The return of the Ashi 180mm Swedish stainless petty. Big petties make an awesome line knife, just long enough for small slicing jobs but not so long to limit its tasks.
Ashi knives have a great thin hand ground blade that cuts amazingly smoothly and sharpens easily and has excellent edge formation. $190 with saya in SF shop and online coming to Oakland shop soon

The origins of the now standard bread knife design go back this German style knife from the Hamburg still made by the Robert Herder company in Solingen.
The handle looks backwards but was meant to be held with the blade facing the user to cut bread like the girl in the photo is doing. Bread cut during work on the farm would be cut without cutting boards and this style was designed for this technique.
Older English bread knives also have a vaguely similar blade shape and length but the handle is very different. I’m curious to find the common ancestor to these Northern European knives.. Bread knives have really only taken a standardized design in the last half of the 20th century, the tip of the Hamburg knife persisting as weird as the old knife looks today.
6.75” carbon steel with cherry handle $42
