Henckels Fine Edge Pro 31467-200 Bread Knife - Das Ist Wunderbar
I can’t remember if we got this for our wedding or or shortly after but this knife…is the BOMB for slicing bread.
They don’t call this one the “Fine Edge” bread knife without a reason. This thing cuts and wow it is sharp. After 14 years, it still is scary sharp as I found out one time when our Wusthofs and Cutcos were dirty, and I tried to peel an apple with it. Pro Tip, don’t do that, you’ll cut yourself. It’s a huge bread knife and it should be used as such. The thing I can’t figure out is how the serrated edges stay so sharp for so many years.
My Henckels Fine Edge Pro is the one knife in our whole block that I’ve never actually had to sharpen.
Like most good, modern knives, the blade goes all the way through the handle and is held securely in place by 3 sturdy steel rivets.
For what it costs (if I had to replace it), and how long it has lasted, I’m glad we have ours. It is sharp, easy to hold, and the sawing action is efficient. The balance is about perfect, and it doesn’t stick to the bread when cutting. It doesn’t require much pressure, and is long enough to get through even my wife’s round loaves of Finnish flatbread.
- Nice balance for something with such a long blade
- Grip is good for people with larger hands
- Wow this thing is sharp.
- Long blade can be used for cutting anything from hoagie rolls, to normal bread loaves, to even large round flatbread loaves.
