Master Shin's Anvil #57 Bread Knife
By Master Shin's Anvil
Item Description: This Non-Serrated Bread Knife cuts through soft and crusty bread alike, with true ease. Serrated bread knives tear through the material. Master Shin's non-serrated bread knife relies solely on its sharpness to move through the bread, resulting in a much smoother cut.
Master Shin makes roughly 300+ different designs of knives and farm tools. He uses railroad tracks, repurposing the carbon steel which is rich in manganese and can be heated to a very high temperature. This steel is hardened, wear-resistant, and good for cutting. The handles are made of chestnut, slowly dried in sunlight for years so it is lightweight, strong, and rot-resistant.
With knife production, the steel is hammered a thousand times to reach the thin and sharp edge, which keeps sharp longer than inferior knives. Master Shin’s knives do not have the angular beveled edge seen in Japanese and Western knives; this is Master Shin’s preference which takes additional hammering to achieve and is another unique feature of his.
