This knife is great for slicing tomatoes and other thin-skinned fruits because the serrated edge glides right through the flesh without squishing it. Also great for cutting sausages, thicker-skinned citrus and crusty bread. Get one for your kitchen and one to take with you on picnics! 5", high carbon, no-stain steel blade with 4.5", black ergonomic handle. Hygienic and dishwasher safe, although we recommend hand washing all knives to maintain a sharper edge.
