The superhero of bread knives.
The Superbread is a New West KnifeWorks signature design. Most bread knives leave no room for the knuckles which means one of two things: either you're forced to slice near the edge of the counter or you risk bruising your knuckles. The Superbread is shaped more like a chef knife so it leaves plenty of knuckle room AND allows much better control than lessor offset bread knives. Finally, a unique 'wave' serration gives an incredibly sharp edge that can be honed and fully sharpened using a ceramic rod.
So much more than a bread knife.
While the Superbread performs heroic deeds on bread, its superpowers extend far beyond the breadbasket. This is the ultimate slicer for meats, tomatoes, gravlax, and any other soft food that tend to crush when cut with a straight-edged knife. Because of its aggressive smooth edge, some chefs actually use this mighty artifact as their primary knife for prep work as it cuts through a crate of vegetables with very little effort.
New West KnifeWorks: America's Best
Like cooking, making knives depends on using the best ingredients. The Superbread Knife features the highest performing knife steel on the market-- S35VN "Powder Metal" steel. This high carbon, alloyed steel has it all: elite sharpness, toughness, edge-holding, stain resistance, and sharpenability. Our knives are made in the US with American steel and backed by a lifetime guarantee.
