This bread knife will swiftly slice through the softest, most tender breads and rolls without disturbing their fluffy, airy texture and can also glide easily through the thick crusts of rustic loaves. Made from a high carbon stainless steel, the blade is forged and tempered to precise specifications that provide a superior edge and lasting durability. The concave serration shields the sharp edges from happenstance wear and tear so that its sharpness is saved for cutting through hard crusts while preserving the integrity of pillow-soft bread interiors. The olive wood handle is carefully carved from thousand-year-old trees, which are harvested under government supervision from protected forests in Spain. Olive wood is notable for a dense, firm structure that boasts a unique variegated wood grain pattern, making the knife attractive enough to leave out on your cutting board even after the bread has been sliced.
Hand washing and drying is recommended to prolong the use and integrity of the knife blade. The olive wood handles are made from a living natural material that requires little care. Every once in a while, when the color of the wood begins to look dull, rub the handles with a few drops of oil, such as flaxseed oil.
The Felix family of Solingen, a city in Germany about 20 miles east of Düsseldorf, began blacksmithing knives back in 1790 as a complement their thriving farm. In the 1800s, Karl Gustav Felix began to focus solely on the production of knives, and he officially registered his company, Felix Solingen, with the government in 1843. Felix Solingen’s knives are forged from one piece of high carbon stainless steel, a traditional method that includes over 45 separate steps and ensures cutting efficiency as well as safety.
