Summary

World-renowned French chef Michel Bras believes cooking, like any art, requires the finest tools. Created in Japan in collaboration with Kai, the producer of Shun knives, this knife has oval indentations along the blade that keep slices from sticking.

  • Designed for slicing foods from salmon to ham, with a scalloped blade that minimizes sticking.
  • Hand assembled to exacting specifications.
  • Matte-finish blade is composed of three stainless-steel layers: a hardened VG-10 core sandwiched between two layers of more flexible steel for increased durability and resistance.
  • Blade is coated in titanium to enhance its antioxidation properties.
  • Etched with a unique serial number and Bras's signature emblem of cistre, the delicate Alpine fennel that grows in the hills above his Aubrac restaurant.
  • For quick identification, the handle is inscribed with the knife item number (#3), signifying the blade's form and function.
  • Black PakkaWood handle is designed in the traditional Japanese chestnut shape, to sit comfortably in the hand.
  • Comes in a maple sheath with a magnetized interior that holds the blade snugly in place for safe drawer storage.

Use & Care

Use

  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

Care

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 16-degree angle, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
