The Mu Fusion knife collection by Messermeister blends the best of Eastern and Western Culture, sytles and materials. The Eastern shaped handles are a phenolic resin based, black laminate of linen fibers. The handles are attached to a Western formula blade that has been tempered to a higher Rockwell and honed to a razor-like sharpness. The Mu Fusion reflects the beauty of Seki, Japan and exhibits the tradition of Japanese knife making.
The Messermeister Mu Fusion Bread Knife has an 8.75 blade and a scalloped edge. The bread knife is a wider and longer bladed version of a tomato knife.
The scalloped edge is ideal for biting into the crust of bread, allowing a smooth slicing action without exerting pressure that can compress the slice. It is also used to slice through soft-skinned fruits and vegetables. We don't recommend cutting meat.
