This is a bread knife made by Mr. Akashima Daitoku, a craftsman from Matsusaka in Mie Prefecture. Unlike mass-produced knives, it is a cutting knife that strikes and shapes steel one by one at the work of a so-called blacksmith. A cutting tool with a long history of making tools such as agricultural tools and Japanese swords. If it is familiar, it will be used in kitchen knives, especially Japanese kitchen knives. For this reason, so-called culture knives (Santoku knives), as well as vegetable cutting knives and outlet knives are made relatively well. This kitchen knife is a bread knife which is very rare in the making of cutting tools. An unusual reason is the raggedness of the knife of the bread knife. After finishing the blade, there is a process to make this jagged with a file, and this is different in kind from so-called manufacturing of cutting blade. Therefore, most craftsmen say that a knife is made with a knife but not a bread knife. On the other hand, a commercially available bread knife is called a punching knife, and becomes a mass-production type knife that machine-cuts steel to produce a blade. At the point of the cutlery, it is a different kind. As it is machine production, it may be easy to produce bread cutters with that flow. Mr. Akashima, who is making this bread knife, is making various products related to iron as well as the knife, and the pattern of the knife is also made by himself. The breadth of the processing technology unique to Akashima-san gave birth to a bread knife with a hammer. Forged iron and steel, forged and forged one by one. Sharpness, of course, the feel when picked up, and the texture that increases with use, is a unique attraction for carefully crafted blades. There are many mass-produced bread cutters, but they are used daily. Because the target to be cut is also pan, less blade damage, you can use long and long. It makes the dining table with daily bread even more enjoyable. ▼ size There are two sizes, and the work on this page is a big size. It is a general-purpose bread knife and can be used for all rounds. You can use it for a wide variety of breads, including breads and thicker baguettes.

In addition, the finely adjusted, slightly slanted blade is one of the reasons for ease of use.
