Senzo Bamboo Pankiri (Bread Knife) 220 mm (8.7")
- Knife Care
At SharpEdge, we believe that every kitchen knife set should include a great serrated bread knife!
The Senzo Bamboo Pankiri (Bread Knife) has a serrated blade that is perfect for cutting a variety of breads - from harder homemade sourdough loaves to soft buns from city bakeries. The knife is the optimum length for home use and allows comfortable and easy handling.
The structure of the serrated blade allows slicing through softer loaves and baguettes without deforming their shape. The serrated blade is also suitable for cutting roasts and other large pieces of meat, cakes, sushi rolls, etc.
The handle is made of bamboo wood and is compatible with the weight of the blade.
Seseragi Bread Knife is made in Seki, the cradle of ancient forging skills in Japan with more than 800 years of tradition in manufacturing katanas and other Samurai weaponry.

☝️ Japanese kitchen knives in our store are handmade from natural materials. Slight variations in color, texture, weight and other dimensions are possible. We try to give a good photographic representation of our products, however computer screen resolution and colors do vary, so products might not look exactly as they are seen on screen.
Blade wear depends on the quality of steel, usage and maintenance of the blade. Japanese knives are made of high-quality steels. Follow these tips to keep your Japanese knife in top-notch shape:
✔ Use a wooden, plastic or rubber cutting board.
✔ After use, wash the knives and wipe them dry.
✔ Use a magnetic rack, knife blocks, or use protective knife sheath (saya).
✔ A good cutting technique is your best bet to prolong sharpness.
✔ Use sharpening stones to sharpen the knife.
❗️Don’t leave the knife in the sink. Wash it by hand.
❗️Don’t wash the knife in the dishwasher.
❗️Don’t use the knife on glass, ceramics, marble or steel surfaces.
❗️Don’t scrape the food off the cutting board with the edge of the blade. Use the spine of the knife instead.
❗️Knife is a tool intended for specific use - cutting food. It is not a can opener, screwdriver, trowel, wire cutter, hammer etc.
