The Lamson 5" Serrated Tomato Knife is an ideal tool to have when you are cutting though tomatoes, cheese, salami, fruit, and other foods. A serrated edge on the blade easily glides through tough skin, yet it is gentile enough to cut delicate interiors without crushing it. The forked tip on the end of the knife can be used to transfer cut meats and cheeses from cutting board to serving tray or plate.
Lamson uses only the finest grade 4116 high-carbon stainless steel from Solingen, Germany when crafting their quality knives. Every knife is precision forged using the same Hot-Drop Forge technique used years ago and is tempered to 58° Rockwell. This method results in a sharper, harder blade that has greater edge retention. Each Lamson blade is specially crafted in the United States of America. While you are cutting, having a balanced knife is very important. The full tang blade and triple riveted handle provide you with the perfect balance in every knife. To provide a seamless transition between knife blade and tang, each knife has a recessed bolster for added balance and safety.
To fit your personal taste, Lamson has four different handle finishes for you to choose from: silver, earth, rosewood, and fire. Each finish features different properties that might make one more suitable than the others. The silver finish handle is resin-infused wood with nickel silver rivets. Using a resin-infuse wood handle will give you the look of wood without needing to worry about bacteria harboring in the pours of the wood. Earth wood finished handles are similar to silver finish, being resin infused wood with nickel silver rivets, the difference being ebony wood is used for Earth handles. Rosewood handles are crafted from natural wood and are attached to the tang with brass rivets. Fire handles are made out of durable acrylic and attached with nickel silver rivets.
