The serrated blade and cut out sections allow the knife to glide through angel food cake gracefully. Works for “sticky” cheese like Chevre and Brie too. The handle has a patented shape, ergonomically designed to fit perfectly for right or left hand use. Oversize handle and finger indents give a great hold without strain and keeps hands clear of the tool’s functional surface. Stainless steel blade. Measures 11″/28cm long. Dishwasher safe.
