Our olive wood from the Greek heartland is particularly hard and dense. We take the wood of the olive, which can live up to one thousand years, from olive trees that no longer bear. Each knife handle tells the story of hundreds of years of Mediterranean cuisine and culture.

Product description

The Olavson bread knife is an essential piece of equipment in your knife drawer. With the wavy and sharp blade, you can masterfully cut through crispy crusts. It's easy to cut bread and crusty rolls with precision. You can also use your new helper for other cutting tasks; the serrated edge will be a loyal companion, especially for robust foods.

The Olavson bread knife is 100% made in Germany and is hand-ground to extreme sharpness in Solingen at the traditional 'Clauberg' company. Olavson's stainless knife steel is known for cutting hard foods with ease. Thanks to the convenient serrated edge, the blade glides easily through hard crusts with little effort. The blade remains stainless and can be made extremely sharp thanks to the unique steel.

Craftsmanship from Solingen

Based on the design of the Olavson Chef knife, we have developed the Olavson bread knife with the traditional company Clauberg. Clauberg is one of the oldest sharpening families in Solingen and employs only the most experienced sharpening masters.

Sharpen the unique knife steel by hand to this thin, extreme sharpness. The Olavson Bread Knife is designed with an efficient double serrated edge, allowing you to cut hard crusts with the utmost precision.
