This Wusthof Silverpoint 2-piece Bread is the perfect kitchen tool for cutting the morning bagel to slicing sandwiches and bread. The Silverpoint 6-inch wavy serrated bread knife cuts with a gentle cut with less crumbs. The knife is matched with a hardwood cutting board. Silver point knives are made in Germany and are laser cut stamped knives. The ingredients of this steel are proudly etched on each blade. Wusthof not only uses the best materials to make a fine knife, but it is also crucial that each blade is precisely tempered. This tempering allows the knife to hold its edge for an extremely long time, yet still be able to be maintained in your home kitchen with out the need to be sent away for maintenance. Our unique compound angle is not seen in many knives. This angle tapers from the spine of the knife to the edge to allow for a sturdy, yet extremely sharp edge while it also tapers from the bolster to the tip to give the knife strength as well as flexibility.
