Pomme Table Knives by Shizu Hamono

Just like a hand-painted antique plate or well – used tool, we manually engrave, brush and sharpen the blade of each “pomme knife” one by one to ensure absolute comfort when held.

Pomme is a series of slender and stylish cutlery that can be used in any table or kitchen setting. They have an elegant aesthetic and a comfortable fit and finish. Their heft feels very comfortable in-hand. 

Brushed with 99.9% pure 24k gold, the finish is subtly matte, brushed - not shiny gloss.  The knife will develop patina and change wonderfully with use, leaving an impression of each meal or gathering. 

Bread knife 

Pomme bread knife has two types of serrated edges developed originally.

When you cut a hard part of the bread, use a jagged wave blade at the tip to cut it.

On the other hand, when you cut the soft part of the bread, if you use a rounding blade on the handle side, the thin slice slicing will finish beautifully, and the bread scrap will hardly come out.

If you like bread, it is a gem that I would like you to have by all means. The shape also works well for spreading soft cheeses, spreads, or butter.

Tips:

When cutting the hard surface of the bread, use the sharp edge on the tip, which smoothly cut in the bread.

When cutting the soft centre part of the bread, use the gentle curve edge, which makes the slices beautiful.

Cheese knife

This cheese knife is suitable for cutting the cheese of the semi-hard type from the soft type. Because the blade is jagged, it can be used as a decoration knife. The tip is sharp so that when the cheese is cut and taken to the plate, it is made to stab like a fork and to use it. It is a shape designed to cut the cheese and take it to a plate.

This blade has a serrated edge at the tip, which makes cutting hard cheese easier.
