Güde Alpha bread knife
This bread knife is made by the Solingen knife manufacturer Güde according to traditional craftsmanship. The Alpha series knife is largely handcrafted in over fifty steps. This creates a high-quality cutting knife for bread and rolls that is used in gastronomy as well as in private households.
With a blade length of 21 cm, the bread knife cuts all types of bread of all sizes. Even rustic breadcrusts can be cut into even, representative slices with this knife. The knife including the handle has a total length of 33 cm. The blade is continuously connected to the tang. With a weight of 200 g it lies securely and easily in the hand and helps the user to achieve a clean cutting result. The bread knife has the typical serrated edge on one side. This preserves the cutting ability of the knife and facilitates the clean cutting work.
The hand-forged bread knife from Güde has a blade hardness of 56 HRC. Accordingly, a simple regrinding is possible without the material suffering as a result. The one-piece blade of the knife is made of X50CrMoV15 steel. The mixture of chrome-vanadium-molybdenum is mainly used by the Güde company for the production of high-quality knives. This means that the blade has an optimal level of corrosion resistance, i.e. it is rust-free. The blade steel is ice-hardened after processing. As a result, the knife remains as sharp as when used for the first time, even after repeated use.
The material of the knife handle consists of the special plastic Hostaform. This makes the handle permanently wear-resistant, robust and tough. Since the shaft is finely polished, the knife is also easy to maintain. However, due to the inclusion of stainless steel and aluminum rivets on the handle, the knife is not suitable for the dishwasher. The handle length is 12 cm and is therefore optimally in the hand. This knife is suitable for right-handers.
Güde Alpha series:
Güde Alpha series knives are handcrafted in over 30 operations. The blade with a continuous tang is forged by hand from a piece of chrome-vanadium-molybdenum knife steel, ice-hardened, is rust-free and hand-sharpened. The handle - made of robust and easy-care Hostaform - is finely polished. Chef's knives of the Güde Alpha series meet the guidelines for knives for use in gastronomy without exception.
