The Gude Alpha bread sword glides through hard and soft crusts. It has a 12.5 inch long, straight blade with the famous Gude serrated edge made of stainless & hand-ground chrome-vanadium-molybdenum knife steel. The blade length won't let you despair even with wide loaves and the dead weight supports your sawing movement so that only light pressure is needed. A truly impressive bread knife in all respects.
Gude knives are hand-forged in Solingen, Germany from one piece of chrome-vanadium-molybdenum steel, from the blade tip to the double crop. The double crop, a special feature of Gude knives, is a counterweight to the blade. The knife is perfectly balanced. The special mixture of steel and the elaborate manufacturing process with more than 30 manual steps give the stainless steel blades with a hardness of approx. 57 HRC a special robustness and longevity.
The finely polished Hostaform handles are embedded in the steel and triple riveted. Hostaform plastic is extremely resistant, very hygienic and comfortable to hold. The Alpha series meets the strict requirements for use in the gastronomy and offers the widest range of models.
