The Ken Onion Rain Series "Slicing Knives" Category is comprised of pieces that were designed with inspiration from the graceful Japanese draw back cutting motion. The 9" Bread knife has notches on the top, for increased stability of the index finger, allowing for more control when cutting large items. The reverse scallop edge makes cutting crusty bread and cake very easy, allowing you to glide through without creating excessive crumbs. The 9" bread knife works well to slice large fruit such as pineapple or watermelon, but can also be used to slice meat.
The G-10 handle, impervious to both heat and moisture, is designed with an indentation for your fingers to fit impeccably, creating the perfect safe grip. It combines a signature drop handle and control bump that lets you use the knife smoothly and efficiently no matter how tall you are or which hand you cut with, while reducing forearm stress and offering increased stability.
Constructed of high-performance stainless steel, the surface of the blade has been treated by a proprietary process creating the "rain" pattern. This process reduces both surface tension and sticking. These air pockets significantly reduce the amount of surface area in contact with food being cut, resulting in a blade that slices effortlessly with an almost non-stick surface.Use & Care
Hand wash the 9" Bread knife with soapy water and dry, storing in a knife block or in-drawer knife tray for safety. To maintain your 9" Bread knife, run it lightly along the steel starting at the base of the blade and finishing at the tip. Remember that you want to apply very light and even pressure, maintaining the same angle (15-degrees) as you drop and pull the blade across the steel.
