The knife is equally appropriate for dessert items, comfortably divvying birthday sheet cakes or thin slices of pear tart. The knife hides whimsical, bread-shaped cutouts beneath its handle.
This unique collection--by renowned blade manufacturer KAI in Seki City, Japan--offers practical kitchen cutlery in cheerful colors. Durable, high-carbon, stainless-steel blades featuring a fluorinated-resin coating offer hygienic food handling.

Made in Japan and measuring 13 by 1-1/2 by 3/4 inches overall, this bread knife is dishwasher-safe but hand washing is recommended. -- Amy Arnold
