9" Superbread Ironwood

25 items left


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 steel.

So much more than a bread knife.

While the Superbread performs heroic deeds on breads, its super powers extend far beyond the bread basket. 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. 

As the first major addition to our chef knife collection since switching to G10 handles for our "G-Fusion" line, New West KnifeWorks is proud to offer our line of Desert Ironwood S35VN chef knives. After months of testing various hardwoods and laminate woods for durability, water resistance, and overall look and feel, the richly textured desert ironwood rose to the top. These richly grained handles and super sharp blades will impress the most selective chef knife aficionados.
