The Harvest. that is the moment when steel meets wheat for the first time - the moment that symbolizes the beginning of a time-honored process. The next time steel will meet wheat is on the breadboard during the centuries-old tradition of blessing, cutting and enjoying the festive (usually braided) challah bread at sundown before Shabbat.
For such a blessed ceremony, your challah deserves to be cut by a knife that glorifies and honors the origins of bread, a central symbol of our Jewish origins.
Hoshen Design Studio has created a wheat and Jerusalem-themed challah cutting knife. The European oak handle and the 440A-grade stainless steel blade combine the designs of blowing wheat stalks with beautiful intricate details of Israel’s holy city.
The handle is made of quality European oak, varnished with food-grade Danish wood oil to preserve the wood against humidity. It depicts the glorious city of Jerusalem.*
The blade is decorated with wheat stalks that lie naturally along the knife to provide the sense of movement characteristic of wheat in the field*; it is constructed of 440A stainless steel, of especially strong and high quality, which has been hardened to an ideal toughness. The blade begins at the handle and creates a uniform and very durable piece.
The loaf will be blessed and cut with the honor of the folklore, tradition and symbolism that comes with it. Consider pairing this knife with Hoshen's gorgeous wood challah cutting board sold here on MIP.
