Sori Yanagi Bread Knife
Durable stainless steel bread knife with long lasting durability. Designed by Japan's most influential post-war industrial designer, Sori Yanagi, who is most well known for creating timeless design and user-friendly tools in the kitchen and home. At first glance, the simplicity of his designs can sometimes seem unremarkable, but with use, can be felt in big ways by chefs and at-home cooks alike.
Often listed amongst legendary masters of industrial design like Charles and Ray Eames and Arnie Jacobsen, Yanagi is considered to be one of Japan's most influential product designers and leader of the Industrial post-war design movement in Japan. Credited as the father of Japanese modern design, Yanagi's bent plywood stool, the "BUTTERFLY STOOL", which was designed in 1956, is currently part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in NY. Sori Yanagi's kitchen product series began with an extensive line of cutlery in 1974, and has since expanded to include pots, pans, kettles, colanders, bowls, knives, utensils and cast iron grills. His design concept nurtures simplicity and the seeking out of small ideas that affect in big ways.
