The 8" serrated Griphinity Pegasus Bread Knife has a core and blade made of Japanese Aichi Techno Metal Fukaumi AUS-10 super steel which is a world famous high-carbon stainless steel.
The hardness is 62±. The highly refined high carbon vanadium in the steel ensures that the razor-sharp edge remains for a longer period of time.
Folded forging provides a very distinct and beautiful Damascus rose pattern.
Its jagged edge makes it ideal for cutting hard crust bread or soft bread and cake.
A vacuum heated treatment technology improves the fatigue strength of the knife greatly and extends the life-span of the knife.
The blade is elaborately polished until it reflects an image like a mirror and abrasive blasting processes enhance the production of the Damascus pattern.
