At the Yaegashi knife works customer orders can be varied. They have included for example, chisels for specialist carpenters restoring the Tōshō-gū shrine at Nikko. This is a blade maker that has endured by catering to specific needs. So when they received a customer request to be able to quickly cut and sample freshly baked bread, it was something they sought to respond to. This knife is the product of that request. Where available blades find it hard to slice bread fresh from the oven, this one through its thinness, length and material is made to perfection. Above all, it really does cut.
