened VG-10 core sandwiched between two layers of more flexible steel for increased durability and resistance. Blade is coated in titanium to enhance its antioxidation properties. Etched with a unique serial number and Bras's signature emblem of cistre , the delicate Alpine fennel that grows in the hills above his Aubrac restaurant. For quick identification, the handle is inscribed with the knife item number (#9), signifying the blade's form and function. Black PakkaWood handle is designed in the traditional Japanese chestnut shape, to sit comfortably in the hand. Comes in a maple sheath with a magnetized interior that holds the blade snugly in place for safe drawer storage.
